Principality of Monaco/ITER postdoctoral fellowships 2016 are now open for applications:
In January 2008, a Partnership Agreement was signed between the ITER Organization and the Principality of Monaco to set up a Postdoctoral Fellowship program. Since then, five young scientists from the seven ITER Member countries or from the Principality of Monaco have been appointed every two years, and - over a period of two years — are trained in research areas related to the ITER project. The principal motivation of the Research Fellowships is the development of excellence in research in fusion science and technology within the ITER framework. Brilliance and creativity, together with understanding of the relevance of the individual research interests to the ITER project are a key requirement.
The Monaco/ITER Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme allows young researchers to participate in one of the great scientific and technical challenges of the 21st century and to work closely with leading experts in fusion science and technology within a unique international framework. If you are interested in contributing to the development of fusion energy and would like to experience the ITER project 'up close', the Monaco/ITER Fellowships are a great opportunity.
Your PhD was awarded after 1 January 2013 or you are about to obtain one.
You would like to carry out a research project and to participate in publications of high-quality journal articles in fusion science and technology.
