The junior researcher position is part of the research project "TIER2" (funded by the EU funding program Horizon Europe). The aim of the project is to investigate reproducibility across different disciplinary contexts and create and test tools to enhance Trust, Integrity and Efficiency in Research through next-level Reproducibility. For more information on the project, see the official website (TIER2 Project
) and the full proposal can be found here: Rio journal
.About your role
The researcher will be involved in several empirical steps in the project. The researcher will collaborate closely with international partners from Austria, Denmark, Germany (among others) in the project and will play an important role in the empirical work (the conduct in futures studies, creation of tools with co-creation activities and pilot testing of existing tools in different disciplinary domains) and there will also be room to develop your own ideas and plans related to reproducibility.
