PhD and postdoc opportunities
We are starting three new projects on the ecology of infections carried by small mammals (use the link to see the project summaries)
We are looking for smart and enthusiastic scientists to join our team for these projects:
PhD-students: We offer a starting grant of one year. Extension may be possible, but we will require each PhD-student to also apply for a competitive PhD-grant from the Flemish Research Foundation FWO.
Postdocs: We can offer a position for a period between 1.5 - 4 years (the projects' salary budget is fixed, but monthly salary costs may vary considerably depending on seniority and, for foreigners, possible tax exemptions). Moreover, there will be opportunities every year to apply for competitive postdoc grants from the Flemish Research Foundation FWO
We are on the outlook for candidates with an interest in population ecology, epidemiology and modelling and who are not afraid to combine field work with diagnostic work in the lab (preferably all this in combination…).
Positions can start from March 2020 or soonest thereafter.
To apply, please send a cv and a brief motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org before 31 January.
