SIMaP PhD Positions for International Students at MATHEGRAM ITN 2019/20 Entry

MATHEGRAM is now recruiting 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). Each ESR will work at a beneficiary institute with a 36-month employment contract and will register as a PhD at a University within the MATHEGRAM network or affiliated universities.

Each ESR will also receive additional training at the network level and undergo secondments at academic and/or non-academic MATHEGRAM partners.

MATHEGRAM aims to equip a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative professional research engineers with an open and responsible approach to their research, with interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral (i.e. academic and non-academic) experience.

SIMaP was created in 2007 from the association of three former laboratories of the CNRS (the national centre for science), Grenoble INP (the group of graduate engineering schools) and UGA (the University of Grenoble Alpes). In 2016, the laboratory brings together about 200 collaborators: 60 faculties and researchers, 15 emerita, 42 technical and administrative staff, 80 PhD and postdoc and about 30 trainees from engineer degrees to masters. SIMaP is localized on the « east campus » of Grenoble, on the city of Saint Martin d’Hères and spans over about 6300 m2 of buildings of Grenoble–INP.
