Marie Sklodowska-Curie PHD Research Fellow x 2 (Fixed Term)

University of Lincoln - Lincoln International Business School

Two PhD research positions are available for Early Stage Researchers as part of the RUNIN Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network from 1st February 2017 for 36 months. Each appointed researcher will be paid an attractive salary based on the standard MSC guidelines and will be registered for a PhD in Lincoln International Business School. The aim of the network is to train researchers on how universities contribute to innovation and economic growth in their regions through research seeking to examine how universities fulfill their third mission in relation to regional industry and explore the range of university engagement with regional firms and institutions.

The two positions at Lincoln will be part of a larger group of 14 researchers across the RUNIN network with partners in seven EU countries. All researchers will participate in research training within their host institutions, as well as in 8 network-wide week long workshops. Each researcher/PhD student will have a co-supervisor from an international institution in the network and a non-academic mentor from a regional partner organisation, will also spend two short international secondments with other partners within the network, and will be able to benefit from support for attending other training events and conferences.

Eligibility rules: Early-stage researchers (ESR) are those who are, at the time of recruitment by the host, in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers. Marie Curie Innovative Training Networks are an international mobility scheme. Researchers are required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up the appointment. The working language of the RUNIN network is English and researchers must be able to demonstrate their ability to work and write in the English language.

All candidates will be recruited under gender-neutral recruitment processes. The project aims for gender balance among the researchers recruited to the network. Female candidates in particular are encouraged to apply.
