IRAM is pleased to announce the 2nd call of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) positions to carry out PhD theses on the topics of the ACO project (see Goals): millimetre instrumentation, astronomical observations and modeling, star formation, experimental and theoretical chemistry, and advanced data and modeling analysis tools. The list of ESR available positions is reported in the ACO ESRs positions page. Successful applicants will be offered a 36-month employee contract at one of the thirteen beneficiaries, and receive a salary for ESRs as set out by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) regulations. The salary includes a living allowance, a mobility allowance and, if appropriate, a family allowance.

Interested candidates are invited to submit their application to aco-esrN, where N is the number of the ESR (see ACO ESRs positions). For example, candidates that want to apply for position ESR 4, should email to aco-esr4. In the mail, please include a letter of interest, a CV in PDF format and at least one letter of recommendation.

European and non-European students are invited to apply to any of the 17 fellowships listed below. To be eligible, the candidate needs to:

  • be in the first four years of her/his research career, since, e.g. completion of master degree, and not have been awarded a doctoral degree

  • be willing to spend at least 6 months in another institute/country of the network during the PhD thesis period.
