A Marie Curie Experienced Researcher position is available under the 7th Framework of EU-FP7 program in the GASMENS Project. The researcher position is within the Stokes Institute, Ireland.

The Stokes Institute, which is located on the University of Limerick campus, currently has a compliment of over 30 full-time PhD researchers and 15 post-doctoral fellows. The group was formed in 1990 and was initially focused on gas turbine flows and heat transfer in electronic systems. It has since grown, to include all significant issues in microscale flows, electronic systems reliability, biofluidics and aerospace heat transfer. The Institute is now a multidisciplinary, multinational group of scientists and engineers working in close collaboration with many industries, hospitals and government organisations.

Description of GASMENS Project:
GASMEMS is an international training network for young researchers in the field of rarefied gas flows in Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS). The GASMEMS network has been built from several existing collaborations within bilateral programmes, from scientific collaborations and national networks with certain objectives. To achieve these objectives, 15 PhD students and 5 Postdoctoral researchers will be recruited in the framework of this network of 17 European laboratories and industrial partners. Individual career development plans, mobility, the requirement for every participant researcher to acquire a minimum knowledge in modelling, simulation, experimental techniques and MEMS manufacturing, in addition to their project specialisation and Network-wide workshops will ensure that each researcher receives exposure to, and benefits from, the full expertise of the Network.

Experienced Researcher Salary:
€46,851 p.a. (Mobility and travel allowances may also apply, in line with the terms of the Marie Curie Grant Agreement).
Annual mobility allowance: €6,798 for a researcher without family obligations to €10,876 for a researcher with family obligations.
