Attractive Phd Opportunities H2020 Marie-Sklodowska – Curie European Training Network List_Maps

Published

on

PROJECT TITLE: List_MAPS “Training and research in Listeria monocytogenes Adaptation through Proteomic and Transcriptome deep Sequencing Analysis”

Post Duration: 36 months
Closing Date for Applications: 31th May 2015
Contract Type: Fixed Term Whole-Time Job Type: Research
Number of positions available: 11
Researcher profile: PhD students, Early-stage-researchers

THEMES:

Environment, resources and sustainability, microbiology

OBJECTIVES:
List_MAPS is a Horizon 2020-funded European Training Network. It is dedicated to the training of innovative young researchers in the field of Microbiology and Systems Biology. It focuses on Listeria monocytogenes, a ubiquitous pathogen that is in the EU the leading cause of mortality and food recalls due to foodborne pathogens, costing the EU millions of euro per annum in medical care and associated costs in the food sector. List_MAPS is recruiting 11 Early- Stage Researchers (ESR)who will develop scientific expertise through PhD training, mobility of researchers, summer schools, workshops and transfer-of-knowledge in the areas of Transcriptomics, Proteomics, Sequencing and Systems Biology. Working in this dynamic state-of-the-art field will provide for training of ESRs to the highest level.
The network recruits 11 PhDs with the overall objective to understand the ecology of Listeria monocytogenes through the combination of high throughput Epigenetics, Deep sequencing of transcripts, Proteomics, Bioinformatics, Mathematics and Microbiology to decipher the transcriptional regulatory circuitry that drives adaptation and virulence of L. monocytogenes from farm to fork.
In addition to excellent scientific competences, the network will provide training in the transferable skills required for competitive research to secure funding, optimise management of working teams and exploit research results. ESRs will be trained in these transferable skills. This will secure world-class training for creative, entrepreneurial and innovative ESRs.
 

ELIGIBLE CRITERIA of Marie Sklokowska Curie actions:

  • Researchers may be of any nationality
  • Candidates shall at the time of recruitment by the host organization, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers.

  • Candidates must not have a doctoral degree
  • Mobility rules: candidates shall not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies) in the country of their host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior their recruitment.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Academic ability
  • Scientific skills and competences
  • Labwork experience
  • Proficiency in foreign languages
  • Level of independence
  • Other experiences

APPLICATION PROCEDURE:
Application deadline: 31st May 2015

Application should be sent by email to the specific contact named above or the website indicated. Attachments must include:

on

Mak-RIF 4 Awards and PhD Call For Proposals, 29th September 2022, 9:00 to 10:00 AM EAT.

Makerere University received funding from the Government of the Republic of Uganda, earmarked to support high impact Research and Innovations. This unique initiative arose after engagements between the top University Management and the Government of Uganda. This fund illustrates the increasing importance that the Government attaches to Research and Innovation as a driver of development and transformation. The objective of the fund is to increase the local generation of translatable research and scalable innovations that address key gaps required to drive Uganda’s development agenda. 

In the Financial years 2019/2020, 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 the Government of the Republic of Uganda through Mak-RIF has funded implementation of over 750 multidisciplinary research and innovations within the various Colleges, while engaging multiple stakeholders within and outside Makerere University. The Grants Management Committee (GMC) has finalized the award process for the Mak-RIF round 4 call for funding for this Financial Year 2022/2023.

The Grants Management Committee (GMC) hereby invites you to the Launch of the Mak-RIF Round 4 awards and PhD Call for Proposals scheduled to take place tomorrow Thursday 29th September 2022 from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. EAT.
