Iščemo nove sodelavce

Na Inštitutu za razvojne in strateške analize vabimo k sodelovanju nove sodelavce ali sodelavke s končanim magisterijem ali doktoratom (oz. doktorske študente), ki imajo izkušnje z raziskovalnim delo. K sodelovanju vabimo predvsem družboslovce in raziskovalce/ke iz biomedicinskih ved, ki jih zanima interdisciplinarno raziskovanje, saj se bomo v prihodnjih mesecih predvsem posvetili projektu analize spoprijemanja z epidemijo v Sloveniji in širše (v sklopu CRP-a, 2021).

Za več informacij glede možnosti sodelovanja zainteresirane prosimo, da nam pišete na irsa@institut-irsa.si in dodate svojo predstavitev (CV).
