TOBeATPAIN is a EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network.

TOBeATPAIN will train eleven PhD students on how to investigate the underlying mechanisms of pathological pain in neurodegenerative diseases, musculoskeletal conditions and peripheral neuropathies, with the ultimate aim to delineate novel therapeutic strategies.

TOBeATPAIN is structured around two research areas: 1) pathophysiology of pain in neurodegenerative diseases characterised by neuroinflammation, and 2) pathophysiology of neuroinflammation in chronic pain syndromes.

The strong inter-sectoral (5 universities, 3 biotech SMEs, 2 large companies, and 1 non-profit research organisation charity) and the international dimension (four European countries are represented) offers a unique training platform that ensures exposure to different research training environments.

A detailed description of the eleven PhD projects, including compulsory secondments, Supervisors and host organisations, as well as contact persons are available on https://tobeatpain-itn.net/

For more information please contact the TOBeATPAIN co-ordinator Prof. Marzia Malcangio, marzia.malcangio@kcl.ac.uk at the Wolfson Centre for Age-Related Diseases, King’s College London (UK)

Benefits

The researchers will benefit of an employment contract with social security coverage. 

1) Living Allowance: €3,270 per month (€39,240/year). This amount is then adjusted through the application of a country correction coefficient to the living allowance of the country in which the researcher will be recruited.

2) Mobility Allowance: €600 per month

3) Family Allowance: €500 per month will be paid should the researcher have family, regardless of whether the family will move with the researcher or not.

Eligibility criteria

All PhD students recruited in an ITN must be Early-Stage Researchers (ESR). ESR can be of any nationality and age, and they must comply with the LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE and MOBILITY RULE (see below).

LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE: Early-Stage Researchers (= PhD Students) must, at the date of recruitment by the beneficiary, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree. The date of recruitment means the first day of the employment of the researcher for the purposes of the action (i.e. the starting date indicated in the employment contract or equivalent direct contract). Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when the researcher obtained the degree entitling him/her to embark on a doctorate (either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited), even if a doctorate was never started or envisaged.

MOBILITY RULE: researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting beneficiary for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date. Compulsory national service, short stays such as holidays, and time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention are not taken into account.
