PhD position (f/m/d) in the EU Horizon 2020 MSCA European Training Network on Electromagnetic Risks in Medical Technology (ETERNITY)
PhD positions in the EU Horizon 2020 MSCA European Training Network on Electromagnetic Risks in Medical Technology (ETERNITY)
Applications are invited for 4 PhD positions (“Early Stage Researchers”) at KU Leuven (Belgium) to be funded by the Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network “ETERNITY – European Training Network on Electromagnetic Risks in Medical Technology” within the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is not just an annoyance. With increasing numbers of safety-critical devices communicating wirelessly, ensuring that equipment functions correctly is an ever-increasing concern. Nowhere is this truer than hospital environments. However, with highly complex interactions between devices becoming the norm, guaranteeing safety requires that we start to assess new equipment using a risk-based approach rather than the conventional rules-based approach, a method that is increasing inappropriate for harsh EMI environments. The ETERNITY ETN will train ESRs through a combination of research, doctoral schools, network-wide events and secondments. ETERNITY is about maximising opportunities; giving the ESRs the chance to really benefit from a carefully crafted research-training programme; and allowing them to learn and develop as individuals who will make a difference to a vitally important area in terms of people's safety and well-being in an increasingly technologically complex world.
At KU Leuven, the following PhD positions are open:
Applicants need to fully respect three eligibility criteria (to demonstrated in the Europass CV):
Early-stage researchers (ESR) are those who are, at the time of recruitment by the host, in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers.
At the time of selection by the host organisation, applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment.
Applicants must demonstrate that their ability to understand and express themselves in both written and spoken English is sufficiently high for them to derive the full benefit from the network training.
The ETERNITY project has received funding from the European Union's EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 under Grant Agreement No. 955.816.
