This pages summarizes the career development and training components of MWGaiaDN.
All Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) are enrolled in a PhD programme at their host institute.
Each ESR will have a Personal Career Development Plan (PCDP) against which they will be able to track their progress.
The host institute provides the primary supervisor(s) for the ESRs, whilst secondary mentors are based at one of the partner nodes. The ESR supervisor(s) will work with the ESR in drawing up their PCDP, and provide regular monitoring and guidance to their ESR.
The PCDPs will be reviewed annually by the Doctoral Training committee (DTC, see below) to allow for regular formal monitoring of the progress of the ESRs. This will ensure that the ESR is able to progress; any issues or problems can be identified and corrected at an early stage. Each ESR will be able to make full use of the career development support offered through their host institutions and they are able to call for further support through the Doctoral Network.
Doctoral Training Committee (DTC)
The DTC is responsible for network wide oversight of the training programme, and will review progress of each student against their personal career development plan. The supervision offered at all beneficiaries follows the MSCA guidelines on supervision.
The members of the DTC are:
- Anthony Brown (University Leiden, WP1 leader and Project coordinator)
- Mercè Romero-Gómez (University Barcelona, WP2 leader)
- Carine Babusiaux (University Grenoble Alps, WP3 leader)
- Antonella Vallenari (INAF, WP4 leader)
- David Hobbs (University Lund, WP5 leader)
- Nicolas Walton (University Cambridge, WP6 leader)
- Frédéric Arenou (Observatory Paris-Meudon)
- Paolo D’Arrigo (Airbus Defence and Space)
