The Recruitment Commission (REC) was firstly constituted in November 2017 as a direct initiative of the Director of the Department who appointed members and President in total autonomy. The function of REC is to assist the Director in the complex and delicate mission of designing the strategic development of the staff, taking into account all the functions in his responsibility: teaching, researching and sanitary assistance. REC has exclusively the function of preparing documents to be submitted to the Director and to the Department Committee. REC does not assume decisions, but simply proposes criteria for a balanced and sustainable management of the development of DIMEVET in order to optimize all the resources.

June 5, 2018
The REC meeting is devoted to a specific problem. According to a recent request by the Central Administration of the Athenaeum, the Department is urged to take decisions on the renewal of 4 presently active positions of Research Grant. In the general discussion is pointed out that for the future only 5 active Researcher positions and only 11 active Research Grant positions will be financed. A stringent selection of this personnel is therefore necessary and REC recommends that younger scholars should be alerted of possible limits of their expectations.
