Supported and co-funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND Programme and other 42 partners, the University of Deusto (UDEUSTO) provides 16 three-years positions offered in two calls: first to be launched in February 2016 and second in February 2017.

The Deusto International Research School (DIRS) aims at attracting qualified international Early Stage Researchers for high quality PhD training. The aim of the programme is to increase the international, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility of researchers, in line with the principles set out in the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers and with the EU Principles for Innovative Doctoral Training. Selected researchers will enrol in an attractive and highly internationalised, interdisciplinar and intersectoral research and training ecosystem.

Selected candidates will enrol in one of the seven existing doctoral programmes around four research foci: Health and Wellbeing; Human Rights, Peace and Conflict Resolution; Sustainable Development and Innovation; and Education and Lifelong Learning. Furthermore, the programme will provide transnational and cross-sectoral mobility opportunities as well. Besides, the wide set of academic and non-academic partners institutions participating in the project will provide hosting and secondment opportunities to be decided with PhD tutor and set in the Personal Career Development Plan and training in research and T-shaped skills. 

Following high quality European Commission’s requirements, the candidates will be selected via an open, transparent, merit-based, impartial, equitable and internationally advertised procedure, in order to avoid any kind of inequality or discrimination, guarantying a fair selection process.

Regarding terms and conditions, the selected candidates will sign an employment contract and they will benefit from a shared supervision and mentoring process formally inscribed in the Doctoral Agreement and the individualized Personal Career Development Plan.


This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement Nº 665959. In addition, a number of institutions back and co-finance this project.
