Tuesday, 12 January, 2021

The Autonomous Community of Madrid (CAM) has announced the 2020 call for support to 4-year and 5-year postdoctoral contracts at universities and public research institutions in Spain, within the program Atracción de Talento, for recently granted PhDs and starting in 2020.

For more information and the full text of the calls (in Spanish), please follow these links: -

As applicants need to be endorsed by a Spanish institution, the Institute of Public Goods and Policies (IPP) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) has opened a screening process to identify and endorse outstanding candidates. While the researchers need to fill out their own application on the websites above mentioned, it is necessary they first contact directly with the IPP researchers who may be potentially interested in endorsing them.

There exist two modalities of application: Junior, 4 years (Mod. 2) and Senior, 5 years (Mod. 1). At the IPP we are looking for candidates who hold the requisites of Mod. 1 ONLY. These are:
- PhD thesis defended between 2008 and 2015
- Minimum of three years of pre- or post-doctoral experience outside Spain.
- Affiliation in a non-Spanish institution during two out of the past three years.

The CSIC-IPP invites applications in any of the six research areas of the institute: i) Environmental Economics, ii) Rural Geography, iii) Citizens, Institutions and Policy, iv) Social Policies and Welfare State, v) Systems and Policies for Research and Innovation, and vi) Scientometrics.

Post-docs should join R&D projects and teams to develop their own activity under the supervision of a CSIC permanent researcher. We invite potential applicants to check the Institute’s website to know more about our staff and research agendas:

Applications including the CV of the applicant and confirmed interest by a permanent IPP researcher, should be sent to direccion.ipp [at] before 4th of February 2021 (14:00 pm). Yet, we encourage the potential candidates to contact the Director or the IPP researchers who may be interested in endorsing them well ahead of this deadline, to get support and guidance through the on-line application process.

Please note that this deadline is BEFORE the official deadline of the call at the CAM.
