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'.

The NIL acronym (Natural Interaction based on Language) identifies a group of researchers and practitioners whose interests converge towards the development of interfaces based on language for modern day IT applications for modifying or finding information, issuing commands, or present output results in a way easy to understand. Various Artificial Intelligence techniques contribute towards this goal. The mainstay of NIL is obviously a strong Natural Language Processing component. However, the complexities of language interactions require the use of additional techniques of Knowledge Representation, Expert Systems, Case-Based Reasoning, Evolutionary Algorithms, User Modeling and Computational Creativity. NIL arises in 2005 to provide a minimal infrastructure to house colaborative projects between researchers at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Nevertheless, it is open to contributions from researchers affiliated at other institutions if they are interested in the stated goals. At the same point, NIL is born with the overall goal of developing the technologies that it researchs on to the point where they can be used for practical applications. For this reason, we are always on the look out for opportunities to test the applicability of our work in real life situations.

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.
