Innovative Nanowire DEvicE Design: INDEED

Now recruiting!

The INDEED network has 15 vacancies for highly talented Marie Curie Research Fellows (Early Stage Researchers - ESRs). Our ESRs will be enrolled on a PhD programme which is supported by a unique training package that provides direct experience of industry, nanotechnology, innovative design methods and interdisciplinary scientific techniques. Regular workshops will be held for the development of transferable skills and to facilitate the exchange of ideas between ESRs. A very attractive salary and benefits package is offered to successful applicants (see Current Vacancies for details).

The INDEED Network project

The INDEED network is a €4 million Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions– Innovative Training Network (ITN) – project funded by the European Commission, under the H2020 program and coordinated by Durham University. INDEED is a consortium of 11 Universities and 2 industrial companies, together with 13 associate industry partners across Europe. The main scientific objective is to translate semiconductor nanowire (NW) technology concepts into market-ready products. As such, the scientific programme is directed towards customer-oriented R&D and exploits innovative industrial design techniques to ensure rapid translation of the basic technologies into commercial devices.
