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 facing an important task to ensure long-term perspectives that depend on its ability to create a new generation of innovative highly-skilled researchers.
To tackle this challenge, Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ), Technical University Munich (TUM) and Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon (Hereon), partners at the Heinz-Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ), are running the Marie-Skłodowska Curie Acton (MSCA) COFUND project “Global Neutron Scientists” (GNeuS) that trains young neutron scientists through the establishment of a well-structured post-doctoral research programme with a strong interdisciplinary and intersectoral approach and global outreach. Within GNeuS, postdoc grants, of 24 months each, are offered to address grand challenges in areas such as environment, energy, key technologies, and life science; as well as improving existing instrumentation and ancillary equipment; and developing new sources or optimising the existing ones.
The first call for applicants for the GNeuS fellowship programme is open from 1 November 2021 until 15 January 2022. For more information and to apply, visit https://gneus.eu/
