General Information

TranSVIR has been appointing Marie Curie Fellowships - eleven Early Stage Researchers (ESR) to PhD studentships and one Experienced Researcher (ER) to a post-doctoral fellowship. The Fellowships provide an exceptional opportunity to work abroad whilst retaining mentoring at home. In addition to the regular salary, the Fellows receive a mobility allowance to compensate for the additional expense of living abroad and a travel allowance to fund trips home.

TranSVIR is funded under the Marie Curie Mobility Program designed to promote movement of researchers in Europe and so is open to citizens from any country in the world other than the host country provided they have not worked there for more than 12 months in the previous three years.

TranSVIR pursues a policy of equal opportunities on matters of gender and disability and will seek to recruit an equal proportion of male and female applicants and will provide employment opportunities for candidates with disabilities. Where applications of equal quality are received, preference will be given to female candidates as part of a strategy designed to recruit equal numbers of men and women to the TranSVIR posts. Employment procedures and contracts will conform to the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

The TranSVIR training programme offers:

  • Specific research training by PhD studentships in a specific aspect of vascular inflammation or remodelling in an internationally recognized laboratory  supervised by an experienced mentor.
  • Complementary training in translational science provided by the TranSVIR Network through Meetings, Workshops and Summer Schools.
  • The opportunity to work in another European Country and to join a cohesive international network of researchers in Academia and Industry across Europe

There are four components to the personal remuneration for Marie Curie Fellows: 

  • A monthly living allowance from which employers contributions to National Insurance etc. can be deducted.
  • A monthly mobility allowance to compensate for the additional expense of living away from one´s own country. This is higher for those with families which are defined as persons linked to the researcher by (i) marriage, or (ii) a relationship with equivalent status to a marriage, or (iii) with dependent children. The mobility allowance is tax free in many countries.
  • A yearly travel allowance to enable the Fellow to visit their home country. The amount of the travel allowance is based on the distance between the place of work and the home country.
  • A single career exploratory allowance of EUR 2,000 for all Fellows employed for over 12 months than can be used for any purpose that promotes the researcher´s career development.
