The i-CONN is Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) project funded by the European Commission, under their H2020 program. i-CONN will recruit and train 15 young Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to become experts with a unique skill set that includes interdisciplinary scientific techniques, through bespoke training courses and through a series of secondments to partner institutions across the EU.
About the project:
- The goal of i-CONN is to train a new cohort of researchers specialized in the developing field of Connectivity Science who will be capable of developing interdisciplinary approaches to connectivity across a range of disciplines and real-life applications in the next five to 10 years.
- Applicants should have (at the date of recruitment), less than 4 years of a research career, and not have a doctoral degree.
- Trans-national mobility: The applicant (at the date of recruitment) should not have resided in the country where the research training takes place for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to recruitment, and not have carried out their main activity (work ,studies, etc.) in that country.
- Satisfy the eligibility requirements to enrol on a PhD degree. This includes acceptable English language requirements if English is not your first language.
- All applications are to be submitted via the hosting institution and applications must include the following:
- A copy of CV
- Degree transcripts
- A motivation letter
- Names of 2 referees
