Below are opportunities to join us in the new research center (please see details of center on our preliminary website). The early career fellowships deadline is closed and the candidates are being shortlisted and so on. The PhD deadline has also closed for now but we will hopefully be able to issue another call, subject to funding. Anyone who wishes to come here as a PhD student or postdoc should contact firstname.lastname@example.org and attach their CV and also a cover letter or an email outlining their idea. As listed below, there are a number of external funding options and other positions will emerge depending on funding. Also, feel free to submit your CV if you are interested in part-time paid RA work. This emerges again on an occasional basis, depending on funding and is particularly suited for PhD students looking to supplement their income.
