They may have subsidized lunches at the BC’s canteen, meaning that part of the lunch price is covered by the Social Fund which offers also other benefits. Czech Labour Code guarantees a minimum of 4 weeks of vacation per year, but at the BC employees are entitled to another one week, i.e. 5 weeks of paid holiday in total. BC employees also have an opportunity to take advantage of concessionary mobile tariff at our contractual operator and concessionary banking services at our contractual bank.
How do we treat unsolicited job applications?
We are very pleased at an interest of applicants sending us their CVs with a request for a job opportunity. However, we believe that “suitability” for certain job lies in meeting necessary requirements as well as in candidate’s personal motivation and vision. Therefore, we recommend that every candidate screens our portfolio and evaluates themself, if any of the posted job offers is interesting. Also, because of the GDPR, we are not allowed to keep any CVs and other documents with personal data, unless they have been sent as a part of application for any of advertised job offers.
All the vacancies at our institution, incl. their descriptions, requirements and other information, may be found at www.jobs.bc.cas.cz/en. In case any of the job offer catches your eye, do not hesitate to apply for it via its reply form.
What can you expect after sending an application for a vacancy?
After you send a form with your reply to a specific vacancy, your application is saved in our program and you receive an e-mail with confirmation that you have been included in the selection procedure. Every applicant will be informed with the progress of the selection procedure. However, the time between you sending the application and our reaction may last even several weeks due to often long period of the job advertisement itself (i.e. collection of applications) and subsequent evaluation and selection of applicants. Please be patient, you will get an answer.
Selection procedure for every vacant research position at our institutes is held in accordance with principles of Open, Transparent, Merit-based Recruitment of Researchers (OTM-R). Find out more.
During selection procedures for non-research positions, just as in case of researches' selection, we deny any discrimination (sex, age, race, social status and conditions etc.) and we proceed transparently.
