PhD positions in the bio-based industry sector, in Ireland - Talent4BBI (MSCA)

Deadline: 31 January 2022

Talent4BBI is the first industry led PhD MSCA programme in Ireland, managed by BiOrbic, the Bioeconomy SFI Research Centre located in University College Dublin (UCD). The programme brings together a pan-European network of 10 industry and 8 academic partners across 8 Member States and 1 Associated Country. Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) will be located in Ireland, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden, Netherlands and Belgium.

The primary aim of Talent4BBI is to train a cohort of 11 highly skilled industry-ready ESRs equipped to lead the future of the European bio-based industry sector.

This programme provides a unique opportunity for the ESRs to develop key skills, competencies and experience required by the bio-based industries through a targeted training programme for future bioeconomy leaders.

During the 60-month programme duration, the 11 ESRs will undertake 48 month PhDs co-hosted by industry and academia. Three additional industry partners will actively participate and contribute their expertise through summer and winter school training events.

The programme structure offers a unique opportunity for graduates to thrive in both industrial and academic research settings while also enhancing the ESR’s career opportunities in line with the MSCA COFUND work programme objectives. Talent4BBI’s selection process will be guided by principles of openness, transparency, merit, impartiality, and equality for the ESRs.

Talent4BBI will also leverage the expertise of biotechnology leaders Biopolis, Novamont and key EU bioeconomy consortium BIC as training partners (contributing in-kind). Talent4BBI’s 7 academic institutions are all in the top 200 universities in the world, according to the QS ranking body 2021. Four universities (Leuven, EPFL, Wageningen, Groningen) are in the top 100 in the Times Higher Education 2021 rankings. Chalmers maintains the highest reputation in Sweden. In 2019, Wageningen University secured first place in the QS subject rankings for “Agriculture and Forestry” for the fourth consecutive year; BiOrbic Bioeconomy Research Centre is Ireland’s national centre for bioeconomy research; and the Blank Lab in Aachen is an innovator in the use of microbes for the benefit of the environment, society and the economy.

All applicants must be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree, as per MSCA COFUND ESR definition. If your host institution requires it, applicants must hold an MSc. This can be checked directly on the university’s website side under entry requirements for PhD.

Deadline: 31 January 2022
