- Staff mobility
If you are a teacher or a researcher in one of our partner universities, and you want to have an experience at UM, please contact your home institution’s international service. To know more about our exchange programmes, please refer to the “How to apply” page on this website (faire le renvoi sur la page Study at the UM > How to apply).
In order to facilitate your stay:
– The Euraxess service of Montpellier assists mobile researchers and their family in every step of their move; it is dedicated to PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, visiting researchers and professors hosted in higher education and research institutions.
– UM provides 6 bedrooms at the residence hall Minerve right next to the university (3 months maximum). For more information: Christine Hermet
- European certification for Human Resources Excellence in Research
Since 2005, the European Commission has adopted a series of recommendations for researchers as well as employers and funders in both the public and private sectors. These recommendations are embodied in two documents: the “European Charter for Researchers” and the “Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers”.
These documents address the rights and obligations of employers and all personnel involved with scientific research-linked activities. They aim to facilitate careers, generalize good practices, harmonize employment conditions, and encourage mobility for all research jobs within Europe. They stand as key elements in the European Union’s policy to make research an attractive career, which is a vital feature of its strategy to stimulate economic and employment growth. The Commission recognizes institutions that have expressed their explicit support for the Charter & Code by awarding them the European “HR Excellence in Research” badge.
Philippe AUGÉ, President of the University of Montpellier, has recently reinstated our institution’s commitment, as a research-intensive university, to continue to raise its practices to the standards set by the Charter and Code.
This commitment seeks to:
– Support UM’s policy of excellence in research
– Participate in the construction of the European Research Area
– Contribute to our institution’s international visibility and attractiveness
To achieve these goals, an internal process is currently taking place at UM. The process is based on the tool provided by the European Commission to help employers and funders put the principles of the Charter & Code into practice: the “Human Resources Strategy for Researchers” (HRS4R). This quality control process includes, on the one hand, the conduction of an auto-analysis of our institution’s strengths and weaknesses with regards to the 40 points of the Charter and Code, and on the other hand, the elaboration of a strategy of actions to be implemented so as to reach the proposed framework. These elements will soon be published on this page.
