Careers and Funding


There are numerous opportunities for travel and research collaboration between Europe, the USA, and Canada. Please note that our dissemination of our information has changed. Every few weeks we send out our Flashnotes where we highlight around 5-10 funding opportunities to support researcher collaboration, exchange, or mobility.

Through the Horizon 2020 Programme, (the main programme for European Union science and innovation funding for the period 2014-2020), researchers in the USA/Canada are eligible to participate in projects, and the number of matched funding in pre-selected areas has gradually expanded over recent years.

For the 2016 calls, please visit the participant portal of Horizon 2020. Please click on Online Manual and on Reference Document for additional insight. The European Commission has recently published a brochure which describes specific opportunities for international cooperation by theme and by country in the Horizon 2020 - Work Programme for 2016-2017. Please click on Brochure to access this information.

ITER is a fusion energy project undertaken in cooperation between the European Union (represented by EURATOM), Japan, the People's Republic of China, India, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation and the USA. The aim of ITER is to show that fusion could be used to generate electrical power, and to gain the necessary data to design and operate the first electricity-producing plant.


The ITER International Organization publishes vacant positions on the ITER Organization website. You are therefore advised to check the website regularly. The place of work is Cadarache (France).


Only nationals from the ITER Parties can apply to the positions published. Persons interested in applying for one of the positions should do so through the contact persons in the ITER Parties. Job applications send directly to ITER will not be taken into consideration.


The primary selection process of candidates for the positions will be carried out by the Parties. After nomination of qualified candidates for these positions, the Parties will present the lists of such candidates to ITER. ITER will then carry out interviews of the candidates in order to make the final selection. For the list of currently available positions, please click here.
