Eligibility Criteria


Early stage researchers (PhD students) must, at the time of recruitment by the host organization, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not yet been awarded a doctoral degree.

Experienced researchers (Postdocs): must, at the time of recruitment by the host organization, be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience. In ITN, experienced researchers must also, at the time of recruitment by the host organisation, have less than five years of full-time equivalent research experience.

Nationality
The researcher may be a national of a Member State of the Community, of an Associated Country or of any other third country.

Mobility
Researchers can be of any nationality. They are required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up their appointment. One general rule applies to the appointment of researchers: At the time of recruitment by the host organization, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of their host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date. Short stays such as holidays and/or compulsory national service are not taken into account. As far as international European interest organizations or international organizations are concerned, this mobility rule does not apply to the hosting of eligible researchers. However the appointed researcher must not have spent more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment in the same appointing organization.

How to apply
Once you meet the eligibility criteria submit your application to info@itn-aDDRess.gr, stating your choice of partner laboratory, your CV, letter of intent, and names and addresses of three referees.

Recruitment strategy
The aDDRess-ITN network supports equal opportunity. All Network partners will be involved in the recruitment process and will select fellows on the criteria of their motivation, interests, degree and grades and experience. Applications will be collected by the Coordinator distributed to all participants. Short-listed candidates will be invited to visit the lab of the PI they are most interested in joining. Interviews during the visit will be carried out by teleconferencing to include at least one other participant of the Network as an interviewer.
