The below announcement concerns a PhD opening at the University of
Groningen. Would you please forward this to any/all persons you think might
be interested?

PhD topic: "Understanding the emergence of connectivity science in practice"

This opening/award is part of a newly funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie
Innovative Training Network (ITN) project, entitled the i-CONN project (see ). The i-CONN
project consists of 10 Universities and three partner organizations across
Europe and brings together scientists from Social Science, Astrophysics,
Computer Science, Ecology, Geomorphology, Hydrology, Neuroscience, and
Systems Biology.

This particular studentship pertains to social networks and
interdisciplinary learning, with practical applications to other empirical
contexts found in the i-CONN network (e.g. physical, ecological, or coupled
systems/networks). The student will be housed in the Faculty of Spatial
Sciences, at the University of Groningen, but will also have secondments in
other participating universities (e.g. Durham).

Just a note:
Even though this is funded by the European Commission, *researchers of **any
nationality** within the first four years of their career *can be recruited
to an ITN
 (e.g. students completing their Masters, typically, who do not already
have a PhD) .
