    Several tens of thousands of particle accelerators are in use today with varied applications in research, industry, medicine and other fields . Yet accelerator usage could be much more widespread, were it not limited by cost and size constraints, especially in hospitals, universities and small and medium size companies. This would enable ground-breaking applications and innovations on a much larger scale.

    A possible solution to this bottleneck is the development of more compact – and consequently more cost-efficient – accelerator technologies, a strategy that has been investigated in the past two decades bringing forth plasma accelerators as one of its most promising candidates.

    EuPRAXIA is the first European project that develops a dedicated particle accelerator research infrastructure based on novel plasma acceleration concepts and laser technology. It focuses on the development of electron accelerators and underlying technologies, their user communities, and the exploitation of existing accelerator infrastructures in Europe. It was accepted onto the ESFRI roadmap for strategically important research infrastructures in June 2021 as a European priority.

    To fully exploit the potential of this breakthrough facility, advances are urgently required in plasma and laser R&D, studies into facility design and optimization, along a coordinated push for novel applications. EuPRAXIA-DN is a new MSCA Doctoral Network for a cohort of 12 Fellows (10 Fellows will be funded from the HE-MSCA-DN funds, while 2 Fellows will be funded by the UKRI guarantee funds) between universities, research centers and industry that will carry out an interdisciplinary and cross-sector plasma accelerator research and training program for this new research infrastructure. The network focuses on scientific and technical innovations and on boosting the career prospects of its Fellows.

    Details about each research project and how to apply can now be found on the project home page: https:// www. eupraxia-dn.org

    Benefits

    The EuPRAXIA Doctoral Network (EuPRAXIA-DN) is a new Horizon Europe Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Network (MSCA-DN), funded by the EU and the UKRI Guarantee Fund and offering 12 high level Fellowships between universities, research centers and industry that will carry out an interdisciplinary and cross-sector plasma accelerator research and training program for the new EuPRAXIA research infrastructure.

    The network will develop a range of scientific and technical innovations and provide a cutting-edge interdisciplinary training that is expected to boost the career prospects of its Fellows.

    Eligibility criteria

    Mobility

    Researchers can be of any nationality. They must comply with the rule for mobility.

    Researchers are normally required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up their appointment. One general rule applies to the appointment of researchers in a network:

    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. As far as international European interest organisations or international organisations are concerned, this rule does not apply to the hosting of eligible researchers.However the appointed researcher must not have spent more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference deadline for submission of proposals or recruitment by the host organisation, depending on the action, in the same appointing organisation.

    Selection process

    Applications will be collected by the network coordinator (INFN) and then allocated to the respective host organization which will organize a panel interview. You can indicate in your application if you wish to apply also for other positions within the network and in this case agree to sharing your information with these additional organisations.

    Offer Requirements
  • REQUIRED EDUCATION LEVEL
  • Physics: Master Degree or equivalent

    Engineering: Master Degree or equivalent

  • REQUIRED LANGUAGES
  • ENGLISH: Good

    Skills/Qualifications

    We are looking for dynamic, pro-active students who ideally have gained already hands-on experience in laboratory-based studies. Good analytical skills and an understanding of the fundamental concepts behind plasma wakefield accelerators will be important. A background in accelerator or laser R&D will be an asset, however, comprehensive training in all relevant areas will be provided.
