Early Stage Researcher Internships
The Early Stage Researchers (ESR) Internships program aims to offer a unique opportunity to researchers to gain a significant range of experiences and valuable new skills by a stay in the GEOLAB facilities during their experiment programs (Transnational Access Projects (TA)). These internships will also provide unique networking opportunities and broaden the number of ESRs who can participate in GEOLAB activities and learn from the experience within the community and will provide a better understanding of the ins and outs of the GEOLAB installations throughout Europe.
According to the European Commission (EC), “Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) are considered individuals in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree. Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when the researcher obtained the degree entitling him or her to embark on a doctorate, (either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited) even if a doctorate was never started or envisaged. Part-time research experience will be counted pro-rata.”
The applicants can choose the facility where they are interested to stay during the internship program. GEOLAB will provide information relative to the experiments that are planned to be performed in the different facilities. A calendar with the dates during which the tests are scheduled to take place will also be included on the GEOLAB website.
