Admitting young and other researchers aims to gather and form a team of young, professional, and ambitious research associates who will participate in writing national and international projects, their implementation, conducting scientific research, and publishing scientific papers and monographs in the field of disaster studies.
We note that the funding of young researchers depends on the project activities in which they will participate and includes initial volunteer work during the acquisition of scientific research activities until the approval of the first scientific research project. In addition, researchers would acquire practical knowledge and skills that could be their advantage in further training and employment. After obtaining financial resources, it is planned to send young researchers to appropriate training to acquire scientific and professional qualifications. Also, the network of mentors or experienced professors who will be involved in the work of young researchers will enable the transfer of knowledge and invaluable experience relevant to their further scientific research work.
For each department, there are five associate positions: Department for research of phenomenology, endangerment, and resistance to disasters; Department for Disaster Preparedness and Mitigation Research; Department for Disaster Protection and Rescue Research; Disaster Recovery Research Department; Disaster Risk Management Department; Department for Research on International Cooperation and the Legal Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
