The University of Padova (Italy) is seeking outstanding PIs from all over the world to leverage successful applications for the next ERC Starting Grant call funded by EC Framework program H2020 with an expected deadline in October 2017.

The ERC Starting Grants are open to researchers of any age and nationality with 2-7 years of experience since completion of PhD, a scientific track record showing great promise and an excellent research proposal. This program aims to support talented early-career scientists who have already produced excellent supervised work, are ready to work independently and show potential to be a research leader. Applications can be made in any field of research, which make the University of Padova, and its 32 Research Departments, very attractive for scholars of all disciplines.

We offer

  • Best employment conditions: PIs funded by the ERC hosted by University of Padova will be offered a tenure track position as “Associate Professor” (in compliance with the Italian Law) and competitive fringe benefits
  • Unique opportunity to work side-by-side with excellent research groups (28 ERC projects)
  • Innovative/first class Research Facilities
