The Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) collaboratory is recruiting Research Fellows to join our adventure. We invite applications for short (3-6 months), long (1-3 years) and core (5 years) Fellows in thematic and white tracks.
The core mission of the CRI is to transform the way to research and acquire, share and co-create knowledge across the life, learning, and digital sciences. We are in the process of building a research collaboratory – up to 60 scientists, postdocs, PhD/master students working closely together on diverse but mutually complementary range of topics. We are guided by UN Sustainable Development Goals towards high-impact work on specific topic combining biomedicine, natural sciences, education, and digital transformation.
We are looking for scientists who thrive in dynamic environments, are inspired and motivated by daily interactions with diverse peers, comfortably mix disciplines, rearrange, straddle field boundaries and wish to* explore uncharted domains*. We expect that our fellows will complement current competencies of the CRI and spark collaborative projects that go beyond the CRI community. We encourage projects and methodologies that can be successfully piloted here but eventually forked, reused, and remixed by others, outside of CRI. Around 20% of the fellow’s’ time should be contributed to cross-CRI activities (research collaborations, teaching, mentorship).
Fellows will benefit from state-of-the-art office and wet lab space (e.g. for systems and synthetic biology research), IT support, as well as the CRI Labs that include: Makerspace, Mobile and Virtual Reality technology, Game design and application, and MOOC/online content development.
Fellows are eligible for research funding but we strongly encourage applications from researchers with independent funding, including grants, sabbatical allowances, and temporary detachment from permanent positions, as only a limited number of salary stipends are available.
Please apply before 31. August 2017.

CRI believes in community diversity as a driving force of excellence and we seek fellows irrespective of their gender, age, culture, national origin, disability, religion or sexual orientation.
