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 GEMI (Grupo de Estudio sobre Migraciones Internacionales) is based at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and is interested in the study of international migrations and their impact on destination countries. Its research lines include migration policies, socio-cultural and labour market integration, migration theories, attitudes towards immigration and xenophobia. The group has a strong interdisciplinary character and includes sociologists, political scientists, social psychologists, anthropologists and economists. The group has established several collaborations with other research groups and within international networks, such as the IMISCOE research network. In addition, the group members have demonstrated an outstanding capacity in attracting external funding through national and international research calls. In 2018, the GEMI has received the ANECA ‘Evaluation of excellence’ for the research activities performed since 2013.

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.
