Minimum requirements are a Ph.D. degree obtained preferably before 2017, with at least four years of international exposure at pre-doctoral and/or post-doctoral level.

Candidates in an expansive phase of their academic career, with strong research record and outstanding leadership capabilities are encouraged to apply. Applications from women are especially welcome. ICREA researchers are required to make substantial contributions to their own areas of research and to have a strong impact in the Catalan research system by becoming fully involved and active members of the Catalan research community.

Successful applicants will have a permanent contract with ICREA and will work at universities or research centres in Catalonia.


The application requires all the following items:

1. An on-line form for personal and professional data, a statement on research interests (2000 characters maximum), a list of the 5 most relevant publications, a statement of purpose (3000 characters maximum).

2.  A single .pdf file (free format, maximum 15 pages and up to 4 Mb in size) containing the candidate's CV in English.

3. The contact details of four referees, of which at least two must submit reference letters in English (PDF format). The reference letters must be uploaded by the referees before 2:00 pm (Central European Time) on Tuesday, 9 March 2021.

To that effect, the system will generate links to be distributed by the candidate to each referee.

4.  An expression of interest document from at least one host institution. Candidates must directly contact each institution (university or research centre in Catalonia) that they are interested in, and obtain the institution's support. The host institution's expression of interest form must be downloaded directly by the institution, using the link provided by their candidates. To that effect, the system will generate links to be distributed by each candidate to the host(s) institution(s). At the link, the institution will find instructions to submit the form (both electronically and by post). The form in both formats must be received by ICREA before 2:00pm (local time) on Tuesday, 9 March 2021.
