INCIPIT is a novel international PhD programme, which aims at providing innovative multidisciplinary and intersectoral training in Life and Biomaterial Sciences.
It is co-funded by the COFUND scheme (Marie Skłodowska - Curie Actions).
This programme pools the different and complementary expertise of eight research institutes of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), as well as the competencies of three Doctoral Schools and several academic, non-profit and industrial Partner Organizations.
INCIPT PhD programme will include:
- laboratory activities to carry out doctoral research projects;
- theoretical courses run by the Doctoral Schools of the Università degli Studi della Campania 'Luigi Vanvitelli' (previously named Second University of Naples (SUN)), the University of Naples Federico II and the University of Catania (UNICT);
- activities related to transferable skills.
The INCIPIT overall objective is to recruit and train a total of 35 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), through two Calls for applicants.
The first Call was in 2016 and 15 PhD students were recruited. The second Call for 20 PhD positions is open since 30 January 2017 with the deadline being 30 March 2017.
