Applicants should have a master’s degree (or equivalent) in Bio / Chemical / Civil / Structural / Construction Engineering, Engineering Technology or Chemistry (depending on ESR position you want to apply for), have a strong interest in concrete technology, durability and sustainability assessment. Above all, applicants should have a high interest in scientific research; an independent and well-organized working style, well-developed social skills directed towards working in an interdisciplinary team, excellent presentation and scientific writing skills, excellent English language skills.
Applicants must not have more than 4 years’ research experience and not yet hold a PhD. Researchers can be of any nationality and are required to undertake trans-national mobility. Researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country where the host is based for more than 12 months in the 3 years prior to their employment.
Applications must contain the following documents: a personal letter and curriculum vitae, a copy of degree certificates and associated certificates, a transcript of records of the bachelor and master curriculum, a copy of degree projects and any previous publications, a proof of English language skills and two recommendation letters.
The documents should be sent to [email protected] with in the title of the mail a clear reference to the ESR position(s) you apply for. Mails need to be addressed to Prof. Kim Van Tittelboom.
Application deadline: 30/01/2020
