H2020 EID Metal_Intelligence - Six PhD positions available
Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), Lulea University of Technology (Sweden) and Outotec (Finland) Oy are partners in a H2020 European Industrial Doctorate Network called Metal_Intelligence. The network is currently filling six PhD positions in the areas of ore characterisation, ore processing, geometallurgical modelling, mineral process simulation and technology-enhanced learning. All positions will start on September 1st 2017. Applications are being reviewed and close on May 31st. Candidates with backgrounds in economic geology, mineralogy, minerals processing, geometallurgy, analytical chemistry & software development are encouraged to apply.
Candidates will hold degrees and have shown evidence of English language proficiency. Application packages need to contain a CV, a letter of motivation, copies of degree certificates and relevant Course transcripts and contact details of at least two academic referees. Candidates are encouraged to identify an alternative project should their first choice already be filled. Details of project descriptions are listed at http://www.tcd.ie/Geology/assets/pdf/M_I.pdf. Please send your application and enquiries to the identified principal investigator.
The network funding is through the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action, imposing strict mobility criteria that are explained in each detailed project description. As part of a European Industrial Doctorate Network, candidates will spend 18 months away from their host institution at a partner institution. Preparedness for mobility is therefore an important selection criterion for these positions.
