Deuteron-induced reactions at low and medium energies: Consistent direct and statistical model analyses

C. Project description

C5. Resources and budget.

The human resources to be involved for carrying out this project, together with the corresponding percent of their full time of work program, are (a) the project leader (75%) and a second senior researcher (25%), (b) a 100% postdoctoral (PD) research associate to be advertised and hired for the project period, (c) a technician (~8%) for hardware maintenance, and (d) an economist (8%) for financial management of the project. The corresponding salaries/month, without taxes, will be (a) ~2700 euro/month for experienced researchers, (b) 1800 euro/month for PD position, (c) 1000 euro/month for the technician position, i.e. 80 euro/month for this project cost, and (d) 1000 euro/month for the economist position, i.e. 80 euro/month for this project cost. An advertisement for the PD position will be posted on http://www.postdocjobs.com/ and http://www.euraxess.ro/ the day after the financing contract of this project will be signed. Alternatively, PhD student and master scholarships, at 1100 and respectively 700 euro/month, will be made available on subjects already posted at http://www.nipne.ro/careers/topics/docs/Teme_studenti_2010_IFIN-HH.doc. The sum of these costs, including the ~28% taxes for personnel salaries, amounts to 270000 lei/year.

The mobility cost concerns firstly ~4*6-days attendances of meetings and conferences (~6600 euro), for networking activities as well as to disseminate the project results. Secondly, there is planned a PD ~6-weeks visit per year (at ~5000 euro) at a large scale facility, SPIRAL-2 at GANIL or n_TOF at CERN, for close connection with the experimental work providing the support of the basic theoretical activity within this project in Bucharest.

The existing, relevant infrastructure includes mainly (a) two powerstations Dell Inspiron 531 AMD Athlon64X2 4200, (b) one Server Intel Pentium 4HT 3.2GHz, (c) two notebooks DELL Latitude D620 Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz; and (d) one notebook Toshiba M30 Intel Centrino 1.6Ghz. These devices are operated in good conditions but since 3 to 5 years. Therefore their gradual replacement with up-to-date similar equipment is needed and planned at an average cost of ~2300 euro/year, to keep the computing level of the project team, at the level requested by the project objectives.

The overhead is calculated as a 50% percentage of the direct expenses, according to the IFIN-HH justification uploaded on webpage www.uefiscdi-direct.ro during this funding proposal submission. While IFIN-HH is the largest national institute in Romania, funding of its administrative activities is made only by research-projects overheads that are distributed based on distribution keys determined by IFIN-HH in accordance with the policies applied under the Order 3055/2009.
