IPHES is committed to the principles of The European Charter for Researchers & Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers promoted by the European Commission. The main idea underlying these principles is that of open, transparent and merit-based recruitment (OTM-R), a set of best practices promoted by the European Commission to ensure that the best person for the job is recruited. They seek to guarantee equal opportunities and access for all, enable the development of an international portfolio and make research careers more attractive.

Consequently, our recruitment process is structured around the following principles:

  • Equal opportunities
  • Respect for cultural diversity
  • Transparency
  • Evaluation based on scientific merit and/or professional career
  • Professional and personal potential of candidates
  • Alignment of professional competencies and attitudes with the culture and values of the IPHES
