POST-DOCTORAL AND RESEARCH CAREER POSITIONS
Research careers in UPM are based on the Ministry of Science and Innovation (Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación, MICINN) programmes “Juan de la Cierva”, “Ramón y Cajal”, and “I3”. They are available, in that order, to applicants according to experience and curriculum strength.
In addition, UPM has created a post-doctoral programme, “Juan de la Cierva UPM”, with the same conditions and structure as those offered by the Ministry of Science and Innovation. The I3 programme has the institutional commitment to grant permanent positions to experienced researchers which have received a positive evaluation of their activity from MICINN. All UPM programmes include the opportunity of short-stage mobility schemes.
Moreover, national and international (eg: FP7) RDI projects, in which UPM takes part, offer research positions that are advertised on their project´s websites.
The employment conditions offered by UPM in all the modalities mentioned above comply with the European Charter for Researchers and The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (2005/251/CE).
