Ikerbasque opens a new call for the Research Fellows programme to hire 20 postdoctoral researchers
- The call for applications will remain open until the 15th of March.
Ikerbasque – the Basque Foundation for Science, has launched a new call offering 20 positions for postdoctoral researchers. These positions are financed by the Basque Government, the European Comission and the host institution where the researcher will develop his/her research.
These five-year fellowships are directed to promising young researchers and they are intended to offer a track towards a PI role and independent research.
The selected persons should be able to acquire the necessary skills for a research leader role. Ikerbasque is committed to offer a long-term career to the research community: Fellows in their 5th year can be assessed for a permanent position.
The applicants must have their PhD completed between 01/01/2013 and 31/12/2021. Applications from women are especially welcomed; the eligibility period will be extended under special circumstances such as maternity.
To date, the Ikerbasque Foundation has hired 106 researchers of 15 different nationalities through this call, of whom 55 are men and 51 are women.
