EURAXESS: Recruitment of researchers

A world of researcher recruitment revolves around EURAXESS

These are challenging times for any business. It is difficult to maintain a competitive edge, but the one way to go about it is to invest in R&D. Perhaps you are at present looking to hire a researcher, but where do you start? Your first port of call should be EURAXESS.









"EURAXESS – Researchers in Motion" is a pan-European initiative to enhance research potential in Europe. It brings together the European Commission and 36 countries to provide a wealth of information and support regarding research careers across the European Research Area.

EURAXESS Jobs: a stress-free recruitment tool offering constantly updated information on research job vacancies, funding opportunities and fellowships throughout Europe, making it an attractive place for researchers to look for the best opportunities. Your research job vacancy could be the one they are looking for. Here you can post job vacancies and search for the best candidates, free of charge.

EURAXESS Services: a network of over 200 centres located in 36 European countries, at your disposal for any concerns you may have regarding the employment of a researcher irrespective of nationality. You can receive free and personalised assistance on topics including: visas; work permits; accommodation; social security; taxes; and language lessons.

EURAXESS Rights: spells out rights and obligations for researchers and their employers through the 'European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for their Recruitment'. This ‘Charter & Code' has the aim of supporting research careers and encouraging transparent and fair recruitment procedures. In signing the ‘Charter & Code' you join a truly pan-European network of researchers and research organisations, and you benefit from international visibility on the EURAXESS Rights website and eventually through the use of the special HR Excellence in Research Logo. To date, nearly 1000 institutions from 30 countries have expressed their support.
