Marie Sklodowska–Curie Individual Fellowship (MSCA – IF) 2019 call

The Ultramicroscopy group is interested in receiving expressions of interest for potential candidates for the Marie Sklodowska – Curie Individual Fellowship (MSCA – IF) 2019 call. Ideal candidates to join the group under this scheme may have one of a range of backgrounds including; atomic-resolution STEM imaging and spectroscopy, image-processing and programming, machine-learning and computer vision, magnetic/electric field simulation, or electronics and applied signal-processing. Projects related to any of the groups activities are welcomed.

Deadline to submit the proposal at the EC: 11/Sept/2019, 17:00h (Brussels time). Full detils are available at the EURAXESS website.

Open PhD Opportunities (September 2019 start)

AMBER PhD Award

AMBER PhD Awards

The Computational Spintronics group and Ultramicroscopy group are currently recruiting for a joint PhD student to start in September 2019.

Project title:

Requirements:

  • The ideal applicants will have a 1st Class Honours Bachelor’s degree in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or related disciplines. Previous experience with electron microscopy and/or electronic structure theory would be advantageous but not essential. The researcher will work closely with other members of a multidisciplinary project team. Excellent written and oral communication skills are essential.

This position is funded by the SFI-research centre AMBER. The AMBER research centre, as a community of researchers, welcomes its responsibility to provide equal opportunities for all. We are actively seeking diversity in our research teams and particularly encourage applications from underrepresented groups.Positions will remain opened until filled but preferred start date is September 2 2019.
