A creative career as a young researcher - apply for the Young Researcher Call 2023!

The University of Primorska published a call for young researchers at the University of Primorska in 2023. One position is also open at the UP Faculty of Management (UP FM).

Everyone's career path is roughly mapped out when they choose their course of study. After graduation, most of us are faced with finding our first job and building our career path. Faculties offer creative, varied, and challenging careers in a variety of forms, including as a young researcher. Researchers have a wide range of skills to succeed in their roles. They include critical thinking, problem-solving, analytical reasoning, decision-making, planning, organizing, and communication skills. Becoming a young researcher is therefore a great opportunity to develop your skills and abilities.

In 2023, the University of Primorska is offering five vacancies for young researchers to train as researchers and pursue doctoral studies at UP, on the basis of a full-time employment contract for a period of up to four years. Applicants must have completed a second-level degree programme within the last four years and have an average mark in all examinations and tutorials, including the master's thesis, of at least 8.

Candidates may apply for training with the following mentors, in the following research fields and in the framework of the UP parent research programmes. One young researcher will be selected for each mentor:

Only one candidate can be selected per mentor. In the event of a higher number of candidates, they shall be ranked by the sum of the points scored. The best candidate with the highest points score will be selected. If two candidates achieve the same number of points, priority shall be given to the candidate of the underrepresented sex in a particular research field, insofar as the research field is characterised by an imbalance of UP researchers by sex (more than 60 %/40% in favour/disadvantage to one sex).

Candidates submit applications and annexes in electronic format (scanned documents in PDF format) to the e-mail address: razpis.mr@upr.si by June 15, 2023 (fifteenth of June 2023), by the end of the day.

On 23 February 2023, a workshop entitled Career Opportunity: entering university as a young researcher was held at UP FM for students interested in a career as researchers. Many students and young graduates find it difficult to imagine the possible career paths and opportunities available to them. To make things a little easier, a young researcher from the UP Faculty of Management, Asist. Jan Frančeškin presented the entire Young Researchers Programme. The workshop gave participants an overview of the possibilities and ideas on how to plan their career. Directions from Asist. Jan's presentations were intended as guidelines that can encourage students to think about what best suits their abilities, interests, and values. Read more about the workshop HERE.
