Dear All,
Please forward the announcement below to anyone who might be interested in a 
PhD exploring social science aspects of the circular economy. Closing date is 
28th March.
Thanks very much,
Pauline Deutz.

Circular Economy: Sustainability implications and guiding progress (‘CRESTING’)
Recruitment of 15 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early Stage Researchers
CRESTING is a Marie Skłodowska Curie (MSCA) Innovative Training Network funded 
by the European Commission (2018-2021). The network comprises a 
transdisciplinary consortium of universities, government, industry and NGOs 
located in six European countries (Austria, England, France, Italy, Portugal 
and The Netherlands), China, Nigeria and Taiwan.
The purpose of CRESTING is to train 15 Early Stage Research (ESR) Fellows in 
innovative, transdisciplinary and transformative approaches to understanding 
the implications and facilitating the development of a circular economy (one in 
which maximum value is extracted from resources and minimum waste generated).  
The 15 Early Stage Researcher vacancies are now open for applications.
In addition to engaging in a series of collaborative research and training 
activities, recruited ESRs will be supported in pursuing a doctoral study 
project. If you are highly motivated, inspired by learning and undertaking 
innovative research into the sustainability implications of a circular economy, 
then one of these ESR vacancies could be the ideal appointment for you.  Each 
ESR has an international and interdisciplinary supervisory team, also including 
a non-academic partner.  ESRs will spend time at their co-supervising 
University, as well as on secondment with another partner institution. CRESTING 
therefore provides an outstanding opportunity to gain knowledge, experience and 
build a personal network across different countries, academic fields and 
employment sectors relating to the circular economy.
For further information on the CRESTING project, eligibility, application 
procedure and list of all 15 Early Stage Researcher posts available across the 
hosting institutions, please see here<http://cresting.hull.ac.uk/>.
In order to be eligible to apply for these posts applicants must meet the 
following criteria:

  *   Applicants MUST – at the start date of the employment contract– be an 
‘early stage researcher’: they must be in the first four years of their 
research career and NOT have a doctoral degree.
  *   At the time of appointment applicants MUST NOT have resided in or carried 
out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting 
host institution for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to 
their recruitment. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.
  *   Excellent English language proficiency is required (minimum of IELTS 
score of 6.5 overall, 6 in all areas).
The employment contracts are fixed term for 36-months, beginning June 2018. The 
ESRs will be employed with normal social security coverage by the host 
institutions and will have all benefits provided for in the MSCA-ITN early 
career fellowship regulations, including a highly competitive remuneration, 
living allowances and mobility expenses.  Successful applicants will be 
enrolled for doctoral study at no additional cost.
