Recruitment

DARE wordmark

Applications are now invited for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in a new Marie Curie Network focused on the rights of persons with disabilities. The DARE network (Disability Advocacy Research in Europe) will recruit fifteen ESRs working on different topics related to disability rights, to be based in eight universities and non-governmental organisations across Europe, each working towards completion of a PhD. This is an exciting, interdisciplinary research network, where ESRs will receive training in law, disability studies, public and social policy and related disciplines, as well as opportunities to put their skills into practice through secondment opportunities at a wide range of partner organisations. The goal of this network is to provide opportunities for the next generation of disability rights researchers - who will support the further development, implementation and monitoring of the human rights set out in the United Nations  Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Information on each of the 15 different research positions, the hosting organisations and awarding institutions for the PhD, is available below. A detailed application guide is now available: DARE Application Guide
