How to apply

Open RADSAGA application process

We will be recruiting 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), each be hired by one of the network beneficiaries and will participate in interdisciplinary and intersectoral secondments in other network parterns. Apply! 

RADSAGA offers an attractive remuneration under employment contract for 36 months. In accordance with the European Commission's allowances for ITNs, there is an additional training allowance to cover training activities, conference attendance, etc.

The challenge

With the increasing complexity of electronics and electronic systems, studies on the effect of radiation are gaining ground in sectors including aviation, the automotive industry and medicine. There is a strong demand for dedicated design and qualification guidelines, as well as for skilled professionals specializing in radiation effects.

RADSAGA will bring together industry, universities, laboratories and test-facilities in order to deepen our knowledge of radiation effects and to train young scientists and engineers in all aspects related to electronics exposed to radiation.

RADSAGA has four main research and development areas:

  • Experimental facility dosimetry aspects, focusing on emerging experimental techniques and radiation effects;
  • Development and qualification of state-of-the-art components and radiation hardening aspects;
  • Radiation qualification solutions at a system level;
  • Guidelines for facility dosimetry, emerging effects at component level, and system qualification.

Eligibility conditions

ESRs must, at the time of recruitment

  • (i) be in possession of a university degree, and (ii) have a maximum of four years of full-time research experience, including any period of research training, after obtaining the degree which formally allowed them to embark on a doctorate in the country in which the degree/diploma was obtained or in the host country (irrespective of whether or not a doctorate was envisaged).
  • ESRs cannot be PhD holders at the start of their employment contract.
  • The European Commission's mobility rules state: At the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date. Short stays such as holidays and/or compulsory national service are not taken into account. Applicants for CERN positions cannot have been at CERN for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.
  • Proficiency in English is required; training in other languages can be provided through the ITN's training budget.
