Early Stage Researcher Internship Program

Early Stage Researcher (ESR) Internship Program - Applications Closed.

The applications for GEOLAB’s first Early Stage Researcher (ESR) Internship Program are now open!

GEOLAB will fund 15 researchers (including travel and subsistence) for a 2-week placement at one of the project’s research facilities in the field of subsoil behaviour and interaction with structures and the environment.  

The ESR Internship Program grants the opportunity to researchers to gain significant experiences and have access to unique networking opportunities through their stay at one of GEOLAB project’s facilities. Researchers will gain valuable new skills during their experiment programs (Transnational Access Projects). This will ensure a better understanding of the ins and outs of the GEOLAB installations throughout Europe.

  • Funding for Travel and Subsistence will be covered by the GEOLAB project.
