SUSU PostDoc-2020 Program

Starting from February 7, 2020 applications for participation in the SUSU PostDoc-2020 contest are being accepted. SUSU PostDoc is a program for supporting the university’s research activity by attracting staff members. The program is being fulfilled through the scientific research being conducted by young scientists (postdocs) with the advisory assistance of our university’s scientists.

Currently, research studies are being carried out at our university by 18 postdocs from different countries: Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, India, Croatia, People’s Republic of China, Tunisia, and Mexico.

Over the period of 2017-2019, 118 articles with postdocs as co-authors have been published in highly rated scientific journals indexed in Scopus and Web of Science databases.

The SUSU PostDoc-2020 contest is held in two rounds:

Round I (internal): contest of scientific project advisors. Qualified as participants are university members of the academic staff, whose research work’s topics fall within the priority fields of the university development, as well as cross-disciplinary research studies.

A scientific project advisor’s application must include: a brief description of the project, for which young scientists (postdocs) are planned to be attracted; requirements to the competences of young scientists and the results planned to be obtained through their work.
