8 Short-term Early Stage Researcher positions available through the EvoCELL ITN (single cell genomics, evo-devo and science outreach)

The EvoCELL network is looking for 8 short-term Early Stage Researchers to work in the field of animal evolution from a cell-type perspective, evo-devo and scientific outreach.

EvoCELL is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network that brings together 8 academic and 2 non -academic organisations from 6 European countries. The network aims at studying the evolution of cell-types and tissues in a diverse array of vertebrtates and invertebrates. To do so, the labs involved in the network will use the most recent single-cell and tissue genomics techniques, merging them with more traditional disciplines. EvoCELL has an ambitious training programme, also in the non-academic sector. Scientific outreach and communication of the project results to a wider public are a fundamental part of the project and all fellows will contribute to it.

The Early Stage Researchers will enjoy a multi-disciplinary and international environment with plenty of training opportunities and exchange with all labs involved in the Network.

Contracts will be for 9 to 12 months. The positions will be advertised on our website (https://evocell-itn.eu/) by each partaking Lab who will provide relevant information including specific skills/qualifications, application link and deadline.
