The RMA does in itself not fund any research projects. Our departments have their own research axes. To get their projects funded they introduce proposals to the Royal Higher Institute for Defence and other funding institutions [European Commission (EC), European Space Agency (ESA), European Defence Agency (EDA), Belgian scientific policy (belspo)…]. Once we get the funding we can start the project. If we need a researcher to do the job we publish a job description.
There are two possibilities depending on the funding organism. If the project is funded by the Belgian Defence the researcher can be recruited and employed either by the General Directorate Human Resources of the Belgian Defence or by the RMA Patrimony. In the first case the job description is published on www.selor.be, in the second one it is published via ACTIRIS (www.actiris.be), the web site of the RMA (vacancies) and other suitable channels, e.g. the heads of renowned laboratories in the field. If the project is funded by a third party the researcher is always recruited and employed by the RMA Patrimony.
In all cases you will be recruited on a contractual basis.
If you want to join us you have to react to the one or several of our job descriptions. Our rules stipulate that we have to organise competitive recruitments and do not allow us to answer positively to unsolicited applications. In such cases we will refer you to our job descriptions.
If you are recruited by the General Directorate Human Resources of the Belgian Defence your employer will be the Belgian State and your financial status will be determined by laws and royal decrees (you can get more information about your financial status at www.fedweb.be).
If you are recruited by the RMA Patrimony you will not be employed by the Belgian State and your financial status including legal benefits will mainly be determined by the BoD of the RMA Patrimony.
