Apologies for multiple posting!

Please, pass the information to whom may be interested. Thanks.

----------------------

3 research positions may be available starting in the academic year 2006-2007 in the Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics at Rovira i Virgili University (Tarragona, Spain).

The web site of the host institute is:

http://www.grlmc.com

ELIGIBLE TOPICS

- Language and automata theory and its applications.
- Biomolecular computing and nanotechnology.
- Bioinformatics.
- Language and speech technologies.
- Formal theories of language acquisition and evolutionary linguistics.
- Computational neuroscience.

Other related fields might still be eligible provided there are strong enough candidates for them.

The scheme, which is funded by the European Commission, is highly competitive (with 5-10% of success rate last time). It includes 3 streams (IE, II, OI), which are described below.

--------------------------------------------

IE

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

It aims at providing advanced training tailored to the researchers' individual needs with a view to adding different/complementary scientific competencies. This in order to allow them to reach or reinforce a position of professional maturity and independence or to permit them to resume their career. The duration is between 1 and 2 years. Applicant researchers should be from EU or Associated States with at least 4 years research experience or a PhD and willing to spend a mobility period working in a host institution located in another EU or Associated State, different from his/her own and from that where they have been recently active.

JOB PROFILE
 
- The position is intended to develop an advanced training + research project in collaboration with the host institute for 12-24 months. As well, some doctoral teaching and supervising is expected.
- It will be filled in under the form of a work contract.
- There is no restriction on the candidate's age.
- Though there is no particular preference, candidates in the first decade of their research career are encouraged to apply.

ELIGIBILITY CONDITIONS
 
- Having got or being about to get a PhD degree by September 19, 2006 at the latest.
- Being national of any of the 25 EU Member States, or of the 4 EU Associated Candidate States (Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania, Turkey), or of the 5 EU Associated States (Iceland, Israel, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland), who has not resided and carried out her/his main activity in Spain for more than 12 months in the last 3 years (reference date: January 19, 2006).
- Nationals from third countries that have resided and carried out their main activity in any EU Member State or Associated State for at least 4 of the last 5 years (reference date: January 19, 2006) are eligible, too.
- Spaniards are ineligible unless they have resided and carried out their main activity in a third country for at least 4 of the last 5 years (reference date: January 19, 2006).

ECONOMIC CONDITIONS
 
- A generous monthly living allowance depending on the researcher's experience, family situation, and sort of project (lab or non-lab), plus a travel allowance, a mobility allowance, and a contribution to other expenses (for instance, conference participation).
- Health coverage will be provided by the Spanish public Social Security system.
- Candidates from developing countries or emerging/transition economies will be eligible later for a reintegration grant in their home country for half the time they spent in Spain.

EVALUATION PROCEDURE

It will consist of 2 steps:

- a pre-selection based on CV and carried out by the host institute,
- an on-line application to be assessed externally by the funding agency.

SCHEDULE

Expressions of interest are welcome until December 31st, 2005. They should contain the researcher's CV and mention "2005-14-IE" in the subject line. The outcome of the preselection will be reported immediately after.

Pre-selected candidates will be guided and supported in the application process by the host institute. The deadline for completing the whole process is January 19, 2006.

II

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

It aims at attracting top-class researchers from third countries to work and undertake research training in Europe from 1 to 2 years (incoming phase), with a view to developing mutually-beneficial research cooperation. In the case of emerging and transition economies and developing countries, the scheme may assist fellows to return to their country of origin for, typically, half the duration of the first phase (re-integration phase).

JOB PROFILE

- The position is intended to develop an advanced training + research project in collaboration with the host institute for 12-24 months. As well, doctoral teaching and supervising are expected.
- It will be filled in under the form of a work contract.
- There is no restriction on the candidate's age.
- Only experienced (top-class) researchers have a real chance to succeed.

ELIGIBILITY CONDITIONS
 
- Having got or being about to get a PhD degree by September 18, 2006 at the latest.
- Not being national of any of the EU Member States or Associated States.
- Nationals from third countries that have resided and carried out their main activity in any EU Member State or Associated State for at least 4 of the last 5 years (reference date: January 18, 2006) are ineligible.
- Researchers from all other countries are eligible provided they have not spent more than 4 years during the previous 5 years in any of the above-mentioned EU countries.

ECONOMIC CONDITIONS
 
- A generous monthly living allowance depending on the researcher's experience, family situation, and sort of project (lab or non-lab), plus a travel allowance, a mobility allowance, and a contribution to other expenses (for instance, conference participation).
- Health coverage will be provided by the Spanish public Social Security system.
- In the case of researchers from emerging and transition economies and developing countries, the scheme may include additional provision to assist them to return to their country of origin, with typically half the duration of the first phase.

EVALUATION PROCEDURE

It will consist of 2 steps:

- a pre-selection based on CV and carried out by the host institute,
- an on-line application to be assessed externally by the funding agency.

SCHEDULE

Expressions of interest are welcome until December 31st, 2005. They should contain the researcher's CV and mention "2005-14-II" in the subject line. The outcome of the preselection will be reported immediately after.

OI

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

It aims at reinforcing the international dimension of the career of European researchers by giving them the opportunity to be trained in a world-level third country research organisation (from 1 to 2 years), and then to apply the experience gained in a return host institution in a Member State or Associated State (typically half the duration of the first phase). It also aims at responding to the researchers' needs in terms of complementing their training in inter/multi-disciplinary research, research management skills and intersectoral mobility.

JOB PROFILE

- The position is intended to develop first an advanced training + research project in a world-level third country research organisation (not in any of the EU Member States or Associated States) for 12-24 months, and then to apply the experience gained to the host institute for 6-12 months. In the second phase, doctoral teaching and supervising are expected too.
- It will be filled in under the form of a work contract.
- There is no restriction on the candidate's age.

ELIGIBILITY CONDITIONS
