I am delighted to announce the opening of the recruitment phase of the in3
project that I am coordinating. Please find details below and at the project
webpage http://estiv.org/in3. If you know anyone interested and eligible,
please let them know.
in3 - An integrated interdisciplinary approach to animal-free nanomaterial and
chemical safety assessment.
The in3 project (grant no. 721975) is a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network
that aims to drive the synergistic development and utilisation of in vitro and
in silico tools for human chemical and nanomaterial (NM) safety assessment. The
project will focus on differentiation of human induced Pluripotent Stem Cells
(hiPSC) to toxicologically relevant target tissues including; brain, lung,
liver and kidney. The tissues, from the same genetic backgrounds, will be
exposed to several compounds and the data generated will be used to develop
safety assessment approaches by integrating cheminformatics, mechanistic
toxicology and biokinetics into computational models. The project will hire 15
PhD students to carry out these activities in a coordinated and highly
collaborative fashion. The scientists trained within in3 will acquire a unique
multidisciplinary skill set giving them a competitive employment advantage in
safety assessment sciences, either in industry, governmental bodies or academia.
The project will run from January 2017 to the end of 2021. Recruitment is open
now and will remain open until all positions are filled. Each of the 15
positions advertised is a 3 year PhD position. Applicants must be Early-Stage
Researchers (ESRs), meaning that they are within the first four years
(full-time equivalent) of their research careers and have not yet been awarded
a doctoral degree (PhD). We expect the first ESRs to commence employment in
March 2017. We aim to have all positions filled by July 2017.
