ERC Starting Grant 2018

Cardiff University invites expressions of interest from internal and external post-doctoral researchers interested in submitting an ERC Starting Grant application with Cardiff University as the host organisation.

The European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grants are intended to enable exceptional researchers, between two and seven years from PhD completion, to become fully independent research leaders in a research field of their choice. They are generously funded, prestigious grants, intended for researchers to create or strengthen their own independent research team or, depending on the field, establish their own research programme.

We will provide full support and guidance to develop the applications that we judge to be promising and that fit into one of our research areas.

To register your expression of interest in an ERC Starting Grant with Cardiff University as the host Iinstitution, please complete the following form and attach your completed Expression of Interest template by midnight on 30 June 2017.
