Presentation and objectives

Over the next four years, the ERC Advanced Grant MAP 741182 project has budgetary support available in order to invite researchers. These stays can be from 2 to 4 months per researcher, with the exclusion of the months of July and August (due to the fact that the university is closed for a large part of the summer). Guest researchers will work within the team, exchanging therein and participating in the improvement of the databases. Guest researchers will equally be requested to take part in MAP scientific activities (seminars, workshops, conferences…).

The position of guest researcher and this call for applications is open to everybody, of French or foreign nationality, whose competences and project are deemed to be of interest to the MAP project.

Applicants

The candidate application file should include the following elements:

  1. Signed application form, which will be verified and classified.
  2. CV including a list of publications.
  3. Scientific project upon which the candidate is working, highlighting its existing links with the MAP Team’s research.
  4. Provisional dates of the stay.

An electronic version of the file should be sent to: elodie.guillon@univ-tlse2.fr 

Deadline for submission of applications: 20th of October, 2018.

Selection

The selection process will be carried out according to the following criteria:

  • Complete file (application form + CV).
  • Scientific quality of the CV and quality of the proposal.
  • Priority will be given to competences complimentary to those within the team.
  • The results will be published on the 31st of October, 2018.

Expenses

For guest researchers who are already assigned to a research facility: they will receive a maximum fixed amount of €2000 per month based on proof of their accommodation and meal costs. A further maximum fixed amount is added to cover their travel expenses from their place of residence to Toulouse (one way trip):

  • €400 for travel from a European country (based on proof of expenses);
  • €800 for travel from a country outside of Europe (based on proof of expenses);

Under no circumstances will the flat-rate amount cover an extension of the trip for personal reasons.

For researchers who are not assigned to a research facility: upon validation of their application, they will receive a list of documents which they must provide so that a fixed-term contract (CDD) can be drawn up covering the duration of their stay in Toulouse which they will sign when they arrive (salary around €1800 per month).

The Toulouse Jean Jaurès University has collaborations which enable the rental of guest rooms or studio apartments. Guest researchers can request this and the MAP Team will complete the reservation, subject to availability.

Administrative arrangements for reception of the guest researcher

  1. Each guest researcher will receive notification through a formal letter from the Principal Inverstigator, Corinne Bonnet, stating the dates, the flat-rate amounts and conditions of reception and stay.
  2. When the guest researcher has finalised the final dates of their stay at the university, they must provide the documents necessary for the management of their trip, as soon as possible, in accordance with a list provided with the formal letter from the PI. Once the guest researcher has arrived at the UT2J, the MAP Team is in charge of informing the appropriate authorities in order to sign the different documents which are required.
  3. Guest researchers are obliged to provide documentation evidencing their medical coverage and liability insurance for the duration of the stay.
  4. The guest researcher must submit a photograph and a short biography which will feature on the team’s website.
  5. Guest researchers will provide Corinne Bonnet with a report page at the end of their stay.
