Australian Researchers’ Mobility Portal

Thursday 10th May 2007

The revamped CORDIS Research Openings Service provides details of calls for applications from experts and specialists in various aspects of European Union research policy. Users will also find information on career opportunities through research fellowships and in the European institutions, new project partnership needs arising from competitive calls, and links to other EU, national and regional openings websites.

If you are a researcher planning your next move in Europe, look here for career opportunities, as well as relevant information and assistance. The service provides access to several search engines that can help identify the best career and mobility opportunities in your field under the Marie Curie Actions, EURATOM and JRC fellowships and other initiatives.

“Without researchers, there is no science in Europe,” Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for Science and Research, has said, and the European Commission has adopted a European Charter and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. These two documents, addressed to researchers as well as to employers and funders in both the public and private sectors, are key elements in the European Union’s policy to make research an attractive career — a vital feature of its strategy to stimulate economic and employment growth.

The objective of the newly-revamped service is to outline the working culture of European research, provide support and details of calls for applications for experts and specialists in various aspects of EU research policy, provide access to EU research and technical development (RTD) openings, and inform of opportunities within research fellowships. The three dedicated sections, ‘Working Culture’, ‘EU RTD Experts’ Openings’ and ‘Research Mobility’ provide the details.
