Postdoctoral Fellowships

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.

Complutense as a Host Institution


The Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) is a public research university located in Madrid, and one of the oldest universities in the world (founded in 1499).

The UCM enrols over 80,000 students, almost 6,000 faculties and more than 3,000 administration and service staff and consistently ranks as one of the top universities in Spain. 

Research Groups

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.

European Office

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.

Expressions of Interest

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'.

Group description
The UCM research group, known as CADEDIF, founded in 2006 has been scientifically very productive since its foundation and has made many important contributions foundation, as it can be easily checked considering the number of publications in international high ranked journals that are indexed in the JCR. It, therefore, provides a stable and continuous research activity environment in the area of Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Analysis for anyone interested to join the group.

CADEDIF consists of 6 scientists who are affiliated to the UCM and 7 Researches from other universities.

Scientific productivity:
The members of the group maintain a remarkable scientific activity, that is reflected in the amount and quality of the articles published. The group has published 157/207 research articles (according to Scopus / Google scholar of the UCM bibliometric Portal) in journals in the area of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Multidisciplinary Physics, Multidisciplinary Sciences and Physics-Mathematics.
The complete list can also be access in the following database: https: //
Besides these articles we have also published 18 monographs including textbooks and books on mathematical dissemination.
Research topic
Our scientific interest lies in a field located between Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) and Infinite Dimensional Dynamical Systems, from a theoretical or numerical point of view.
Our current research interests are based on results that have been previously obtained, and we try to go further expanding the frontiers of knowledge.
They can be classified into the following topics:

1. problems of homogenization and reticulated structures,
2. formation of singularities,
3. non local problems,
4. higher order problems, hyperbolic systems,
5. subcritical and critical elliptic problems.
Research area
Mathematics (MAT)
Candidatures: requirements
The candidate should have a strong expertise in Nonlinear PDEs, mainly of elliptic and parabolic type from an analytical and/or numerical point of view.

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.
