Recruitment in progress!!

Thirteen PhD positions offered by the H2020 MSCA-ITN AntiHelix to study human genome maintenance DNA helicases, to begin in February/March 2020. The offered positions will all last three years and will allow all the recruited researchers to be enrolled in local PhD schools and to participate in an exciting multidisciplinary research programme that will enhance their career perspectives in both the academic and non-academic sector. In addition to their individual projects, all ESRs will benefit from a dedicated training programme consisting of local and network-wide training activities aimed at improving their scientific knowledge and transferable skills. https://euraxess.ec.europa.eu/jobs/450137
