Professor Monica Relaño Pastor, from the Department of 

Theoretical Physics and Physics of the Cosmos at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for an Athenea3i Research Fellowship in 2018 at this University. The information about the Fellowship conditions, how to apply, Eligibility Criteria, Selection Process, Evaluation Process, etc. is available in https://athenea3i.ugr.es/. Please note that applicants must comply with the Eligibility Criteria (https://athenea3i.ugr.es/?page_id=23).  

Brief description of the institution:

The University of Granada (UGR), founded in 1531, is one of the largest and most important universities in Spain. It serves more than 60000 students per year, including many foreign students, as UGR is the leader host institution in the Erasmus program. UGR, featuring 3650 professors and more than 2000 auxiliary personnel, offers a total of 75 degrees through its 112 departments and 28 centers.

UGR is also a leading institution in research, located in the top 5/10 of Spanish universities by a variety of ranking criteria, such as national R&D projects, fellowships awarded, publications, or international funding. UGR is one of the few Spanish Universities listed in the Shanghai Top 500 ranking (http://www.arwu.org/), and it is also well recognized for its web presence (http://www.4icu.org/top200/).

Internationally, we bet decidedly by our participation in the calls of H2020, both at partner and coordination. For the duration of the Seventh Framework Programme, the UGR has obtained a total of 66 projects, with total funding of 17.97 million euros, and for H2020, until 2015, more than 25 projects with total funding of more than 6 million euros. Our more than 3,000 researchers are grouped into 365 research groups covering all scientific fields and disciplines.

Brief description of the Centre/Research Group

The group consists of 2 Professors, 6 young staff members and one PhD student. The general field of research in the group is the properties and the evolution of galaxies in a cosmological context, covering from interstellar medium in galaxies to primordial magnetic field and the microwave background radiation. The research experience of our group is both observational and theoretical. We have ample experience in astrophysical observations in a wide range of wavelengths, their data reduction and analysis. In addition, some members of our team work in theoretical aspects of astronomy and in numerical simulations of the structure and dynamics of galaxies. 


Our group has successfully supervised four PhD thesis, nine Master thesis and seven Bachelor thesis during the last 5 years. The wide experience of the senior members of our group in complementary areas of galaxy research guarantees a solid education for young researchers. Our research work maintains active collaborations with groups from Universities and research centres in Spain (e.g. IAA, IAC, UAM, UCM) and foreign countries (mainly Europe and USA). Our group is also involved in several large international collaborations, the largest being HerM33es, PLANCK, and Califa.
