How to write a Great Research Paper, and Get it Accepted by a Good Journal. By Anthony Newman from Elsevier

Jobs


There are 7 doctoral studentships available for an October 2020 start for MemTrain, a H2020 COFUND ITN focused on membranes at Aston University. They are advertised now but the deadline has been extended to 24th May because of Covid-19 - the links are below and two files attached.  Because it is an MCSA ITN, there is a requirement for mobility and candidates cannot have been in the UK for longer than 12 months in the last 3 years, which precludes most UK-based students. The ideal candidates are therefore recent Masters students from European countries (not UK), although students from other countries who have done a secondment or 1 year Masters degree in the UK should also be eligible. Unfortunately we cannot appoint non-EU nationals because of the overseas fees and limitations on the salary for tier 2 visa requirements. Please could you circulate it in your department or institute, or send it to any current or previous masters students who would like to do a PhD.
