Working Conditions

In line with the Charter and Code, TÜBİTAK ensures that working conditions meet respective national, regional or sectoral legislation requirements.

All CoCirculation2 fellows will be appointed on a fixed employment contract under Turkish Employment Act (EA) No. 4857 of 2003. This law applies for all employees in Turkey. All fellows will be covered for social security and be entitled to social benefits under the SSK scheme, under the same conditions as Turkish citizens. The legal arrangements with regards to labor and social security in Turkey are in line with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and other generally accepted standards. Statutory working practices for CoCirculation2 ERs will be the same as for other staff from the host organisations working in similar positions. All ERs must have access to laboratory and/or office space that is needed for the proper implementation, and must have access to all infrastructure and equipment needed to carry out the project. All ERs have the right to attend conferences relevant for the advancement of their career. CoCirculation2 fellows will receive a salary that is on average higher than other researchers in similar positions would earn. By providing a very attractive salary, TÜBİTAK hopes to receive applications from excellent and well-placed researchers.
