The Complutense University of Madrid launched the first call for the postdoctoral recruitment programme UNA4CAREER

The Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) will launch the first call for the postdoctoral recruitment programme UNA4CAREER on 13 July within the framework of its research internationalisation strategy.

UNA4CAREER is a programme that involves hiring experienced researchers to develop research, training and knowledge transfer projects, with a total budget of 7.4 million euros, and which is co-financed by the UCM and the European Union through the COFUND call for Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions in Horizon 2020.

Through this first call, the Complutense University of Madrid hopes to hire up to 20 postdoctoral researchers to join one of the University’s 94 research groups classified as “excellent”, according to the external evaluation carried out by the Spanish State Research Agency.

The main objective of UNA4CAREER is to allow participating researchers to broaden their scientific and non-academic competencies and improve their employability, as well as to access career development opportunities with a European dimension.

To guarantee this objective, the essential elements of the funded projects must be interdisciplinary, intersectoral and international. In this sense, UNA4CAREER is structured on the Una Europa – University Alliance, of which the UCM is a member.

Universities participating in Una Europa (*) will ensure that the funded projects fulfil this priority by collaborating with a wide range of research groups and non-academic entities associated with them that will welcome researchers for long-term research stays.
