Research with neutrons, with its interdisciplinary approach, is indispensable for modern science. Taking into consideration tremendous changes in the European neutron landscape and assuming responsibility for sustainability, the neutron community is nowadays facing an important task to ensure long-term perspectives, that essentially depend on its ability to create a new generation of innovative highly-skilled researchers. To tackle this challenge, Forschungszentrum Ju?lich (FZJ), Technical University Munich (TUM) and Helmholtz- Zentrum Hereon (Hereon), partners at the Heinz-Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ), are running the Marie- Sk?odowska Curie Acton (MSCA) COFUND project “Global Neutron Scientists” (GNeuS) that trains young neutron scientists through the establishment of a well-structured postdoctoral research program with a strong interdisciplinary and intersectoral approach and global outreach. Within GNeuS, postdoc grants are offered to solving the grand challenges facing mankind in areas such as environment, energy, key technologies and life science as well as improving the existing instrumentation and the ancillary equipments and developing new sources or optimizing the existing ones. During the five-year project lifetime and three calls, the three MLZ Partners offer a total of 45 fellowships each with a duration of 24 months.
The three GNeuS MLZ Partners are offering 15 GNeuS Postdoc Positions in Neutron Science of 24 months each within the GNeuS call N. 1, application submission deadline January 15th, 2022, at 18:00 CET.
