Európska charta a kódex pre výskumných pracovníkov

V roku 2005 Európska komisia prijala Európsku chartu pre výskumných pracovníkov a Kódex správania pre nábor výskumných pracovníkov. Tieto dva dokumenty adresované výskumníkom, ako aj výskumným zamestnávateľom a financujúcim subjektom vo verejnom aj súkromnom sektore sú kľúčovými prvkami politiky EÚ na podporu kariéry výskumných pracovníkov. Podpora kariér výskumníkov v Európe je roztrieštená na miestnej, regionálnej, národnej alebo odvetvovej úrovni a neumožňuje Európe čo najlepšie využiť jej vedecký potenciál. Charta a kódex zabezpečujú, že výskumníci môžu mať rovnaké práva a povinnosti v ktorejkoľvek európskej krajine.

 

Európska charta výskumných pracovníkov je súbor všeobecných zásad a požiadaviek, ktoré špecifikujú úlohy, zodpovednosti a nároky výskumných pracovníkov, ako aj zamestnávateľov a / alebo financujúcich pracovníkov výskumných pracovníkov. Aplikácia do praxe je zodpovednosťou zamestnávateľov, financujúcich organizácií a výskumníkov samotných.

 

Cieľom charty je zabezpečiť, aby povaha vzťahu medzi výskumníkmi a zamestnávateľmi alebo financujúcimi organizáciami prispievala k úspešnému výkonu v oblasti vytvárania, prenosu, zdieľania a šírenia poznatkov a technologického rozvoja a kariérneho rozvoja výskumných pracovníkov. Charta tiež uznáva hodnotu všetkých foriem mobility ako prostriedku na posilnenie profesionálneho rozvoja výskumných pracovníkov. V tomto zmysle charta predstavuje rámec pre výskumných pracovníkov, zamestnávateľov a financujúcich pracovníkov, ktorí ich vyzývajú, aby konali zodpovedne a profesionálne vo svojom pracovnom prostredí, a aby sa navzájom uznávali ako také. Charta sa zaoberá všetkými výskumníkmi v Európskej únii vo všetkých fázach svojej kariéry a pokrýva všetky oblasti výskumu vo verejnom a súkromnom sektore bez ohľadu na povahu menovania alebo zamestnania, právne postavenie svojho zamestnávateľa alebo typ organizácie alebo v ktorom sa práca vykonáva. Zohľadňuje viacero úloh výskumníkov, ktorí sú určení nielen na vykonávanie výskumu a / alebo na realizáciu rozvojových aktivít, ale aj na dohľad, mentoring, riadenie alebo administratívne úlohy.

 

Dokumenty sú k dispozícii vo formáte PDF v sekcii Dokumenty pod názvom „European Charter for Researchers and on a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers“.

 

Pracovné príležitosti pre výskumníkov pribúdajú každý deň. Ich prehľad môžete sledovať na portály EURAXESS.

Všeobecné pravidlá a požiadavky pre otvorený trh pre výskumníkov delíme na dve skupiny.

1. Pravidlá vzťahujúce sa na výskumníkov

Sloboda výskumu

Výskumní pracovníci by mali sústrediť svoj výskum na dobro ľudstva a rozširovať hranice vedeckých poznatkov, pričom by mali slobodu myslenia a prejavu a slobodu určovať metódy, ktorými sa riešia problémy podľa uznávaných etických zásad a praktík. Výskumní pracovníci by však mali uznať obmedzenia tejto slobody, ktoré by mohli vzniknúť v dôsledku konkrétnych výskumných okolností (vrátane dohľadu / usmernenia / riadenia) alebo prevádzkových obmedzení, napr. z rozpočtových dôvodov alebo z dôvodov infraštruktúry, alebo najmä v priemyselnom sektore z dôvodu ochrany duševného vlastníctva. Takéto obmedzenia by však nemali byť v rozpore s uznávanými etickými zásadami a postupmi, ktoré musia výskumníci dodržiavať.

Etické princípy

Výskumní pracovníci by mali dodržiavať uznávané etické postupy a základné etické princípy, ktoré zodpovedajú ich disciplíne, ako aj etickým štandardom, ako sa dokumentuje v rôznych národných, sektorových alebo inštitucionálnych etických kódexoch.

Profesionálna zodpovednosť

 Výskumní pracovníci by mali vyvinúť maximálne úsilie, aby zabezpečili, že ich výskum bude pre spoločnosť dôležitý a nebude duplikovať výskum, ktorý sa predtým uskutočnil inde. Musia sa vyhýbať plagiátorstvu akéhokoľvek druhu a dodržiavať zásadu duševného vlastníctva a spoločného vlastníctva údajov v prípade výskumu vykonávaného v spolupráci s nadriadeným a / alebo inými výskumnými pracovníkmi. Potreba potvrdiť nové pozorovania tým, že sa ukáže, že pokusy sú reprodukovateľné, by sa nemali interpretovať ako plagiátorstvo za predpokladu, že údaje, ktoré majú byť potvrdené, sú výslovne citované. Výskumní pracovníci by mali zabezpečiť, ak je niektorý aspekt ich práce delegovaný, aby osoba, ktorej sú delegované, má právomoc vykonávať ich.

Profesionálny prístup

Výskumní pracovníci by mali byť oboznámení so strategickými cieľmi, ktorými sa riadia ich výskumné prostredie a mechanizmy financovania, a pred začatím výskumu alebo sprístupňovaním poskytnutých zdrojov by mali hľadať všetky potrebné schválenia. Mali by informovať svojich zamestnávateľov, poskytovateľov financovania alebo nadriadeného, keď sa ich výskumný projekt oneskorí, predefinuje alebo dokončí, alebo oznámi, či má byť ukončený skôr alebo pozastavený z akéhokoľvek dôvodu.

Zmluvné a právne záväzky

Výskumní pracovníci na všetkých úrovniach musia byť oboznámení s vnútroštátnymi, sektorovými alebo inštitucionálnymi predpismi upravujúcimi odbornú prípravu a / alebo pracovné podmienky. To zahŕňa predpisy o právach duševného vlastníctva a požiadavky a podmienky akéhokoľvek sponzora alebo donorov, nezávisle od povahy ich zmluvy. Výskumní pracovníci by mali dodržiavať takéto predpisy tým, že poskytnú požadované výsledky (napr. Diplomové práce, publikácie, patenty, správy, vývoj nových produktov atď.), Ako sú uvedené v zmluvných podmienkach alebo v rovnocennom dokumente.

Zodpovednosť

Výskumníci si musia uvedomiť, že sú zodpovední voči svojim zamestnávateľom, sponzorom alebo iným súvisiacim verejným alebo súkromným orgánom, ako aj z etických dôvodov voči spoločnosti ako celku. Najmä výskumní pracovníci financovaní z verejných zdrojov sú zodpovední aj za efektívne využívanie peňazí daňových poplatníkov. Z tohto dôvodu by mali dodržiavať zásady riadneho, transparentného a efektívneho finančného riadenia a spolupracovať so všetkými autorizovanými auditmi svojho výskumu, či už vykonávanými ich zamestnávateľmi / financujúcimi subjektmi alebo etickými výbormi. Metódy zhromažďovania a analýzy, výstupy a prípadne údaje o údajoch by mali byť vždy, keď je to potrebné a podľa požiadaviek príslušných orgánov, otvorené vnútornej a vonkajšej kontrole.

Osvedčené postupy vo výskume

Výskumní pracovníci by mali vždy prijať bezpečné pracovné postupy v súlade s vnútroštátnymi právnymi predpismi vrátane prijatia potrebných bezpečnostných opatrení na ochranu zdravia a bezpečnosti a na obnovu po katastrofách v oblasti informačných technológií, napr. prípravou správnych záložných stratégií. Mali by byť tiež oboznámení so súčasnými vnútroštátnymi právnymi požiadavkami týkajúcimi sa požiadaviek na ochranu údajov a ochranu dôvernosti a mali by podniknúť potrebné kroky na ich neustále plnenie.

Šírenie, využívanie výsledkov

Všetci vedci by mali v súlade so svojimi zmluvnými dojednaniami zabezpečiť, aby sa výsledky ich výskumu šírili a využívali, napr. oznámené, prevedené do iných výskumných prostredí alebo, ak je to vhodné, obchodované. Od hlavných výskumných pracovníkov sa predovšetkým očakáva, že budú mať vedúcu úlohu pri zabezpečovaní toho, aby výskum bol plodný a aby sa výsledky buď komerčne využívali alebo sprístupnili verejnosti (alebo obom) vždy, keď príležitosť vznikne.

Zapojenie verejnosti

Výskumní pracovníci by mali zabezpečiť, aby ich výskumné činnosti boli všeobecne známe spoločnosti takým spôsobom, aby ich mohli pochopiť nešpecialisti, čím by sa zlepšilo pochopenie vedy zo strany verejnosti. Priama spolupráca s verejnosťou pomôže výskumným pracovníkom lepšie pochopiť verejný záujem o priority v oblasti vedy a techniky a tiež obavy verejnosti.

Vzťah s nadriadenými

Výskumní pracovníci vo svojej fáze výcviku by mali vytvoriť štruktúrovaný a pravidelný vzťah so svojimi nadriadenými a zástupcami fakulty / rezortu, aby mohli plne využiť ich vzťah s nimi. Zahŕňa to vedenie záznamov o všetkých pracovných postupoch a výsledkoch výskumu, získanie spätnej väzby prostredníctvom správ a seminárov, uplatňovanie takej spätnej väzby a práca v súlade s dohodnutými harmonogrammi, míľnikmi, výstupmi a / alebo výsledkami výskumu.

Dohľad a riadiace povinnosti

Vedúci výskumní pracovníci by mali venovať osobitnú pozornosť svojej viacstrannej úlohe supervízorov, mentorov, kariérových poradcov, vedúcich pracovníkov, koordinátorov projektov, manažérov alebo vedeckých komunikátorov. Tieto úlohy by mali vykonávať podľa najvyšších odborných štandardov. Pokiaľ ide o ich úlohu supervízorov alebo mentorov výskumných pracovníkov, vedúci výskumní pracovníci by mali vybudovať konštruktívny a pozitívny vzťah s výskumníkmi v počiatočnom štádiu s cieľom vytvoriť podmienky pre efektívny prenos vedomostí a pre ďalší úspešný rozvoj výskumných pracovníkov, kariéry.

Pokračujúci profesionálny rozvoj

Výskumníci vo všetkých štádiách kariéry by sa mali snažiť neustále zlepšovať prostredníctvom pravidelnej aktualizácie a rozširovania svojich zručností a kompetencií. To sa môže dosiahnuť rôznymi spôsobmi vrátane, ale nie výlučne, formálneho školenia, workshopov, konferencií a e-vzdelávania.

 

 

2. Pravidlá vzťahujúce sa na zamestnávateľov a investorov

Uznanie profesie

Všetci vedci zaoberajúci sa výskumnou kariérou by mali byť uznaní za profesionálov a malo by sa s nimi tak aj zaobchádzať. Malo by sa tak začať už hneď na začiatku ich kariéry, a to na úrovni postgraduálneho štúdia, a mali by zahŕňať všetky úrovne bez ohľadu na ich klasifikáciu na národnej úrovni (napr. Zamestnanec, postgraduálny študent, doktorand, postdoktorand, štátni zamestnanci).

Výskumné prostredie

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financovatelia výskumných pracovníkov by mali zabezpečiť, aby sa vytvorilo stimulujúce prostredie výskumu alebo odbornej prípravy v oblasti výskumu, ktoré ponúka vhodné vybavenie, zariadenia a príležitosti vrátane spolupráce na diaľku prostredníctvom výskumných sietí a že vnútroštátne alebo odvetvové nariadenia týkajúce sa zdravia a bezpečnosti vo výskume sú dodržané. Investori by mali zabezpečiť poskytnutie primeraných zdrojov na podporu dohodnutého pracovného programu.

Pracovné podmienky

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financujúce organizácie by mali zabezpečiť, aby pracovné podmienky pre výskumných pracovníkov vrátane výskumných pracovníkov so zdravotným postihnutím v prípade potreby poskytli pružnosť považovanú za nevyhnutnú pre úspešné výsledky výskumu v súlade s existujúcimi vnútroštátnymi právnymi predpismi a s vnútroštátnymi alebo odvetvovými dohodami o kolektívnom vyjednávaní. Mali by sa zameriavať na poskytovanie pracovných podmienok, ktoré umožnia ženám i mužom výskumných pracovníkov spojiť rodinu a prácu, deti a kariéru. Osobitná pozornosť by sa mala venovať okrem iného pružnej pracovnej dobe, práci na čiastočný úväzok, pracovnej dobe a pracovnému voľnu, ako aj potrebným finančným a administratívnym ustanoveniam upravujúcim takéto dojednania.

Stabilita a trvalosť zamestnania

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financujúce organizácie by mali zabezpečiť, aby výkon výskumných pracovníkov nebol narušený nestabilitou pracovných zmlúv, a preto by sa mali čo najviac zaviazať k zlepšeniu stability podmienok zamestnávania výskumných pracovníkov, a tým uplatňovať a dodržiavať zásady a podmienky ustanovené v smernici EÚ o práci na dobu určitú.

Financovanie a platy

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financovatelia výskumných pracovníkov by mali zabezpečiť, aby výskumní pracovníci využívali spravodlivé a atraktívne podmienky financovania a / alebo platy s primeranými a spravodlivými ustanoveniami o sociálnom zabezpečení (vrátane nemocenských a rodičovských dávok, dôchodkových práv a dávok v nezamestnanosti) v súlade s platnými vnútroštátnymi právnymi predpismi as vnútroštátne alebo odvetvové dohody o kolektívnom vyjednávaní. Musí to zahŕňať výskumných pracovníkov vo všetkých fázach kariéry, vrátane výskumných pracovníkov na začiatku štádia, zodpovedajúcich ich právnemu postaveniu, výkonnosti a úrovni kvalifikácie a / alebo zodpovednosti.
Rodová rovnosť
Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financujúce subjekty by sa mali zamerať na reprezentatívnu rodovú rovnováhu na všetkých úrovniach zamestnancov, a to aj na úrovni dohľadu a manažmentu. To by sa malo dosiahnuť na základe politiky rovnosti príležitostí pri nábore a následných kariérnych stupňoch bez toho, aby mali prednosť pred kvalitatívnymi a kompetentnými kritériami. Na zabezpečenie rovnakého zaobchádzania by výberové a hodnotiace výbory mali mať primeranú rodovú rovnováhu.

Rozvoj kariéry

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financovatelia výskumných pracovníkov by mali v rámci svojho riadenia ľudských zdrojov vypracovať osobitnú stratégiu kariérneho rastu pre výskumných pracovníkov vo všetkých fázach svojej kariéry bez ohľadu na ich zmluvnú situáciu vrátane výskumných pracovníkov na dobu určitú. Mala by zahŕňať aj dostupnosť mentorov, ktorí sa podieľajú na poskytovaní podpory a usmernení pre osobný a profesionálny rozvoj výskumných pracovníkov, čím ich motivujú a prispievajú k znižovaniu akejkoľvek bezpečnosti v ich profesionálnej budúcnosti. Všetci vedci by mali byť oboznámení s týmito ustanoveniami a opatreniami.

Hodnota mobility

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo poskytovatelia finančných prostriedkov musia uznať hodnotu geografickej, medzisektorovej, interdisciplinárnej a transdisciplinárnej a virtuálnej mobility, ako aj mobilitu medzi verejným a súkromným sektorom ako dôležitý prostriedok na posilnenie vedeckých poznatkov a profesionálneho rozvoja v ktoromkoľvek štádiu výskumu kariéry. Preto by mali tieto možnosti stavať do špecifickej stratégie kariérneho rastu a plne oceňovať a uznávať akékoľvek skúsenosti s mobilitou v rámci svojho systému kariérneho postupu / hodnotenia. To tiež vyžaduje, aby sa v súlade s vnútroštátnymi právnymi predpismi zaviedli potrebné administratívne nástroje, ktoré umožnia prenosnosť grantov aj ustanovení o sociálnom zabezpečení.

Prístup k odbornému vzdelávaniu a neustálemu rozvoju

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo poskytovatelia finančných prostriedkov by mali zabezpečiť, aby všetci výskumní pracovníci v ktorejkoľvek fáze svojej kariéry, bez ohľadu na ich zmluvnú situáciu, dostali príležitosť na profesionálny rozvoj a zlepšenie ich zamestnateľnosti prostredníctvom prístupu k opatreniam na ďalší rozvoj zručností a kompetencií. Takéto opatrenia by sa mali pravidelne hodnotiť z hľadiska ich dostupnosti, využitia a účinnosti pri zlepšovaní kompetencií, zručností a zamestnateľnosti.

Prístup ku kariérovému poradenstvu

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo poskytovatelia finančných prostriedkov by mali zabezpečiť, aby sa kariérové poradenstvo a pomoc pri umiestňovaní pracovných miest buď v príslušných inštitúciách, alebo prostredníctvom spolupráce s inými štruktúrami ponúkali výskumníkom vo všetkých fázach ich kariéry bez ohľadu na ich zmluvnú situáciu.
Práva duševného vlastníctva
Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financujúce organizácie by mali zabezpečiť, aby výskumníci vo všetkých štádiách kariéry využívali výhody ich výsledkov výskumu a vývoja (ak nejaké) prostredníctvom právnej ochrany a najmä prostredníctvom vhodnej ochrany práv duševného vlastníctva vrátane autorských práv. Politiky a postupy by mali špecifikovať, aké práva patria výskumným pracovníom a / alebo prípadne ich zamestnávateľom alebo iným stranám, vrátane externých obchodných alebo priemyselných organizácií, ako to prípadne vyplýva zo špecifických dohôd o spolupráci alebo iných typov dohôd.

Spoluautorstvo

Spoluautorstvo by mali inštitúcie hodnotiť pozitívne pri hodnotení zamestnancov ako dôkaz konštruktívneho prístupu k vykonávaniu výskumu. Zamestnávatelia a / alebo poskytovatelia finančných prostriedkov by preto mali vypracovať stratégie, postupy a procesy, ktoré poskytnú výskumným pracovníkom vrátane výskumníkov na začiatku ich výskumnej kariéry potrebné rámcové podmienky, aby mohli využívať právo byť uznaní a vymenovaní a / alebo citovaní v kontextu ich skutočných príspevkov ako spoluautorov dokumentov, patentov atď., alebo publikovať svoje vlastné výsledky výskumu nezávisle od svojich nadriadených.
Dozor
Zamestnávatelia a / alebo poskytovatelia finančných prostriedkov by mali zabezpečiť, aby osoba bola jasne identifikovaná, na koho sa výskumní pracovníci v ranom štádiu môžu odvolávať na plnenie svojich pracovných povinností, a mali by o tom informovať výskumných pracovníkov. Takéto opatrenia by mali zabezpečiť, že navrhované orgány dohľadu sú dostatočne odborne zdatné v oblasti dohľadu nad výskumom, majú čas, vedomosti, skúsenosti, odborné znalosti a odhodlanie poskytnúť výskumnému stážistovi primeranú podporu a zabezpečiť potrebné postupy pokroku a preskúmania, ako aj potrebné mechanizmy spätnej väzby.
Výučba
Výučba je základným prostriedkom na štruktúrovanie a disemináciu, a preto by sa mala považovať za hodnotnú voľbu v rámci kariérneho postupu výskumných pracovníkov. Povinnosti v oblasti výučby by však nemali byť neprimerané a nemali by zabraňovať výskumným pracovníkom, najmä na začiatku ich kariéry, pri vykonávaní svojich výskumných činností. Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financujúce organizácie by mali zabezpečiť, aby boli výučbové povinnosti primerane odmeňované a zohľadňované v hodnotení / hodnotiacich systémov a že čas venovaný staršími zamestnancami školeniu začínajúcich výskumných pracovníkov by sa mal počítať ako súčasť ich učiteľského záväzku. Vzdelávacie a koučingové činnosti by mali byť súčasťou odborného vzdelávania výskumných pracovníkov.

Systémy ocenienia / hodnotenia

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo poskytovatelia finančných prostriedkov by mali zaviesť pre všetkých výskumníkov, vrátane vysokoškolských výskumných pracovníkov, systémy hodnotenia / hodnotenia na pravidelné a transparentné hodnotenie ich odbornej výkonnosti nezávislým (a v prípade vedúcich výskumných pracovníkov, prednostne medzinárodný) výbor. Takéto postupy ocenenia a hodnotenia by mali náležite zohľadňovať celkovú výskumnú kreativitu a výsledky výskumu, napr. publikácií, patentov, riadenia výskumu, výučby / prednášok, dohľadu, mentoringu, národnej alebo medzinárodnej spolupráce, administratívnych povinností, činností zameraných na informovanie verejnosti a mobility a mali by sa brať do úvahy v súvislosti s kariérnym postupom.

Sťažnosti / odvolania

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financujúce organizácie výskumných pracovníkov by mali v súlade s vnútroštátnymi predpismi a nariadeniami zaviesť vhodné postupy, pravdepodobne vo forme nestrannej (ombudsmanovej) osoby, ktorá by riešila sťažnosti / odvolania výskumných pracovníkov vrátane tých, ktoré sa týkajú konfliktov medzi školiteľmi a výskumníkmi v rannom štádiu. Takéto postupy by mali poskytovať všetkým výskumným pracovníkom dôvernú a neformálnu pomoc pri riešení konfliktov, sporov a sťažností súvisiacich s prácou s cieľom podporiť čestné a spravodlivé zaobchádzanie v rámci inštitúcie a zlepšiť celkovú kvalitu pracovného prostredia.

Účasť v rozhodovacích orgánoch

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financovatelia výskumných pracovníkov by ju mali považovať za úplne legitímnu a naozaj žiaducu, aby boli výskumní pracovníci zastúpení v príslušných informačných, konzultačných a rozhodovacích orgánoch inštitúcií, pre ktoré pracujú, aby chránili a podporovali ich individuálne a kolektívne záujmy ako profesionáli a aktívne prispievali k fungovaniu inštitúcie.

Nábor pracovníkov

Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financujúce organizácie by mali zabezpečiť, aby boli jasne špecifikované vstupné a prijímacie štandardy pre výskumných pracovníkov, najmä na začiatku ich kariéry, a aby takisto uľahčili prístup znevýhodneným skupinám alebo výskumným pracovníkom, ktorí sa vrátili do výskumnej kariéry vrátane učiteľov akejkoľvek úrovni) vrátiť sa k výskumnej kariére. Zamestnávatelia a / alebo financovatelia výskumných pracovníkov by mali pri vymenúvaní alebo prijímaní výskumných pracovníkov dodržiavať zásady stanovené v Kódexe správania pre nábor výskumných pracovníkov.

Kontaktný formulár EURAXESS - European Commission

Slovenská republika dlhodobo zaostáva za ostatnými krajinami v zapájaní sa do aktivít európskeho výskumného priestoru (ERA), a to najmä do projektov rámcových programov EÚ. Nedostatočná medzinárodná spolupráca má negatívny vplyv na kvalitu národného výskumu. Za tento nelichotivý stav môže viacero faktorov. Medzi najhlavnejšie však patria výška výdajov na výskum a vývoj (porovnanie SR s členskými krajinami EÚ a v rámci OECD) a kvalita vzdelávacieho systému.

 

Centrum vedecko-technických informácií SR sa rozhodlo podporiť medzinárodnú spoluprácu okrem iného aj prostredníctvom vytvorenia siete slovenských výskumníkov pôsobiacich v zahraničí. V rámci projektu SK4ERA je pripravená séria nástrojov, ktoré by mali uľahčiť interakciu s prostredím vedy a inovácií na Slovensku. Využívanie týchto nástrojov zlepší spoluprácu medzi inštitúciami a výskumníkmi v zahraničí.

 

Pilotnou aktivitou je v tomto smere špecializovaná mentoringová schéma SK4ERA, ktorá má zvýšiť účasť Slovenska v rámcovom programe Horizont 2020/ Horizont Európa. Na ňu teraz nadväzujeme vytvorením registra vedcov pôsobiacich v zahraničí - Alumni, ktorý môže poslúžiť aj ako zdroj kontaktov pre honorovaný mentoring riešiteľov projektov. Zároveň sa tak vytvorí databáza potenciálnych rečníkov na podujatiach v Slovenskej republike a v zahraničí, z ktorého budú môcť čerpať ostatné verejné výskumné inštitúcie, univerzity i odborná verejnosť. Hlavným cieľom ALUMNI DATABÁZY, ktorá zoskupuje slovenských vedcov pôsobiacich v zahraničí, je zvýšiť účasť Slovenska v projektoch medzinárodnej spolupráce.

 

Prihlásiť sa do databázy Alumni SK4ERA môžete vyplnením tohto formulára. 

 

Prihlásením do Alumni SK4ERA môžete získať následovné benefity:

  • možnosť poskytovať honorovaný mentoring pre žiadateľov o grant v programe Horizont 2020
  • pool rečníkov na podujatiach organizovaných na pôde CVTI SR alebo v styčnej kancelárii SLORD v Bruseli
  • sprostredkovanie matchmakingu s relevantnými domácimi aktérmi
  • poskytnutie zázemia a priestorov CVTI SR za účelom zorganizovania matchmakingu, alebo iného podujatia

 

A čo si o tejto iniciatíve myslia tí, ktorých sa to týka, teda samotní vedci? Odpovedali nám Viera Kováčová, bio informatička pôsobiaca na Univerzite v Kolíne nad Rýnom, Lucia Bialešová, ktorá pôsobí ako Research Scientist v ATXA Therapeutics Limited a Jana Laláková, In situ seq facility manager v CARTANA. Všetky 3 vedkyne sú súčasne ambasádorkami iniciatívy Žijem vedu.

 

Prečo si myslíte, že Alumni databáza je dôležitá?

 

V.K.: Som bioinformatička, na Slovensku som nikdy neštudovala ani nepracovala. Bioinformatika je bežne vyučovaná na univerzitách v USA od 90. rokov, u nás je ešte stále v plienkach a nie je možné v nej obdržať Mgr., ani PhD, titul. Tzv. big data nám umožňujú učiť sa z minulosti a predikovať budúcnosť, vyriešiť podstatu mnohých ochorení a vystavať podklady pre wet-lab biológov na riešenie hlavných otázok mnohých projektov. Prostredníctvom databázy Alumni som ochotná zdieľať svoje vedomosti a nadväzovať nové profesijné známosti, ako i uvažovať nad spoločným projektom.

L.B.: Databáza Alumni je výborný nápad ako rozšíriť povedomie o vedkyniach a vedcoch pôsobiacich mimo SR a ako zvýšiť ich spoluprácu s domácimi kolegami. Na viacerých univerzitách v zahraničí podobný nástroj bežne funguje. Kontakty z databázy sú využívané na mentoring, couching a na získavanie informácii o akademických podmienkach v prípade záujmu práce/ štúdia na danej univerzite. Osobne si myslím, že je žiadúce a ukáže sa byť prospešné, vytvoriť jednu spoločnú sieť kontaktov aj na Slovenku.

J.L.: V zahraničí žije podľa oficiálnych údajov 300000 Slovákov. Nemáme vôbec predstavu, akú časť predstavujú slovenskí vedci, ktorí vycestovali zo Slovenska za účelom získavania skúsenosti v medzinárodných tímoch. Alumni databáza môže výrazne pomôcť pri získavaní týchto informácii. My vedci často chodíme na konferencie, workshopy a stáže do miest, kde sme nikdy predtým neboli a nikoho tam nepoznáme. Je preto vždy prijemné zistiť, že tam budú aj iní Slováci a len tak sa nezáväzne stretnúť a porozprávať.

 

Je podľa vás mentoring užitočný?

 

L.B.:  Aktívna účasť na mentoringu by mala byť v dnešnej dobe bežnou praxou pre vedcov aj študentov. Ja osobne som ako študentka veľakrát tápala v tom, na koho sa môžem obrátiť a požiadať o pomoc alebo nejakú radu. Počas môjho pôsobenia v Štokholme a neskôr aj v Dubline som sa zúčastnila niekoľkých kariérne zameraných workshopov a vždy som sa stretla s ľuďmi ochotnými so mnou otvorene diskutovať, čo mi pomohlo v mojich ďalších rozhodnutiach.

V.K.: Mentoring som absolvovala v Nemecku v roku 2017. Moja mentorka bola prof. Jane Parker z Inštitútu Maxa Plancka pre výskum šľachtenia rastlín v Kolíne nad Rýnom. Bolo to skvelé. Načerpala som množstvo inšpirácie, prenieslo sa na mňa kvantum entuziazmu od špičkovej vedkyne a dostala som množstvo rád. V rámci všeobecnej časti som sa dozvedela o kultúrnych a povahových rozdieloch rozmanitého spektra spolupracovníkov, príznakoch depresie a clivosti po domove, kariérnych možnostiach a ako balansovať pracovný a osobný život. Veľmi užitočný bol aj „couching“ od lektoriek špecializujúcich sa na body-language, prácu s hlasom, ako prednášať na medzinárodných konferenciách, ako písať granty, ako povedať NIE a ako vyjednávať počas rokovaní o pracovnej zmluve.

J.L.: Mentoring je podľa mňa v dnešnej dobe dôležitý v každej profesii, ale pre vedcov je to nevyhnutnosť. Ja som sa osobne zúčastnila na niekoľkých kurzoch ohľadne písania grantových žiadostí, prezentácie vedeckých výsledkov, vystupovania a komunikácie. Naučila som sa, že nielen obsah, ale aj forma musia byt na top úrovni. Ak sa podobne podujatia začnú vo veľkom organizovať aj na Slovensku, budú mat šancu sa posunúť ďalej nielen jednotlivci, ale cela slovenská veda.

Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (m/f/d)

 

ORGANISATION/COMPANY: Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing

RESEARCH FIELD: Biological sciences › Biology

RESEARCHER PROFILE: Established Researcher (R3); Recognised Researcher (R2)

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 31/05/2022 23:00 - Europe/Brussels

LOCATION: Germany › Cologne

TYPE OF CONTRACT: Temporary

JOB STATUS: Full-time

HOURS PER WEEK: 39

REFERENCE NUMBER: 01-2021

 

OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Proteomics and ADP-ribosylation signaling Research Group
headed by Ivan Matic at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing
is looking for a full time

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (m/f/d) (job code 01-2021)

 

We are interested in revealing the molecular secrets of ADP-ribosylation (ADPr), a challenging PTM that plays key roles in health and disease. Using advanced proteomics, we uncovered Serine ADPr as a new type of histone mark (Nature Chemical Biology 2016) and described the underlying molecular mechanisms by identifying HPF1/PAPR1 as its reader complex (Mol Cell 2017) and ARH3 as its eraser (eLife 2017). Crucially, we and others have shown that Ser-ADPr is the primary form of ADPr in the DNA damage response (eLife 2018). These insights are stimulating studies of how Ser-ADPr regulates the DNA damage response and chromatin dynamics, as exemplified by our recent report on the interplay between Ser-ADPr and canonical histone marks (Cell Reports 2018). Recently we established a chemical biology strategy that is based on the Ser-ADPr writer complex and allows the generation of a range of essential tools for ADPr. This novel technology has broad potential to illuminate ADPr signalling pathways in essential biological processes and has allowed us to elucidate the prevalence of mono-ADPr upon DNA damage (Cell 2020).

Currently with the support of an ERC consolidator grant we are capitalizing on our lead and combining our newly established chemical biology-based technology with state-of-the-art proteomics, biochemistry, molecular biology and microscopy techniques to study elusive, but biologically and clinically important forms of ADPr in the DNA damage response, chromatin dynamics and ageing.

We seek an ambitious and talented scientist to join an enthusiastic, fast-paced and collaborative team in an outstanding scientific environment.

Qualifications

The applicant is required to hold a Ph.D. in biology, molecular biology, biochemistry or a related field, and have a strong track record of accomplishments and relevant experience demonstrated by first author publication(s) in high-profile journals.

The working language is English; knowledge of the German language is not required.

Research environment

The Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing (MPI-AGE) was founded in 2008 with the aim to understand fundamental mechanisms of healthy ageing. It is part of a broad network of research institutions in the Cologne-Bonn area dedicated to research on ageing, metabolism, and age-related disease, including the CECAD Cluster of Excellent in the University of Cologne and the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research, constituting a vibrant and collaborative environment for research. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and excellent core facilities, to which the successful candidate will have access, the institute provides outstanding research opportunities for its scientists. At the moment, we host employees from more than 30 different nations.

Polymer Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences

PhD Position in Organic Chemistry and Technology of Polymeric Materials

 

OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Ph.D. topic deals with the in-situ preparation of hydrogels based on polysaccharides stabilized by both transient non-covalent and covalent cross-links within its network structure. Resulting hydrogels as implantable polymeric devices should be suitable predominantly for the long-term immunoprotection of transplanted cells. This dual cross-linking strategy will be established to overcome the low mechanical and chemical stability of ionically cross-linked cell-laden hydrogels upon exposure to the in vivo environment. In this Ph.D. thesis, a clickable polysaccharide, having enough polyelectrolyte-binding sites and biocompatible moieties, will be synthesized by introducing the ionic-binding and click-reacting functional groups on the backbone of modified polysaccharides. The obtained polymers will lead to the formation of hydrogels via combining the bioorthogonal click-non-covalent and click-covalent crosslinks. The host-guest complexation will be selected as a click-non-covalent bond. The click-covalent bond will include “copper- and light-free” reactions such as thiol/aza-Michael addition and Diels-Alder cycloaddition. Finally, the physicochemical properties of the achieved hydrogels and their cytocompatibility behavior will be studied by encapsulation of various cell types (e.g. insulin-producing β-cell, native islets) with the potential for in vivo testing.

 

The successful candidate will carry out experimental research on "Self-healing implantable polymeric devices crosslinked via bioorthogonal click chemistry for cell encapsulation" including synthesis of the precursor, fabrication of hydrogels, functionalization, characterization, biological and optical properties, cell encapsulation applications, in an interdisciplinary research team at the Polymer Institute SAS within the doctoral study programs at:

Biochemical pathology of diabetes: Mechanisms of cysteine depletion during hyperglycaemia (HAMILTONC_U22SF)

 

ORGANISATION/COMPANY: University of East Anglia

RESEARCH FIELD: Pharmacological sciences

RESEARCHER PROFILE: First Stage Researcher (R1)

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 30/04/2022 23:00 - Europe/London

LOCATION: United Kingdom › Norwich

TYPE OF CONTRACT: Other

JOB STATUS: Other

OFFER STARTING DATE: 03/10/2022

OFFER REQUIREMENTS: Acceptable first degree: Minimum 2:1 in Chemistry, Pharmacy, Biological Sciences

OFFER DESCRIPTION

In humans, the cysteine-containing tripeptide glutathione (GSH) is an essential thiol cofactor that maintains an intracellular reducing environment to protect against oxidative stress, which causes lipid, protein & DNA damage.

Glutathione biosynthesis is limited by the availability of cysteine. In diabetics, hyperglycaemia causes long-term health complications, because elevated levels of glycolytic intermediates (dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) and glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate (GAP)) causing oxidative stress, which depletes intracellular glutathione and cysteine. This reduces the rate of glutathione biosynthesis, which explains why the glutathione levels are lower. However, nobody has ever established how and why the cysteine 

levels are reduced. We have recently discovered that cysteine can be chemically trapped by reaction with DHAP and GAP to form thiohemiacetals.

This project will characterise these reactions in detail (both in solution and in cells). Proving and understanding these biochemical reactions in vivo will fill a substantial gap in our knowledge of cellular biochemistry in diabetics. It will underpin future development of cysteine rich diets as a way to lower the long term health complications caused by hyperglycaemia in diabetics It will also establish the existence of an alternative intracellular reservoir for cysteine which could be of relevance across all living organisms.

The project offers extensive interdisciplinary training and research experience in analytical biochemistry, enzymology, whole cell NMR spectroscopy and cell biology. This will involve working within different research groups within the School of Pharmacy and The School of Biology.

The project is suited for a student with a degree in Chemistry, Pharmaceutical or Biological Sciences or a related discipline.

An earlier start date of 1 February or 1 June 2022 may be possible, but this should be discussed with the primary supervisor in the first instance

This PhD project is offered on a self-funding basis. It is open to applicants with funding or those applying to funding sources. Details of tuition fees can be found at https://www.uea.ac.uk/about/university-information/finance-and-procurement/finance-information-for-students/tuition-fees

A bench fee is also payable on top of the tuition fee to cover specialist equipment or laboratory costs required for the research. Applicants should contact the primary supervisor for further information about the fee associated with the project.

UCLouvain 

PhD scholarship (4 years) on muon tomography

The center for Cosmology, Particle Physics and Phenomenology (CP3) of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain) in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium) invites applications for one position aimed to obtain a Ph.D. in experimental particle physics, funded for four years.

The research project, under the primary supervision of Andrea Giammanco, will be in the area of "muon tomography", or "muography", i.e. an imaging method that exploits the large natural flux of muons from cosmic-ray interactions in the atmosphere. For general information on this relatively young research area, see a recent review here; for specific information on the CP3-muography team, please have a look here. This project will also overlap with the research goals of the MODE consortium (see webpage and this brief article), i.e. automatic optimization of the design of experiments.
The selected candidate will receive full funding through the H2020-RIA project "SilentBorder" funded by the European Commission. The aim of "SilentBorder" is to design new scanners and/or propose new methods, based on the principles of muography, for the detection of illicit materials in specific case studies where traditional scanning methods are inadequate or insufficient. The main research task of the selected candidate will be to develop a fast, general and flexible simulation framework for muon tomography (applicable also outside of the SilentBorder research goals) in synergy with the rest of the CP3-muography team and other teams belonging to SilentBorder and with support from MODE experts in differentiable programming; and to apply such framework for the optimization of the design of muon tomography scanners.
This work is expected to lead to academic publications and presentations at international conferences, with the selected candidate as leading author or coauthor depending on the contribution. The skills and competences acquired during this work are expected to enhance the career prospects both in academia and the private sector.
There are no teaching duties in this position.

The net salary is slightly more than 2060 EUR/month, with social security covering health insurance, sickness, invalidity and, if applicable, family allowances. You will be entitled to a public transport pass paid by the university.
By applying to this position, you pledge to comply to academic best practices and to strive for contributing to a healthy and collaborative work environment.
The position is open to candidates of any nationality. This position will remain open until suitable candidates are found, but the first screening of applicants will start on 1st of June 2021, therefore we advice to complete your application by then. Although the current funding only allows us to cover a single PhD scholarship, short-listed candidates may be considered for other positions in case other budgets become available in the near future.
The earliest date of start of the contract is 1st of September 2021. Later starting dates are possible, preferentially before the end of 2021. By the regulations of our university, the contract cannot start before the candidate holds a MSc diploma.

PhD position - Impact of turbulent transport on W accumulation and fusion performance in the central part of ITER plasmas

 

JOB DESCRIPTION

JOB PROFILE/TYPE : PhD Candidate

RESEARCH FIELD(S) : magnetic fusion, plasma physics, turbulence

JOB LOCATION: AMU-PIIM (60%), CEA-IRFM (20%), ITER-IO (20%)

JOB DESCRIPTION : Aix-Marseille University, 3 years PhD contract

Impact of turbulent transport on W accumulation and fusion performance in the central part of ITER plasmas

Fusion energy promises high-energy-density baseload electricity and heat production with essentially limitless fuel reserves, inherent nuclear safety, and negligible impact on the environment. With the construction of ITER, we are entering a new phase where fusion experiments aim for net power gain. This challenging goal requires to avoid excessive radiative losses associated with high Z impurity accumulation in the confined plasma and to maximize the density and temperature of the main ions for increased fusion performance. A very recent numerical study revealed that pressure-driven instabilities known as Kinetic Ballooning Modes (KBM) are destabilized in the central region of high-performance JET plasmas and drive a subsequent level of heat and particle transport [N. Kumar et al., Nucl. Fusion 61, 036005 (2021)]. Preliminary gyrokinetic stability calculations indicate that the central part of ITER conventional H-mode scenarios is also prone to KBM destabilization. The goal of this PhD is to study the implications of core turbulent transport, including transport driven by KBM turbulence, on core W accumulation in ITER, and mechanisms for its control. The problem will be addressed with state-of-the-art non-linear gyrokinetic simulations complemented with tokamak simulations relying on reduced transport models. The thesis will be jointly supervised by A. Loarte from ITER Organisation, C. Bourdelle from CEA Cadarache and Y. Camenen from Aix-Marseille University.

Abstract

Pellet-Cladding Interaction (PCI) in a Light Water Reactor is one of the major concerns to guarantee fuel rod clad integrity of PWR nuclear reactor during operations needed to follow power grid demand. In order to forbid operations leading to clad failure, modeling capability to simulate the mechanism has improved through the years. And, Codes need more and more detailed and precise experimental data. Until now, those data result from dedicated irradiation programs, named “power ramp tests”, carried out in experimental devices in Material Testing Reactors, ISABELLE in OSIRIS in the past and the future ADELINE in the Jules Horowitz Reactor JHR.

There is currently no instrumentation for online PCI detection required for full validation of the modeling scheme.

A previous work has shown that it is possible to measure, under specific conditions, the effects of PCI on the vibrations of a nuclear fuel rod subjected to axial excitation of turbulent flow under external conditions. The objective of this PhD thesis will then be to develop a general process, including the three aspects, modelling, measurement and data processing, in order to improve existing methods capable of providing precise information on the mechanical interactions of the components of a complex structure in a very constrained context (limited space for instrumentation, high temperatures, irradiation, etc.).

University of Copenhagen (Denmark)

Postdoc position in social psychology or sociology

 

The Center for Subjectivity Research (CFS), Department of Communication, Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen (UCPH), Denmark, invites applications for a postdoc position in social psychology or sociology to be filled by September 1, 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is for 2 years.

 

Information about CFS can be found at https://cfs.ku.dk/

 

The closing date for applications is May 8, 2022

 

 

Job content


The postdoc will be part of a project entitled Who are We? funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and headed by Prof. Dan Zahavi. Applicants are asked to situate and develop their research plan within the framework of the Who are we? project.

 

The larger project investigates what it means to feel, think, and act as part of a we. Its guiding hypothesis is that a systematic account of the we must be embedded in a more comprehensive investigation of selfhood and social cognition. The project will systematically develop this hypothesis by combining cross-disciplinary theorizing with historical scholarship. In particular, it will draw on seminal contributions from classical phenomenology. In addition to philosophers, the project will also involve social scientists (from social anthropology, sociology, clinical psychology, and political theory).

 

The postdoc should be a theoretically oriented social scientist who is thoroughly familiar with social identity and self-categorisation theory, i.e., who knows the classical work of Tajfel, Turner, Hogg, Abrams, Brewer, etc. but who is also up to date with more recent discussions in social psychology on group identification. During the employment, the candidate should engage with the following set of questions: What is the link between identity and identification? How does group identification affect self-identity? What kind of individual heterogeneity and plurality does group-identification (and unification) allow for? What kind of interpersonal relation is particularly conducive for group-identification?

 

The successful candidate will be working in close cooperation with philosophers and other social scientists and should be interested in theory development. The postdoc is not expected to conduct new empirical research during the period of employment.

 

Qualification requirements  


In order to be considered for the position, applicants must have research qualifications at least corresponding to what can be achieved as part of a successfully completed PhD. It is expected that the successful candidate will be present, part of the team, and partake in the activities at CFS on a daily basis.

 

Furthermore, emphasis will be placed on the following:  

 

  • Research qualifications, which will be assessed in relation to the period of active research, the degree of originality, and academic output.  
  • The applicant’s scientific record, academic breadth and depth, rigor, thoroughness and accuracy, as well as academic relevance in relation to the job description.
  • Participation in networks – national and international  
  • Previous experience with interdisciplinary collaboration and research
  • Familiarity with social identity and self-categorization theory is essential. Some familiarity with phenomenology and/or contemporary philosophical discussions of collective intentionality would be an additional asset  
  • Good interpersonal skills  
  • Excellent skills in English, written and spoken  

 

For further details about the qualification requirements for postdocs, please refer to the job structure for academic staff https://employment.ku.dk/faculty/criteria-for-recognising-merit/dokumenter/Ministerial_Order_no._1443_of_11_December_2019_on_Job_Structure_for_Academic_Staff_at_Universities.pdf
