Job Title: 15 predoctoral positions within H2020 ITN SINGEK
Description
The Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM-CSIC) in Barcelona announces the opening of 15 PhD/Research positions within the H2020 SINGEK Training Network: Promoting Single Cell Genomics to explore the ecology and evolution of hidden microeukaryotes
 
Microbial eukaryotes cover the widest phylogenetic diversity in the eukaryotic tree of life and are essential components of all Earth's ecosystems. Paradoxically,they remain largely unknown, hiding a wealth of genes and genomes that are key to understand the ecology and evolution of microbial ecosystems. SINGEK is a H2020 Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN) project aimed at providing a unique and structured training programme to 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to study microeukaryotes at the single-cell level. ESR s will be trained in the use of an array of laboratory methods (cell sorting and molecular tools for nucleic acid amplification and high throughput sequencing),bioinformatic techniques (genome and transcriptome assembly and functional gene annotations),and will work on scientific questions in the fields of microbialecology and evolution in order to investigate microeukaryotes inunparalleled detail. The training structure is a central part of SINGEK project and will include: local and network-wideactivities, secondments to other network laboratories and workshops in transferable skills essential for successful career development.
 
All positions are for 3-years contracts starting in October 1st, 2016, most of them leading to a PhD degree.Specific conditions may apply to individual positions depending on local regulations.
 
Top-level graduates in biology, bioinformatics, microbialecology, molecular biology, evolutionary biology,biodiversity, biotechnology, physics, nanoscience, engineering or computer science are encouraged to apply. No discrimination will be made on the basis of nationality, gender,race,religion or disability.
 
H2020EU funding imposes strict eligibility criteria: At the time of recruitment the researcher must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work,studies,etc…) in the country of the host institute for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to his/her recruitment under the project. The researcher should also be in the first four years of their research careers at the time of recruitment by the host organisation and have not been awarded a doctoral degree.
 
Candidates may apply through the SINGEK applications system (www.singek.eu/call-for-positions/), which will request the following information:
1. An application form, including a CV overview, ESRs' positions of interest (up to 3), and a statement of their motivation for applying.
2. A full CV.
3. An academic record, with a scan of the degree qualifications.
4. Two recommendation letters.
 
Each project supervisor will revise the candidates’ documentation and,on the basis of the completeness and adequacy of the requested material and quick eligibility check, will score candidates based on:
(1)academicprofile;
(2)personalmotivation;
(3)scientificskillsandrelevantexperience;and
(4)Englishproficiency. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to teleconference interviews with the relevant project supervisor(s).
 
Application deadline: 17:00 GMT on the 29th April 2016
More information: www.singek.eu
Candidates are invited to contact potential supervisors to get more details.
