[pracownicy] The opportunity to join UNA4CAREER by hosting secondments

Dear Professors,

We are looking for research groups from the universities participating in the UNA EUROPA alliance interested in hosting for short periods (1-6 months) post-doctoral researchers hired through the UNA4CAREER programme, to collaborate with them in the development of their projects.

UNA4CAREER is a MSCA COFUND fellowship programme that leverages in UNA Europa to provide researchers with an interdisciplinary as well as intersectoral dimension, specifically through secondments.

Particularly, the member universities of UNA Europa signed letters of commitment offering the possibility for postdocs participating in the programme to carry out research stays in research groups or institutions in the non academic sector linked to these universities that are potentially interested in hosting them.

At this point, and before launching the first UNA4CAREER call, we need to identify research groups and non academic organisations (such as companies –spin-offs or the like- , libraries, museums, public administrations).

We have prepared a simple one page website explaining the process and the benefits:

Along with this we have also prepare a simple form to collect the information from the actors interested in joining UNA4CAREER hosting secondments:  https://oficinaeuropea.ucm.es/una4career.

Please notice that unlike UNA Europa, UNA4CAREER is not only focused on the UNA Europa "Focus areas", but it is open to all areas of knowledge: Humanities, Social and Legal Sciences, Experimental Sciences and Health. Therefore, as far as possible, do not limit the dissemination to the focus areas established in UNA Europa.

By filling the online form research groups and organisations express their interest in receiving UNA4CAREER postdoctoral researchers to do secondments with them. However, it does not imply an obligation: secondments only will take place in case an agreement is reached between the post-doctoral candidate and the research group or the non-academic organisation during the application process. The agreement shall be formalised through a letter of commitment (a template will be provided in due course). 

We remain at your disposal for any further questions you might have.
