Contact people in ULG + overall useful web sites in ULg.ac.be
For foreigners arriving: Mrs Brigitte Ernst (firstname.lastname@example.org) is in charge of giving you information and manages the EURAXESS web site. She is very helpful and knows who to point you to for all of your incoming needs.
Human resources and personnel services have many people you may end up interfacing with. The contact for temporary scientific staff is normally Valerie Guillaume (Tel 5533 Valerie.Guillaume@ulg.ac.be)
For insurance purposes you have to announce in advance when you will be travelling and where. There is a .doc form on Dropbox which you can fill out with your coming conferences and visits. Have it signed by Matthieu and especially by the head of Department (Thierry Bastin for 2013-2015 email T.Bastin@ulg.ac.be).
If you have kids you are probably eligible to receibe child support (allocations familiales). Contact Ludivine Depas (email@example.com) to see about forms and so on. You need to have everyone properly registered and to obtain a “Composition de Menage” from the city hall (list of people living together in your family).
Obtaining the ULg badge
The badge is a document stating that you are an employee of ULg. Its main utility is to get a discount for the meals at the canteen, plus a number of other services (http://www.ulg.ac.be/cms/a_21891/fr/advantages-ulg).
To obtain the badge you need to:
- Upload you picture in the “Répertoire du personnel”, i.e. the personnel inventory where you should already have a record to edit: http://my.ulg.ac.be > répertoire
- send a badge email request to firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be notified by email when you can go and retrieve the badge at: Bât. B9 – Cellule sécurité, Sart-Tilman Campus, Bd de Colonster 2.
