The University of Granada is offering ten Athenea3i research grants with a view to attracting highly talented postdoctoral researchers to our institution. The grants, which will last for three years, aim to enrich the research careers of distinguished postdocs, giving them the opportunity to conduct high-level international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral research (the philosophy of the 3 “i”s). The call for applications will run from 4 to 28 September 2018.

This innovative fellowship programme will equip successful candidates with new knowledge and skills by means of personalised career mentoring plans, as well as the chance to carry out research at some of the most prestigious universities and companies in the world. Selected candidates will play a key role in building bridges between the University of Granada and these other national and international institutions, fostering knowledge transfer, the exploitation of results, and the development of future research with significant value for industries and businesses. In this regard, the programme places special emphasis on the applicability of research outputs, science for society, and public engagement.

Applicants can propose their own line of research within the following knowledge areas: environmental sciences and chemistry; economics, social sciences and humanities; information science and engineering; life sciences; and physics and mathematics. The fellowship provides a gross monthly salary of €3,000, plus a maximum of €1,300 per month, depending on factors such as family status, mobility and/or training costs, etc.
