|Job Description|| |
The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is a non-profit research and educational institution with a strong scientific and technological orientation, emphasizing international collaborations, cross-disciplinary research, innovation, and post graduate education. CyI, through its established research centres, addresses challenging issues that are important at both the regional and international levels. Many of its research activities are being carried out in partnership with leading institutions in the respective thematic areas.
As part of a recently awarded MSCA Innovative Training Network (ITN), CyI advertises now six short-term Early-Stage Research fellowships designed for Researchers that are already doctoral students at another Institution and seek to receive training and develop their analytical skills in the interdisciplinary study of archaeological plasters and ceramics at the Cyprus Institute (CyI).
The research to be conducted during these fellowships is expected to directly support and contribute to the main doctoral studies of the applicants, as well as having a close link to the main topic of PlaCe-ITN and the analytical and supervisory capabilities of the CyI. These fellowships will be co-supervised by the CyI and the respective PhD supervisors at the external host universities. The short fellowships will take place at the CyI labs with the potential for secondments to other laboratories of the consortium, according to the needs of the pursued doctoral research topics. No short-term fellow will be recruited without full approval of their home institution, and preference will be given to applicants who do not have access to analytical support at their home institution.
The selected candidates will need to have already secured the plaster or ceramic materials intended for analysis by the commencement of their fellowships, together with all the necessary permits for their study and sampling by the relevant authorities. During their six-month fellowships at STARC, they will be trained through practice in one or more of the following:
Secondments within the PlaCe Consortium may be arranged on an individual basis to meet specific analytical or supervisory expertise not available at CyI.
The work conducted during each of these six-month fellowships should ideally lead to at least one publication of results in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
According to the eligibility criteria set by the European Commission and the particular MSCA-ITN-2020 call, the recruited Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) will have to comply with the following conditions:
Qualified applicants from all countries are welcome to submit an application, provided they meet the abovementioned eligibility criteria.
