Call for Interest for Grantholders at the Institute for Environment and Sustainability

THE CALL IS OPEN - Next cut-off: 28th February 2010 at 12:00 a.m. (Milan time)

Located in Ispra (Italy), the Institute for Environment and Sustainability is one of
the seven institutes that constitute the Joint Research Centre of the European
Commission.

In line with the JRC mission, the aim of IES is to provide scientific and technical
support to the European Union strategies for the protection of the environment
contributing to a sustainable development. IES works in close collaboration with
official laboratories, research centres and industries of the EU's Member States,
creating a bridge between the EU's policies and the European citizen.

The combination of complementary expertise in the fields of experimental sciences,
modelling and remote sensing put the IES in a strong position to contribute to the
implementation of the European Research Area and to the achievement of a sustainable
development.

Being structured in six scientific
Units<http://ies.jrc.ec.europa.eu/Job-opportunities/open-calls/units&gt;, the Institute
at present is engaged within seven main fields of activity:

- Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development

- Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation

- Environmental Risks and Natural Hazards

- Sustainable transport and Air Quality

- Environmental Dimension of Development Co-operation

- Environmental Monitoring and Information Systems: GMES and INSPIRE

In order to increase and reinforce its capacity, and in order to encourage researcher
to enhance their experience in an international, multicultural and multidisciplinary
environment, the Institute for Environment and Sustainability is launching a call for
interest for Grantholders for Doctoral, Post-doctoral and Senior Research Positions.

ACCOMODATION

The JRC Ispra site offers all Ispra site personnel and prospective personnel support
to help them find accommodation. All new grantholders, regardless of nationality,
have the possibility of requesting a furnished flat which they may rent for a period
of maximum 12 months. The JRC Ispra manages some furnished flats located 5 minutes
walk away from the JRC main entrance. They are intended to provide interim accommodation.

In case of selection, we will provide the request form to be sent to the JRC WELCOME
DESK. A request for a flat does not guarantee that you will be allocated one. It is
not uncommon that demand exceeds the number of available lodgings. In this case or
for further information please contact the JRC Welcome Desk to analyse other
alternatives.
