Description:

ICREA opens 20 senior research positions in the following areas:

  • Humanities
  • Social & Behavioural Sciences
  • Life & Medical Sciences

Successful applicants will be offered a permanent contract with ICREA to work at universities or research centres in Catalonia.

ICREA research professors are subject to an evaluation of their research progress and general performance after the first three-year period and, subsequently, every five years. The evaluations are carried out by external evaluation committees that assess scientific production as well as research activity. Positive evaluations lead to salary increases. ICREA positions are not compatible with permanent positions outside the Catalan research system

Requirements

Minimum requirements are a Ph.D. degree obtained preferably before 2018, with relevant multinational exposure at pre-doctoral and/or post-doctoral level.

Candidates in an expansive phase of their academic career, with an outstanding research record and leadership 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, active members of the Catalan research community.

Request

The application requires all the following items:

1. An on-line form for personal and professional data, a statement of your research done in the last five years (2000 characters maximum), a list of the 5 most relevant publications, a statement of purpose explaining your choice of institution(s) and your future research plan (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. The reference letters must be written in English (PDF format) and uploaded by the referees before 2:00 pm (Central European Time) on Tuesday, 8 March 2022. To that effect, the system will generate links to be distributed by the candidate to each referee.

4. An Expression of Interest (EOI) from at least one host institution. Candidates must directly contact each institution that they are interested in joining (university or research centre in Catalonia), and obtain an EOI. The EOI form must be downloaded directly by the institution(s), using the link(s) provided by the candidate. 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 download, fill and submit the form. EOI(s) must be electronically signed by a legal representative of the institution, and must be uploaded to the ICREA system before 2:00pm (local time) on Tuesday, 5 March 2024.

Please note that only electronic EOIs are accepted in this call. Paper EOIs are no valid for submission.
