The UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) sits at the intersection between scientific discovery and real world application.
One of the top three National Measurement Institutes (NMIs) in the world, we now have a regional presence and strategic relationships with Surrey and Strathclyde Universities. Our expertise and original research have benefited UK citizens and the UK economy for over a century.
Applications are invited for the post of Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN researcher in the Electronic and Magnetic Materials group at the National Physical Laboratory. This is a fixed term position for 36 months. Applicants will be employed by NPL and will be expected to register for a PhD with the University of Surrey within the Centre for Doctoral Training in Micro- and NanoMaterials and Technologies (MiNMat).
This is an interdisciplinary project and will include opportunities for secondments and training with other European partners.
The Fellowship will provide a salary of around €40,000 p.a. that includes a living and mobility allowance. An additional allowance is available under certain circumstances.
The applicant must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies etc.) in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to recruitment (short stays & holidays are not included). Applicants must satisfy the EC’s eligibility requirements for ESR Fellowships and be in the first 4 years (full time equivalent research experience) of their research career (i.e. from the date of their obtaining a degree that would entitle them to start a doctorate) and have not been awarded a doctoral degree at the time of recruitment.
Based in a unique, purpose-built research environment, we are located in beautiful surroundings on the edge of Bushy Park, south-west London with a host of onsite facilities. These include a subsidised crèche, restaurant, free parking and our own sports and social club.
