PRORISK is a European Training Network funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 859891 (MSCA-ETN). The consortium comprises of 18 universities, research institutions, enterprises and partner organisations in 9 European countries and Canada.
About the project:
- Vision of PRORISK is to provide a unique value by creating a novel platform for training a network of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in the field of advanced Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA).
- Applications are open for 15 highly motivated Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) with an excellent academic background in Chemistry, Biology or a related discipline who seek an opportunity to conduct research in an international inspiring and collaborative network.
- The applicants can be of any nationality.
- At the date of recruitment the applicants for the MSCA fellowship must have no PhD and less than 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience from the award of the degree that entitles them to undertake a doctorate (either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the applicant is to be recruited).
- The applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting institution for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.
- The applicants must have a BSc and a MSc or equivalent in Chemistry, Biology or a related discipline.
- The ESRs are required to spend part of their project period at other institutions in the PRORISK consortium during secondments, as described in each individual project.
- A good command of English language, with excellent oral and written skills is required.
