The Spanish Ministry of Science will launch two calls for postdoc applications in January, one for recent Doctors (the "Juan de la Cierva" call, which opens on January 17th, and closes on February 7th) and one for people who have already done postdocs before, the "Ramón y Cajal" call (which opens on January 11th and closes on February 1st). Both Spanish and foreign people can apply, and they need to have the backup of a research center.
The COALESCE Lab will be happy to support one application in each call, for people who would like to come work with us in Barcelona on topics of social networks, social cohesion, and polarization. This might be a great opportunity to collaborate on the ERC project "A network science approach to social cohesion in European societies".
For your information, Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral fellowships are for two years, for (Spanish and foreign) people who obtained their PhD between January 1st, 2022, and December 31st, 2023 and who have not been doing their doctorate at the same university (i.e., UAB in our case). You can find the call text and all regulations here. The Ramón y Cajal fellowships are for five years, for (Spanish and foreign) people who obtained their PhD between January 1st, 2013 and December 31st, 2021 and who have worked abroad (not in Spain) during some time. People with this latter fellowship have often moved into fixed jobs at the same university later on. You can find the call text here.
We would advise that you only apply if you have at least 2 well-indexed journal articles in the case of Juan de la Cierva, and at least 4 in the case of Ramón y Cajal. If you are interested in applying, or would like further information, please contact early with Miranda Lubbers (firstname.lastname@example.org). We can arrange help with the application procedure.
