PhD positions available in Belgium, France, Spain, Germany, and Sweden.

Offer Description

NIPU-EJD is formed by a consortium of 15 international research-performing institutions, from both the academic and non-academic sectors.

This consortium is collaborating in the achievement of common scientific / technological objectives and the creation of an innovative doctoral training programme for early-stage researchers (ESRs).

The global vision of NIPU-EJD is to support innovation and entrepreneurship on the development of more sustainable, less hazardous Polyurethane systems that are produced without isocyanates from bio- and CO2-sourced monomers as high-performance alternatives to conventional Polyurethanes in very demanded and emerging applications, such as rigid and flexible foams, coatings, elastomers, adhesives, vitrimers and 3D-printing.

NIPU-EJD will offer to 12 ESRs the opportunity of being awarded with joint or double doctoral degrees from two EU universities.

The 7 participating Universities have excellent reputations in awarding PhDs in Chemical, Polymer and Material Science.

All the ESRs will carry out individual research projects in the realm of NIPUs under a stimulating joint supervision. The main part of the PhD project will be carried out at the recruiting institution.

An academic secondment (12 months) will be spent at the joint or double degree awarding host institution. In addition, NIPU-EJD offers intersectoral secondment opportunities of 3 months in renowned partners organizations to ensure that the ESRs benefit from apply-oriented scientific cooperation and complementary knowledge and skills from industrial prospective.
