Who can apply?

Anyone registered for a PhD in experimental or theoretical particle physics whose current research would benefit from a short period of integration into the MCnet Marie Curie Research Training Network.

Applicants should fulfill the requirements to be a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher: the precise definition can be found here but, in brief: applicants must not hold a PhD and must be less than four years after receiving the degree that entitled them to start a PhD (usually a Diplom or Masters). They are open to all nationalities and are subject to the Marie Curie rules on mobility: again the precise rules are here but, in brief: applicants must be moving country to take up the appointment and must not have spent more than 12 of the last 36 months resident in the country of the receiving institution – for these purposes CERN is considered to be a country of its own and is therefore open to Swiss and French residents.
