Depending on the funds available in the budget or upon expiration of a mandate, the Board of Governors at Hasselt University can decide to open a call for BOF ZAP (independent academic staff) mandates.
The procedure takes place in two phases:
- An open call is launched, allowing the research institutes to submit 'intention applications' to the relevant Dean. All submitted applications are then transferred to the Vice Rector for Research in order to be discussed in the Research Council.
- The concrete implementation happens in phase two in conformity with the selection and recruitment procedure and the Academic Structure Regulations.
