Sul mercato della ricerca

Qualche post fa mi lamentavo di come fosse difficile per noi Università italiane attirare cervelli dall'estero.

Per rafforzare il concetto, vi riporto un estratto di una "call for post-doc" da parte di un centro di ricerca portoghese.


CALL FOR RESEARCH SCIENTIST POSITIONS
in Wireless Sensor Networks

===========================================
Application Deadline: June 7, 2009
Send to: JOBS@cister-isep.info
Reference: C2009-RS/EMMON/01

http://www.cister.isep.ipp.pt/jobs/
===========================================


RESPONSABILITIES:
-----------------
The successful candidates are expected to coordinate and primarily execute the
activities of CISTER in the ARTEMIS funded project EMMON (http://www.artemis-emmon.eu), namely by conducting research on large scale wireless sensor networks'
communication protocols and data aggregation methods. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to develop an independent research program on a sub-set of the above referred strategic research areas with the purpose of providing synergy with and strengthen existing research areas at the CISTER/IPP-HURRAY research unit. They should also be skilled to supervise post-graduate research.


REQUIREMENTS:
-------------
The candidates should have a PhD in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering or related fields with a thesis directly related to WSN. Proven expertise in communication protocols (namely IEEE 802.15.4, ZigBee, 6loWPAN) and operating systems (namely TinyOS).
Availability to start by July 2009 is highly desirable and will be one of the selection criteria. The candidates should also have had at least 2 years of post-doctoral experience (although this can be relaxed in some very specific cases). Fluency in written and spoken English is required. Availability to travel.


SALARY AND BENEFITS:
--------------------
This position is for a three year contract. Salary will be 2.650,00 € per month (after taxes) paid 12 times per year. Other benefits include private health insurance, social security and 25 days of paid vacation. The CISTER/IPP-HURRAY research facilities and expertise offer an excellent research environment for leveraging research skills.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE:
----------------------

Per confronto. Un post-doc in Italia corrisponde di solito a un Assegno di Ricerca, dell'importo massimo imposto dal ministero di 22.000 € annui before taxes. Essendo una borsa di studio, possiamo considerare circa 1400-1500 € al mese.

Un post-doc in Portogallo (in Portogallo, mica in Germania o in Inghilterra), invece, a quanto pare prende 2650 euro netti al mese, cioè circa 500 euro in più del sottoscritto che invece è professore associato confermato, e circa 1100 euro in più del post-doc italiano.

Ora voi ditemi perché un ricercatore straniero dovrebbe venire in Italia. Per la nostra bella faccia? Perché si mangia bene? Ma per favore.

Portogallo-Italia 2-0
