Early-Stage Researcher (PhD positions) in Childhood Deafness and Communication Research, Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN)

Could you make an outstanding contribution to childhood deafness and communication research? Would you like to contribute to a cutting-edge European research network? Do you want to develop your research career and study for a PhD in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

An opportunity exists for two outstanding early stage researchers to join an interdisciplinary research team from the School of Education, the School of Medicine at the University of Leeds (UK) and the Yorkshire Auditory Implant Centre, to receive supervision for the preparation of a PhD thesis, and to benefit from the combined resources of a major international training network (Comm4CHILD).

As Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellows, you will receive generous benefits, including a fixed salary/living allowance, plus mobility, travel or career exploration allowances according to the requirements for EU-funded Early Stage Researchers. Individual allowances may vary according to personal factors (such as family status and place of origin) and are calculated in Euros. They may vary, or be adjusted, according to the prevailing rate of Euro/Sterling exchange. There are strict eligibility and residency requirements that must be met.

Each researcher will be appointed on a full-time, fixed-term contract at the University of Leeds for a period of three years, which may include internship at one of our network partner organisations in another European country, and travel for research fieldwork. Availability to travel (including internationally), for the purposes of the research and training activities, is a requirement for these posts and fully funded.

ESRs will be supervised by experienced researchers from across the network, collaborate in research, attend joint training events, and contribute to workshops and conferences. The training positions are funded for three years, during which time you will pursue a doctoral degree (PhD).
