ICREA Senior and ICREA Academia calls:
ICREA offers permanent positions in the Catalan research system for senior researchers. The selected researchers are offered a position as ICREA Research Professors (equivalent to tenure) and become ICREA employees. ICREA researchers go through an evaluation process (promotion) at regular intervals throughout their entire careers. This is our most important and best-known call.
The ICREA Acadèmia call for applications is a grant to university professors who already hold permanent positions in the Catalan research system. The grant is for five years and is intended to promote the awardees’ research by relieving them from teaching duties.
There are many other predoctoral and postdoctoral grants.
We are also open to short research stays and sabbaticals or any other forms of collaboration nationally and internationally.
We offer also different job positions, normally linked to the projects run by the researchers of the IAUB, and this can imply predoctoral, postdoctoral or technical personnel offers.
Explore our web page, examine our research lines and projects, and meet our researchers. See if your research and ideas match with any of us.
