Eligibility Criteria / Requirements

Early Stage Researchers (ESR)

  • must not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country of the host institution for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment
  • should not possess a PhD
  • should have less than 4 years of research experience. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the research training is provided

Experienced Researchers (ER)

  • must not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country of the host institution for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment
  • either be in the possession of a doctoral degree OR have at least 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience
  • must not have more than 5 years of research experience. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate
