Methods in Research on Research : Call for applications - Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship

MiRoR is recruiting 15 PhD students to be trained to become top level scientists who will transform clinical research and improve public health.

Each recruited PhD student will be offered a 3-year Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship and be employed full time for three years starting in September or October 2016. PhD students will benefit from a strong and innovative training programme, secondment in academic and non-academic institutions, a joint supervision from academic and non academic researchers.

MIROR is an innovative and ambitious joint doctoral training programme funded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, dedicated to Methods in Research on Research (MIROR) in the field of clinical research.

“Research on Research”, is an emerging new scientific discipline that aims to reduce waste in research and increase research value.

Tens of billions of Euros are wasted each year on studies that are redundant, flawed in their design, never published or poorly reported. The public is the main victim of this waste and reducing waste and increasing value of research represents a major societal challenge. MIROR will train 15 PhD students to become the future generation of high-level scientists to develop innovative methods of Research on Research. The students will be awarded with a double degree.

Applications are open ! Deadline: May 1, 2016
