• Candidates must have been awarded a PhD degree prior to recruitment ( From February 1st to April 30th 2017).
  • Candidates are eligible for a period of 5 years following the award of the PhD degree at the time of recruitment. This limit will be extended in situations of documented career breaks such as maternity/paternity leave (up to 12 months per child), sick leave, forced displacement due to armed conflicts and military service for the necessary duration.
  • Candidates of all nationalities are eligible. However, if they have resided or worked in Spain for more than 12 months in the 3 years prior to recruitment, they are not elegible. Please note that that for refugees under the Geneva Convention, the refugee procedure (i.e. before refugee status is conferred) will not be counted as ‘period of residence/activity’ in Spain.
  • Candidates must be first author on at least one peer-reviewed publication.
  • Candidates must have an excellent command of the English language.

Candidates are allowed to apply for only one fellowship, as the fellowship cannot be held simultaneously with other fellowships of any kind. As such, fellows are expected to work regularly on their research project and regularly attend related scientific events, which implies full time dedication to the fulfillment of the research project. Other responsibilities than research, such as teaching, if minimal, can be carried out.
