Extension regulations

A)     Care responsibilities
An extension on the grounds of care responsibilities will be granted only if you can show that you are taking or have taken parental, maternity or care leave, or that you have combined a part-time research appointment with care responsibilities. The care responsibilities must have related to a child/children (aged 12 or under) who was/were part of your own household

Pregnancy/parenting leave women:

  • Female researchers who have given birth to a child/children are granted a standard extension of 18 months per child, irrespective of the length of the pregnancy and/or parental leave and irrespective of when the children were born. 

Parental leave men:

  • Male researchers are granted an extension of up to 1 year per child born in the period since the doctoral award, but only to compensate for formal reductions in working hours. A distinction is drawn between children under the age of 4 and children aged between 4 and 12, see the scheme below. 
  • Parental leave for men must concern children (max. age 12 years) who are part of the own household. It concerns children who are blood relatives or relatives by marriage in the first degree 
  • Male researchers should demonstrate the formal reduction in working hours by submitting documents from the Personnel & Organisation department of the employer.
