Post-doc fellowships in Smart Energy (GOT ENERGY TALENT - COFUND)

GOT ENERGY TALENT (GET) is a post-doctoral fellowship programme co-funded by the EU as part of the H2020-MSCA-COFUND programme. GET is run by the University of Alcalá (UAH) as beneficiary of the action in collaboration with the University Rey Juan Carlos (URJC).

GET is an ambitious programme that aims not only to enable researchers to conduct their own excellent research project in the area of ‘Smart Energy’ focusing on Bioenergy and Smart Cities.

GOT ENERGY TALENT offers up to twenty one (21) fellowships under the second call. Out of the 21 fellowships available, UAH will recruit eight (8) fellows and URJC will recruit thirteen (13) fellows.

The postdoctoral fellows will have a full trans-national mobility experience.

Fellows will be able to decide whether to carry out a 24-month advanced research project or, under certain research lines, a 12-month advanced research combined project with a 12-month period devoted to applied research in one of the partner host institutions.


GET Fellowship applicants must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Nationality: GET fellowships are open to applicants of any nationality.
  • Experienced Researchers: applicants must be experienced researchers as defined by MSCA rules, i.e. applicants must be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience immediately prior to the date of the call deadline. Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree which would formally entitled him/her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is or was ever envisaged. 
  • Mobility Rule: the mobility rule of Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme applies, i.e. applicants must not have resided, or conducted their main activity (work, studies, etc.), in Spain for over 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the date of the call deadline. In this regard, compulsory national service, short stays such as holidays and time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention are not taken into account. Applications can be made by Spanish researchers as far as they comply with the MSCA mobility rule just described.

Deadline: 2 July 2019.
