Call for researchers - SMARTI European Training Network 2017

Applications are now open for researchers to join the Sustainable Multi-functional Automated Resilient Transport Infrastructures European Training Network (SMARTI ETN) as Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellows.

The Network, coordinated by The University of Nottingham, is seeking 15 brilliant, motivated and curious graduates with a multidisciplinary background, who are keen to spend three years growing their careers in a truly joint academia-industry context at European level.

The Network will bring together these early stage researchers in a stimulating platform where key stakeholders of the transport infrastructures sector will work alongside world renowned experts in ‘smartening’ systems. The latter include developers of high-tech sensors, advanced monitoring equipment and automated structures, etc., with direct support from academics, researchers and industry experts.

The SMARTI ETN consortium will offer training-through-research paths that no standard PhD programme can provide such as:

  • A research framework tailored around the vision for Sustainable Multi-Functional Automated Resilient Transport Infrastructures (SMARTI)
  • A strategically shaped training platform involving renowned scientists and designed to provide fellows with state-of-the-art professional development
  • A communication strategy that will provide them with maximum exposure and will train them to successfully  disseminate their work across the world to different audiences

Candidates are expected to speak and write English fluently. Language certification such as the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is desirable and for some projects, candidates will need to be enrolled in the PhD programmes of the various partner universities. Please check the eligibility criteria on our website.

Recruitment is being conducted through the SMARTI ETN website and applications are open from 15 March to 31 May 2017. To apply, visit: www.smartietn.superitn.eu/applications/application-form

All researchers are expected to start between September and October 2017.

The SMARTI ETN project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions for research, technological development and demonstration, under grant n.721493.
