HR Excellence in Research UAB The HR Excellence accreditation identifies institutions with favourable working conditions for their researchers

Recruitment and Selection

By following the OTMR principles, the UAB disseminates its job offers for researchers via two channels: a specific UAB portal, Convocatòries UPAC, and the international portal Euraxess.

The research projects funded by European programmes (Horizon Europe, Erasmus+, FEDER) must  advertise vacancies internationally, being Euraxess one of the most encouraged options.

Below you can find more details on how to use these two different platforms.

In order to publish job offers, departments/institutes must follow this link. In there it is detailed how to publish call for tenders with dedicated funding. The Academic Staff Unit (UPAc) will publicise them via Euraxess when required.

Euraxess also allows publication of hosting offers for applicants to the MSCA Individual Fellowships Calls. Consequently, research groups can look for candidates wanting to submit an IF proposal with the UAB as host institution.

In that case, the department/institute will need to create its own Euraxess profile and publish the offer by clicking on the Hosting Offers section.  Amongst the applications received, each research group can start a selection process and show its interest in submitting a joint proposal.
