Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) aim to support the career development and training of researchers in all scientific disciplines through international and intersectoral mobility.
The fellows carry out their own research project in collaboration with a host institution, which is indicated at the time of their application. Researchers of all ages, nationalities and scientific disciplines can apply.
Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA-PF) provide an extremely enriching experience, that enhance the career perspectives for researchers by developing new scientific competences and gaining international and collaborative research experience.
There are more than 200 UCM research groups interested in hosting researchers through MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships.
They are looking for ambitious, creative and scientifically curious researchers who meet the MSCA-PF eligibility criteria.
If you are ready to take the next step in your research career look into our university's host offers.
The Complutense University of Madrid as host institution, through a dedicated European Research Office, supports MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship candidates both in the application process and in managing the grant.
We offer, among other specific support services, an in-depth review of the proposal by experienced advisors: internal deadline to send the draft proposal to office is August 31, 2021.
The next section include information about several UCM supervisors that have expressed their interests to host MSCA experienced researchers in their research group. If you are interested in one of them, you should contact the corresponding Scientific Supervisor directly.
The web search application will help you find the offer that best suits your interests. Just enable and use the filters (click on the filter icon). You can search by faculty, research area, and research topic to be proposed / description of the research group (by means of keywords). Visit the links provided in the search results (table below) to display further information.
Some offers the supervisors ask for particular documents. If you are required to submit a project proposal or you do not know exactly what send to present your candidature, you can use our template 'One Page Proposal'.

Faculty of Veterinary Medicine
Our group (INMIVET) belongs to the Animal Health Department of the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), which has a long tradition of training young scientists. Our research combines basic aspects of Animal Health with frontier studies in Genetics, Molecular Biology and Cell Biology, a combination widely recognised as appropriate for the training of young veterinary scientists. Animal Health work is technically simple but intellectually demanding, while Molecular and Cellular Biology (including vaccine development) requires an appropriate combination of intellectual rigour, technical precision and manual skills. PhD students trained in these disciplines can gain rigorous and versatile experience that enables them to deal with a wide variety of biological problems. Working in our laboratory also involves the use of various animal models (mouse, dog, and hamster) and cell cultures for the study of host-parasite interactions.
The fact that this project involves collaboration between various research groups will allow the exchange of new information and experience between researchers from different scientific communities and with international collaboration. Moreover, once a year, INMIVET participates in out-research events such as the Science Week with workshops in which training researchers participate as teachers showing their finding to the society.
The general purpose of the propose project is to design and evaluated several approaches on the cutting edge of the leishmaniosis field for pathogenesis, virulence, vaccination or immunotherapy in order to overcome deficits of the traditional antigen-based or inactivated methods as well as toxic treatments.
We propose the fulfilment of a series of clearly defined scientist aims:

Tenure-Track Position for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellowships?
The "Plan de Actuaciones en Profesorado 2020-23 (ES)" of the Complutense University includes among its calls several options for further hiring of researchers with a PhD. All options require an excellent CV and being granted National Accreditation.
Among the requirements for the stabilization of a Researcher to Assistant Professor, it is required that the researcher has spent at least 3 years as a researcher hired by the UCM in a competitive public call.
Global Fellowships are open to researchers currently within or outside Europe who want to move to a Third Country for 1-2 years and then come back to the Complutense University for an additional year. Therefore, researchers who have been awarded a three-year Global Fellowship would be, after the end of the project and with the current regulatory framework, in a position to meet this condition.
In certain situations, it has been possible for a researcher with at least 2 years working at UCM to opt for a position as a junior Associate Professor.
