What is GNeuS?

GNeuS is a MSCA co-funded programme that will offer a total of 45 fellowships, each for a typical duration of 24 months.

Implementation will be achieved in three recruitment calls (15 fellows recruited per call), organised in November 2021, 2022 and 2023.

The GNeuS programme is specifically created for outstanding researchers with a PhD not older than 6 years or an equivalent 10 years’ FTE research experience.

This new generation of neutron researchers will be educated within GNeuS to be able to meet future challenges offered by neutron technology and to create a broad, united community of neutron experts embracing all scientific disciplines and neutron techniques, enabling them to take full advantage of world-leading facilities such as the ESS in the future.
