Call for PhD positions open

posted 23.04.2020 12:00

The call for PhD positions (ESRs) is now open. Applications should include:

  • 1. Motivation Letter (describing research career goals, skills, experience, and highlighting the consistency between the candidate’s profile and the chosen ESR position)
  • 2. A complete Curriculum Vitae with references to past research and training experiences
  • 3. Copies of Bachelor and Master’s certificates/diploma & transcripts
  • 4. Two Reference Letters
  • 5. Publications (if available).

Applications should be submitted to malga[at]unige.it in English, as a single PDF, quoting the project name and the ESR position ‘TraDE-OPT - ESR X’.

NOTE: Please select well the most appropriate position for which you would like to apply and do not send your application to more than 2 positions. In your Motivation Letter indicate if you are interested in being considered for any of the other PhD positions in our network (and if you give us permission to share your application with the host of that project). In this way we can ensure a more efficient handling of your application. TraDE-OPT recruitment and employment strategy is based on an equal opportunities policy and in full compliance with the principle of the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. We value diversity, and do not discriminate based on gender, religion, marital status, age, or cultural background. TraDE-OPT seeks to increase the number of women in those scientific areas where they are under-represented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
