IFAE Careers

HR Excellence Research Award

IFAE supports the Recommendation of the European Commission 2005/251/EC on the “European Charter for Researchers” and the “Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers”.

The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers defines how the Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE) will help its researchers and IFAE itself to incorporate the 40 principles and requirements of the European Charter for Researchers and of the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter and Code) in the centre’s day‐to‐day activity.

The document corresponds to the first step of the HR Strategy for Researchers of the centre, it is based on an internal analysis and it deploys an Action Plan with a set of scheduled actions inspired in the Charter and Code principles and endorsed by a set of internal rules and practices.


The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) is the mechanism through which the European Commission seeks to ensure that concrete steps are taken by institutions to enhance working conditions for researchers across Europe as set out in the Charter & Code. Recognition of these steps takes the form of the HR Excellence in Research Badge, which identifies those institutions and organisations that are committed to offering a favourable working environment in research.
