Marie-Curie Early Stage Researcher

King's College London

The Department of Twin Research and Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London is recruiting a Early Stage Researcher (ESRs) to IMforFUTURE (Innovative training in methods for future data) project, a new, EU funded Marie-Curie Initial Training Network, starting in 2017. This is a generously funded position with a focus on training and transfer of skills, and will therefore involve secondments at a collaborating institution of between two and six months. The ESR positions will involve registration for a PhD, and will last for 36 months. 

Applicants are expected to have a very strong academic record, including minimum upper-second class (2.1) honours degree (or overseas equivalent). Fellows should have an academic background in mathematics or statistics, although those from a life sciences background with strong analytical skills are also encouraged to apply. A publication record would be highly advantageous. Fellows should have the ability to work independently, with excellent written and oral communication skills. 

Eligibility – please ensure you are eligible before making your application:

Early Stage Researchers (PhD candidates) should have received their first degree qualifying them for PhD training by March 2013, but not before March 2009. Candidates must also meet the residency and mobility requirements of the Marie-Curie programme: At the time of recruitment the researcher must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies etc) in the country of the recruiting institution for more than 12 months in the preceding 3 years immediately prior to recruitment. For a full description of the eligibility conditions see: http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/mariecurieactions/itn_en.html

The selection process will include a panel interview.
