My good friend Martin Trybus from the University of Birmingham is looking for a Ph.D candidate for his EU-funded Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (ITN) on transatlantic trade and investment. Here's the low down:
"The ESR will work within Birmingham Law School and enrol for a 3-year PhD programme under the supervision of Professor Martin Trybus. The research project has the provisional title “Towards a Transatlantic Public Procurement Market” (details to be agreed between ESR and supervisor).
The objective of the ITN is to foster interdisciplinary research into transatlantic trade and investment. The network will have 15 ESRs at 11 different partners across Europe. The ESR will benefit from a wide-ranging training programme consisting of Advanced Training Courses and topical conferences organised by ITN partners across Europe. The ESR will contribute to ambitious and carefully planned research, outreach, impact and dissemination activities benefiting from the expertise of world-leading senior academics. Planned secondments (to be confirmed) include the University of Turin (work with co-supervisor Professor Roberto Caranta), George Washington University in Washington DC, the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organisation in Turin, Baker McKenzie in Berlin, and CEPS in Brussels."
This is a great opportunity for those of you wanting to do a Ph.D in procurement. Martin is great to work with and so is Roberto Caranta, both of which I can vouch for having known and worked with them over the last 6 years on the European Procurement Law Group.
