ER recruitment

The 5 Experienced Researchers in the MEDOW project started work at various points before Spring 2015.  Each ER was appointed for 12 months.

Marie Curie ERs must, as the time of recruitment:
1) be in possession of a doctoral degree OR have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience
2) have less than five years of full-time equivalent research experience.

An ER may be of any nationality but, at the time of recruitment, must not have lived or carried out their main activity (such as work or study) in the country of the host institution for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to recruitment.

A very high standard of English language is required for all posts.  Academic and professional requirements were included in individual vacancy advertisements and links to the advertisements were posted on this page.

Applications from female candidates were particularly welcome as women are underrepresented in this field.
