EUROPEAN POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS
SUPPORT FOR PROPOSAL WRITING AND GRANT APPLICATION FOR EUROPEAN POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN “BIOBASED POLYMERS AND MATERIALS” – LUXEMBOURG INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Fellowship: Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA), a prestigious funding scheme (part of European Commission’s Horizon 2020) for postdoctoral research projects. Researchers from any country of origin are eligible and there is no age limit. You can find more information on the MSCA fellowship here . The fellowship includes a generous salary, travel and training costs as well as a family allowance if applicable.
Eligibility: expected PhD award date no later than September 2019.
Host institute: Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST)
Host group: The research stream of Biobased Polymers and Materials lead by Dr Habibi is working across many branches of the sustainable production of materials from renewable resources. The tentative topic addressed in the research proposal will be: optically active films with high mechanical performances based on renewable buildings blocks and using green chemistry.
1) April 30th to contact the potential host and express interest in this research project
2) September 2019, deadline for the submission of the final proposal
3) If funded, the project would start around mid-2020.
Information on Luxembourg and the host institute: Luxembourg has a young research community that has grown considerably over the past 10 years thanks to a strong commitment by the government to invest in research and development.
Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a mission-driven Research and Technology Organization (RTO) that develops advanced technologies and delivers innovative products and services to industry and society. LIST supports the deployment of a number of solutions to a wide range of sectors, including energy, information technology IT, telecommunications, environment, agriculture, and advanced manufacturing of materials at national and European level. LIST’s three departments are: The “Environmental Research & Innovation” (ERIN), The “IT for Innovative Services” (ITIS) department and The “Materials Research and Technology” (MRT) department, where the present project will be developed. With over 150 employees, The MRT department focuses its activities on advanced materials and nanotechnologies. MRT translates cutting edge materials research into applicable technology. Its research and technology activities target two main areas: nanomaterials and nanotechnology, and sustainable polymeric materials.
