ESPON will extend the deadline for their call for tender for Senior Scientific Quality Management until 7 November.

The call is for a maximum of EUR 300,000 for three years.

This post of Chief Scientist can be shared over multiple people. It does not necessarily require a full-time commitment (although quite a bit more than half-time) or having to move to Luxembourg. It will require multiple meetings in Luxembourg, Brussels and elsewhere.

ESPON is looking for a candidate(s) with a distinguished track record in the range of research fields that ESPON covers (regional and urban development, transport, spatial planning, demography, foresight, climate change…).

The role of this person is to help shape the specifications for the calls for tender and oversee the implementation of these contracts to ensure a high quality result.

It would help if this person has experience translating research to policy and back.

We think this is an extremely interesting opportunity.  Interested?  APPLY NOW
