Posting date: 15.10.2020
|Type: || Postdoctoral fellowships |
The Department of Environmental Chemistry at IDAEA-CSIC seeks national and international talented researchers to join its Faculty at a postdoctoral or senior level.
IDÆA is a multidisciplinary research institute focused on the scientific understanding of key environmental challenges facing society. The Institute aims to build on the existing strong cohort of active researchers by attracting exceptional new researchers who can contribute to achieving the strategic targets of our research priorities. This is being done by using open competitive calls to hire young postdoc researchers and by attracting national and international talented researchers with proven high-profile success (e.g. ERC grants) at a postdoctoral or senior level. These researchers will constitute a nucleus for future projects and collaborations with EU and International Institutes.
We are looking for applicants with expertise and research interests in Environmental Chemistry, with special focus on contamination and the biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in aquatic environments. The Department is especially interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.
With the Severo Ochoa award one to three-year contracts will be funded, with extra financial support (20,000€) provided to help the beginning of the new researcher’s activities. In addition, new research staff will receive help and advice on administrative issues (social security, taxation, etc.), accommodation, family support in health, education, leisure and culture issues. IDÆA is based in an attractive greenfield site in Barcelona, is extremely well served by public transport, and lies conveniently close to both the international airport and high speed train station.
Please title the email: “Talent Attraction”.
Interested applicants should submit by email to the Head of the Environmental Chemistry Department (Sergi Diez
) a short CV (1-2 pages) together with a 2-page document describing their main research line and activities to be developed at IDÆA.
