The MSCA CORE network welcomes expressions of interest from post-doctoral researchers who wish to apply for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship and will provide support in developing their proposal. (deadline for expressions of interest 30 June 2017, closing date 14 September 2017).
The fellowships will enable successful future Marie SkłodowskaCurie fellows to be hosted by a partner within the network for a period of 12 -24 months to undertake world-class research, career development and knowledge transfer. If successful, the fellowship will provide a generous salary and an allocation for research and training costs.
The CORE network is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN). Partners are international centres of excellence in their field, the academic partners having outstanding records of publications in their research fields, and the industrial partners being at the forefront of product innovation and commercialization in their specific field of activity. We would be interested in supporting Fellowships from across our research portfolio organised within three broad themes:
Partners in the network include – University of Strathclyde (Scotland, UK), Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg (Germany), University of Rouen (France), Radboud University Nijmegen (Netherlands), ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich) (Switzerland), University of Manchester (England, UK), Friedrich - Alexander University Erlangen - Nürnberg, (Germany) and Syncom (Netherlands) The partners can facilitate secondments within the network as part of the proposal.

Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern - How Can the Enantiomers of a Chiral Molecule be Separated More Effectively?
Chiral molecules are molecules that behave as image and mirror image to each other; these are also called enantiomers. There is a demand in pure enantiomers, which can be created for the use of a variety of industries, such as drugs for the pharmaceutical industry or herbicides for agrochemistry. ANDREAS SEIDEL-MORGENSTERN and his research team investigate access to these pure enantiomers. .... more
