In order to be considered for this post, you will be required to complete the postgraduate application process. Please see link below:
To be eligible, you must satisfy the mobility requirements of Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions, explained at .As a primary objective of the EID program is international mobility, transnational mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) is a requirement for the researcher when taking up the appointment. Therefore, at the time of recruitment by UoS, the candidate must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to his/her recruitment under the project. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
Furthermore, at the time of recruitment you must not yet have been awarded your doctorate and must be in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of your research career.
The salary payable to the successful candidate will differ to the ‘researcher unit cost’ as set in the Grant Agreement. The unit cost is to cover all employment costs and Employer’s liabilities to HMRC and any applicable employer’s pension contributions must therefore be deducted before from the available budget before arriving at the amount available as salary. Under UK legislation the living allowance, mobility allowance and any applicable family allowance are all deemed taxable. The gross salary calculated after Employer’s costs will then be subject to Employee’s deductions for Tax, NI and Pension contributions where applicable. The sterling salary payable will also be affected by exchange rate fluctuations and will therefore be subject to six monthly reviews.
