Second Wave of the Postdoc Contest of Human Resources Support for Research Started at SUSU

We invite our university’s scientific groups to take part in the contest aiming at attracting young talented postdoc researchers to the university. 

Here is to remind you that a postdoc is a highly-efficient research fellow aged 35 or less, who has recently defended his/her candidate (or PhD) thesis, has work experience in the leading Russian and foreign universities, and published papers in the leading scientific journals with high impact factor.

The post-doctoral studies program at South Ural State University is being fulfilled within the project of the university’s competitiveness enhancement among the major research-and-education centers (Project 5-100). In 2017 the first six postdocs successfully started their research studies in the laboratories and research-and-education centers of our university.

The second wave contest is held in two rounds:

The 1st (internal) round of the contest – research projects contest – starts at the university on May 1, 2018.

In the course of the contest the leading scientists of the university may file an application including a description of the research project for which young scientists (postdocs) are planned to be involved. The postdocs-attracting projects contest is open for all teaching and research staff, the themes of research works of whom are included into the priority fields of the university’s development, as well as interdisciplinary research. Here is to remind you that SUSU’s development priority fields are:

  • Engineering;
  • Social Sciences and Humanities, Economical Sciences, and Human Sciences;
  • Big Data Analysis;
  • Natural Sciences and Mathematics.

To participate in the contest, you should file an application in Russian and in English with description of the research project under which it is planned to involve a postdoc, and with indicated professional requirements to the candidates.

The Application Form may be found in the Attachment to this news.  

The applications in electronic form will be accepted through May 25, 2018 at:  subbotinati[at]susu[dot]ru

The 2nd (external) round of the contest is the postdocs contest. According to the applications which win the 1st round, in the projects contest, postdoc vacancies will be open in Russian and foreign recruiting spaces. The postdocs attracted in the course of this contest will be able to perform research work at SUSU for the period of two years.

The postdocs who win in the contest will be provided the following by the university:

  • Employment in the position of the SUSU scientific staff for the period of one year with a possibility to extend the contract;
  • Access to laboratories fitted with modern research equipment;
  • Possibility of accommodation in a dormitory near the SUSU’s main building;
  • Visa support (for foreign citizens); and
  • Postdoc support service for working in the university.

SUSU Postdoc Contest is a great chance to attract a talented employee from a Russian or foreign university to our team of scientists, someone capable of revitalizing our research studies, and through that improving the quality of scientific developments and publication activity. This, in its turn, will facilitate SUSU’s recognition by the international academic community.
