Minimum requirements are a Ph.D. degree obtained preferably before 2010, with at least four years of international exposure at pre-doctoral and/or post-doctoral level. Only very strong candidates with an outstanding research record and excellent leadership capabilities will be considered.
Successful applicants will have a permanent contract with ICREA and will work at universities or research centres in Catalonia. ICREA researchers are required to make substantial contributions to their own areas of research and have a strong impact in the Catalan research system by becoming active members and leaders of the Catalan research community.
The ICREA position is not compatible with a part time permanent contract outside the Catalan research system. Scholars who have held a permanent position in the Catalan research system for longer than 12 months on the deadline of this call will not be accepted as candidates.
Successful candidates will be required to join the host institution no later than September 2015.
Salaries will be in line with those paid at Catalan universities. ICREA research professors will be subject to an evaluation of their research progress and general performance after a three-year period and subsequently every five years. The evaluations will be carried out by external evaluation committees that will assess scientific production as well as research activity. A positive evaluation will lead to a salary increase.
In successive years (2015 onwards), as it is expected that number of positions will be similar, there will be one call in odd years (2015, 2017…) for the areas: Experimental Sciences & Mathematics and Technology & Engineering; and another call in even years (2016, 2018…) for the areas: Life & Medical Sciences, Social & Behavioral Sciences and Humanities.
Declaration of interest: IISPV’s deadline: April 10, 2014 (email@example.com). Official opening date: Open. Full proposal: IISPV’s deadline: May 2, 2014.
Applications must be submitted electronically via this website before 2:00 pm (Spanish time) on Tuesday, 6 May 2014.
