Fellowships

ECRA occasionally offers young scientists the opportunity to participate in and contribute to state-of-the-art research on the production and application of hydraulic binders. These fellowships are granted to graduate and postgraduate scientists for research on clinker and cement production and on the use of cement in concrete. The research sponsored under the fellowship must be undertaken mainly at ECRA’s premises in Duesseldorf, Germany. The monthly stipend will be between 1000 and 2000 EUR, with possible exceptions in special cases. The length of tenure is up to two years. An extension is possible on request, depending on the progress of the project in question.

 

Applicants are invited to us send their C.V. and a short proposal for the project they would like to work on. The proposal should indicate the relevance of the project for the cement and construction materials industry. Potential cooperation with universities or other research institutions should be mentioned.

 

Applications from scientists willing to carry out projects in the context of ECRA’s current research are particularly welcome. For example, ECRA has an interest in the development of an overview which summarises all potential utilisation of CO2. This uitilisation should include all conceivable processes, independent of the utilisation rate, its market relevance or its energy demand. ECRA believes that the outcome of such a study will facilitate a discussion about if and how CO2 might potentially be used, even if some processes might be regarded as visionary from today’s point of view.

 

Applications must be submitted in writing in English or in German to following address:
