Working conditions

URV strongly believes that the best research results come from offering the best working conditions needed to get these results. As such, URV is committed to offer the doctoral fellows the best facilities to run his/her research, and the best environment and support for his/her activities. Obviously, administrative and financial support will be offer to the fellow and hosting research group to guarantee all the paperwork is properly done and the fellow can run smoothly his/her new live in the URV. Several URV administrative units, such us, Human Resources, Research Management, International Center, Student Care, Research Departments, will work together to take care of the fellow in terms of contract signing, VISA issues, research funds management for his/her project, trips and accommodation arrangements, etc.

Additionally, for MFP fellows, the fellow will have:

  • Contribution to research and training activities: A yearly allowance (up to 7500 €) will be granted to the research group to carry out training or scientific activities of the fellow.
  • Interdisciplinary and inter-sectorial training skills: fellows will benefit from a long stay (between 3 and 6 months) at an international partner organization, and, possibly, an industrial partner, where s/he will undergo training in research and transferrable skills.

All relevant URV facilities will be at the fellows' disposal, according to the research area of choice. The URV Scientific and Technical Service (SRCT) provides essential technical support to people involved in research and innovation activities in all the URV's scientific and technical fields. One of the objectives of this service is to facilitate access to the technical and human resources available to research groups. Furthermore, the service works with companies and organizations to promote research in both the private and institutional sectors. It also provides specialized training to enable professionals to do their work themselves with the most up-to-date knowledge and facilities. It is noteworthy that the SRCT services are concentrated in a 1500 m2 state of the art facility, provides support to 81 researchers from CEICS, and has industrial contracts with 83 companies from the region.

The Resource Centre for Learning and Research (CRAI) is a common environment to all the university services that support learning, teaching and research related to information and information technologies for learning and knowledge. Specifically, it offers the services of a library, support for learning languages, support for research and teaching, support for writing teaching materials and academic works, computer classrooms, etc. This environment is available to all fellows that are registered at URV.

The URV Occupational Risk Prevention Office prepares, monitors and evaluates the implementation of the risk prevention regulations and other regulations related to safety and health at work. It promotes safe conduct while at work and encourages workers to take an interest in and cooperate with prevention, and also to collaborate with the URV's own prevention services and other institutions to monitor and protect workers' health.
