The organization of a call to award funding for six research projects with a two-year duration to foster excellence among young researchers working in the Institute's fields of research and technological development (accelerators, electronics/Information technology, detectors, interdisciplinary research).

 

Benefits

The maximum funding for the selected projects is € 75,000.00 (seventy-five thousand euro) per year.

Projects whose funding request is up to the above-mentioned sum will be excluded from the evaluation.

In addition, the proposers of successful projects will be assigned a two-year grant of € 30,000.00 (thirty thousand euro) gross per year. All the services provided to employees, including canteen facilities, will be granted to grant holders, under current regulations of the assigned Structure.

Subsistence allowance will be provided to grant holders travelling for reasons related to the planned activities of the grant, under the same conditions and regulations provided for INFN employees.

Eligibility criteria

Participation in the call is open to Italian, EU or non-EU young researchers, in the capacity of proposers and project managers, who are in a non-permanent position and who have a PhD or equivalent qualification gained no more than eight years prior to the call deadline.

Selection process

Project evaluation will take place in two separate phases:

1. a shortlist shall be drawn up by a committee of five external assessors selected from a group of academics specialising in CSN5 research areas. To ensure assessor gender balance, no more than three of the five assessors shall be of the same gender. The choice of external assessors will be overseen by the Executive Committee and the CSN5 President, taking into account the views expressed by the CSN5. The names of the external assessors will be published on the CSN5 website, along with their curricula;

2. a presentation of the shortlisted projects before a plenary session of the CSN5, followed by an evaluation by a Selection Commission composed by the President of CSN5, four members of the CSN5 and by an external member appointed by the Executive Committee.

This time limit may be extended only in the cases listed below. The reasons for an extension must be duly documented in the application:

a) in cases of maternity, the doctoral graduation time limit shall be extended by 18 months for each child born before or after graduation;
