Description of Hosting Institution (UJA – Spain)

Jaén University (UJA) was created in 1993 and is in the Top 50 of the world’s best young universities according to THE (Times Higher Education). This ranking analyzes aspects such as teaching, research work, the university’s international outreach, or integration into industry. Besides, the UJA has received the distinction of Campus of International Excellence in the fields of Agrifood (CEIA3) and Climate Change (CamBio), plus it also leads the Andalusian CEI project on historical heritage PatrimoniUN10.

Jaén University has five faculties (Social and Legal Sciences; Humanities and Education Sciences; Health Sciences; Experimental Sciences and Social Work) and two higher polytechnic schools for engineering (Linares and Jaén). In turn, these centers are organized into 35 departmentsIt also has three Postgraduate educational centers (Doctorate School, Advanced Study Center in Modern Languages and Postgraduate Study Center).

In regards to its research, there are five specialized centers at Jaén University. Besides, the full picture of the over 100 UJA groups covers the following research fields of expertise (https://www.ujaen.es/servicios/ofipi/uja-ri-expertise): Agrifood (AGR); Biology (BIO); Health (CTS); Social Sciences, Business, Law (SEJ); Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics (FQM); Humanities (HUM); Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (RNM); Information and Communications Technology (TIC); and Engineering Production Technology (TEP).

As far the UJA hosting offer is concerned, Prof. LUIS MIGUEL NIETO ALBERT (lmnieto@ujaen.es) would be willing to host post-doctoral researchers that are eventually funded through the H2020 MSCA-IF 2019 call for applications to be part of the following research team:

The Department of Geology (http://www10.ujaen.es/conocenos/departamentos/geologia) is made up by the next areas: Crystallography and Mineralogy, Pedology and Agriculture Chemistry, Stratigraphy, External Geodynamic and Internal Geodynamic. The members of these areas are locating in two centres, one in the Experimental Sciences Faculty (Las Lagunillas Campus from Jaén) and the Engineering School of Linares (Scientific and Technological Campus). The research made in our Department is assembled according to four research groups, named as RNM200 'Analysis of Basins and Environmental Geology', RNM325 'Geological Processes and Resources', RNM370 'Seismic Hazard and Recent Tectonic' and RNM374 'Earth Sciences and Geologic Engineering'. These research groups are made up by staff of Department and also by researchers of other departments of the University, as Chemistry, Physics, Mines Engineering, and from other Universities and research centers from national to international level (e.g. Granada University, Alicante University, Complutense de Madrid University, Universidade do Minho, Universidade do Coimbra, Bristol University, Open University, Liverpool University, IACT-CSIC-Spain, ETH-Zurich,…).

The research developed by these groups is varied, from topics related to sedimentary geology and geochemistry to basin analysis, study of igneous and metamorphic rocks, mineralogy, groundwaters and their relation in the seismic development, active faults, degradation of soils and cultivable soils, geodiversity analysis, etc.


Project description

According to the great diversity of research topics developed in the Department of Geology, it is difficult to stablish a specific and single research project for the entire Department. The interested researcher to develop their studies in our Department should indicate firstly which their research trend is and then, we could define more precisely, which the research group more appropriate with this trend is.


Application procedure

CV, Motivation letter and Summary of project proposal (250 words) by 14th June 2019 to ofipi@ujaen.es.
