Under Project 5-100, South Ural State University is working on attracting skilful young scientists with international experience.
The project is led by Tatiana Subbotina, head of International Research Collaboration at SUSU and aimed at attracting young scientists from all over the world. To achieve that, the university has developed a comprehensive roadmap and set up a project team responsible for finding the right candidates.
Appointing young scientists as postdoctoral fellows who follow a career in academia or research is commonplace all around the world. Postdoctoral fellows play an essential role in any university; they significantly contribute to the development of research and education and share unique experience and new techniques.
The University Council evaluates all postdoctoral applications based on the following criteria:
- candidate’s academic qualifications, publication list, and personal skill requirements;
- matching the candidate’s research interest with the work of the university project teams.
South Ural State University can appoint young researchers as postdoctoral fellows for a maximum period of two years.
