Third Call for applications for SMASH postdoctoral Fellowships

The third call for applications for SMASH postdoctoral Fellowships, co-funded by Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions, is now open! It offers excellent research opportunities that revolve around machine learning and its applications to the fields of climate research, linguistics, precision medicine and fundamental physics.

In this call, SMASH aims to hire 18 fellows who will be hosted in five Slovenian institutions They can also spend up to 1/3 of their 2-years appointments at one of our international academic partners (including top EU centres like Gravitation and Astroparticle Physics at the University of Amsterdam, and world-leading institutions like CERN and UC Berkeley) or at some of the most successful Slovenian companies.

Each 2-year fellowship offers excellent working conditions, access to top infrastructure (including the HPC Vega), substantial research and travel funds and a salary that is significantly higher than local costs of living.

Program The SMASH program values an inclusive culture and believes diversity is the key to success, so SMASH warmly welcomes applicants from underrepresented groups. Note also that SMASH offers a dedicated allowance to support applicants with special needs.

In order to apply, fellows need to contact their desired supervisor who will assist them in preparing short research proposals and provide them with the necessary letters of support from the host institutions.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 101081355. 101081355.

The application deadline is October 21st 2024.
