Research with neutrons, with its interdisciplinary approach, is indispensable for modern science. Taking into consideration tremendous changes in the European neutron landscape and assuming responsibility for sustainability, the neutron community is nowadays facing an important task to ensure long-term perspectives, that essentially depend on its ability to create a new generation of innovative highly-skilled researchers. To tackle this challenge, Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ), Technical University Munich (TUM) and Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon (Hereon), partners at the Heinz-Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ), are running the Marie-Skłodowska Curie Acton (MSCA) COFUND project “Global Neutron Scientists” (GNeuS) https://GNeuS.eu that trains young neutron scientists through the establishment of a well-structured post-doctoral research programme with a strong interdisciplinary and intersectoral approach and global outreach. Within GNeuS, Post-Doc grants are offered to solving the grand challenges facing mankind in areas such as environment, energy, key technologies and life science as well as improving the existing instrumentation and the ancillary equipments and developing new sources or optimizing the existing ones. During the 5-year project lifetime and 3 calls, the 3 MLZ Partners offer a total of 45 fellowships each with a duration of 24 months.
