Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher on Resolution by Crystallization (119129)
 

Salary range : CIRCA £32,470 per annum  (depending on fluctuation of exchange rate)
FTE : 1.0
Term : Fixed (27 months)
Closing date : 15/04/2018

Applications are invited for an Early Stage Researcher (ESR13) within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network Continuous Resolution and Deracemization of Chiral Compounds by Crystallization (CORE) www.coreitn.eu.  The CORE Network brings together 8 academic and 6 industrial partners from 6 European countries resulting in an unparalleled combination of chirality, synthesis and crystallization training and research covering the areas of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Applied Physics. The research objective of the CORE Network is to jointly construct a CORE Industrial Toolbox on Continuous Resolution that provides next generation tools, approaches and methods to industry for the development continuous resolution processes. The strongly involved industrial partners will ensure that the CORE Industrial Toolbox fulfils their requirements in the skills gap areas Towards Continuous, Hybrid Resolution and Enabling Resolution.

Applicants should be in possession of, or expect to attain, an MSc in a relevant discipline such as Chemical Engineering, Chemistry or Materials science. Experience in crystallization, solid state chemistry or separation technology is desired but not essential. Proficiency in English, strong analytical & theoretical skills and clear & concise communication skills are essential. Applicants will have the ability and motivation to work independently as well as collaboratively in an interdisciplinary team. The candidates should have the ability and motivation to work independently and the desire to work together in a multidisciplinary team to achieve a general goal.  Each ESR will undertake a 3-6 month secondment with an academic partner as well as a 3-6 month industrial secondment with an industrial partner.


Applicants will be required to meet Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher eligibility criteria. Notably, at the date of recruitment, applicants must be in the first four years of their career and not have a doctoral degree. They can be a national of any country, but must not have resided or carried out their main activity in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to commencing in the role.

The successful candidates will receive a financial package consisting of a living allowance, a family allowance (where applicable) and a mobility allowance, according to the rules for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) set by EU regulations.

It is anticipated that formal interviews for this post will take place in late April 2018.

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Prof. Joop ter Horst, CORE Network coordinator (Joop.terHorst@strath.ac.uk).
