Eligibility criteria: We welcome applications until 27/11/2022 from candidates of any nationality completing the following criteria:

• Candidates must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the first recruiting organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment. Date of recruitment means the first day of the employment of the researcher for the purposes of the action (i.e. the starting date indicated in the employment contract/equivalent direct contract).
• Candidates shall, at the date of recruitment by the host organisation, be in the first four years of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree.
• Candidates must have a master degree or equivalent diploma in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering & Materials or related disciplines, with a strong background in polymer materials, bioengineering and/or biomaterials.
• Candidates may be required to provide documentation proving their eligibility for recruitment, i.e. to provide supporting documentation proving your place(s) of residence or work during the previous 3 years.
Candidates must have a high level of proficiency in written and spoken English, which will be assessed with the motivation letter and the interview, respectively.
Candidates must submit their applications through the project website www.cinema-dn.eu/open-positions until November 27, 2022. Applications must contain the following documents in one single PDF file:

1. Motivation letter.
2. A 2-page statement of your previous or current research interests.
3. Curriculum vitae.
