Pre- and post- doctoral positions


All positions have been filled, there are no vacancies

MODNET is a Marie Curie Research Training Network in Model Theory and Applications funded by grant FP6-MRTN-CT-2004-512234 from the European Commission. In the period January 2005 - December 2008 funding is available for:

  • 5 PhD studentships each of 3 years duration (Early Stage Researchers)
  • 60 months of short 'visiting' PhD studentships (Early Stage Researchers)
  • a total of 16 years of postdoctoral positions (Experienced Researchers)
Candidates must be able to contribute to one of the areas of activity of the Network, as described in its Scientific Programme. Those appointed will be expected to participate fully in the Research and Training events organised by the Network.

Appointed researchers will mainly be from the European Union and Associated States, but up to 30 percent of appointments can be from other countries.

Further Details: (see also below for a table with a list of available positions)

For general enquiries about appointments please contact the Chair of the Appointments Committee, Elisabeth Bouscaren (modnetjobs_at_logique.jussieu.fr) or the Network Co-ordinator, David Evans (d.evans_at_uea.ac.uk).

Selection Criteria:     The Network will select and appoint researchers on the basis of:

  • their scientific skills and the relevance of their research experience to the Network's Scientific Programme
  • their ability to participate fully in the training provided by the Network
  • their high career profile and their potential for excellence
  • the expected impact of the Network's activitites on their career
  • the conformity with the eligibility criteria of the Network

Equal Opportunities:     The Network will endeavour to assure a fair female representation by promoting real equal access opportunities between men and women throughout the selection.
