___________________________________

The Department of Education, Universities, and Training of Xunta de Galicia is preparing a call of research contracts, on a competitive process, to attract and retain research talent in the category of distinguished research staff in the University System of Galicia (SUG).

The call for the «Research Talent Attraction Program» will allow the submission of a maximum of 10 applications per Galician University. Therefore, the University of Vigo launches a process of pre-selection in order to prepare the applications to compete with the rest of Galician Universities.

The objective of this pre-selection process opened by ECOBAS is to select 2 research candidates to submit an application to this call.

Characteristics of the contracts

Each contract will consist of the hiring of a distinguished researcher for a maximum of 4 years, not extendable

The maximum annual amount of each grant is € 90.000:

  • € 50.000 in salary and social costs
  • € 40.000 for the development of the research line (20% of indirect costs will be subtracted from this amount)

Previous considerations

According to the call, these contracts will take into account the relative weight of women in the proposals presented in order to enhance their number and to reduce the imbalance between women and men researchers in the SUG.
