Juan de la Cierva and Ramón y Cajal Fellowship Programs at the High Energy Physics Group of Universidad Complutense de Madrid
The High Energy Physics Group (Grupo de Altas Energías - GAE) at Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) is seeking outstanding candidates to apply for the Juan de la Cierva and Ramon y Cajal highly competitive Spanish fellowship programs. The specifics for each of the programs follow:
Postdoctoral Fellowship program Juan de la Cierva - Formación (Training):
- A two-year contract for candidates who obtained a PhD between January 1st 2020 and December 31st 2021.
- Deadline: February 3rd, 2022.
Senior Postdoctoral Fellowship program Ramón y Cajal:
- A five-year tenure track contract for experienced candidates.
- Deadline: February 8th, 2022
The GAE-UCM has an ample trajectory in the fields of experimental astroparticle physics and high energy astrophysics, with scientific interests ranging from the study of active galactic nuclei, pulsars to dark matter searches and unidentified gamma-ray sources. The group participates in the ground-based gamma-ray facilities CTA and MAGIC and collaborates in the space-based Fermi - Large Area Telescope. The successful candidate is expected to join and develop most of her/his work within these international collaborations.
For the Juan de la Cierva - Formación program, GAE-UCM must act as host, and thus it will perform an internal selection. Therefore, if you are interested, please send us at email@example.com a cover letter and a CV (including the contact details for at least one referee), with deadline January 25th, 2022. It is worth noting that this year’s call offers twice the number of contracts of last year´s and the existence of previous similar calls in Spain make this one particularly attractive.
The GAE-UCM is part of IPARCOS (Institute of Particle Physics and the Cosmos), a leading institute of the Complutense University, with activities related to Particle and Nuclear Physics, Astrophysics, and Instrumentation.
