Back OTM-R

Transparency policy in recruitment and talent attraction processes

The BCBL has recently defined its OTM -R policy (pdf available below) , as an improvement of our recruitment procedures designed and developed within our management model (MP1). 

We are convinced that ensuring that the best applicant gets recruited, Open, Transparent and Merit-based Recruitment of researchers will improve the effectiveness of our organization and thus, our research program. As a result, we believe implementing this methodology promotes optimal circulation of scientific knowledge.

Open Recruitment guarantees the equal opportunities principle. Our recruitment processes respect diversity, promoting non-discrimination due to reasons of race, color, age, sex, marital status, ideology, political opinions, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, or any other personal, physical or social conditions among its professionals. Therefore job calls are widely published, both nationally and internationally.

Transparent Recruitment at the BCBL is guaranteed by the establishment of monitoring indicators and the quality control check performed at the BCBL every time a job call ends. 

Merit-based Recruitment guarantees that applicants to any BCBL offer compete effectively for a job, based merely on their academic background, technical and professional skills, motivation, abilities and knowledge.

The scope of the OTM-R policy at the BCBL covers the recruitment and talent attraction procedures for the following profiles:

Early Stage Researchers (R1)
