UAB-CIE Sphere centres looking to hire 31 researchers

The P-SPHERE Programme will recruit experienced researchers through two calls, with the first being launched in November this year. This project is funded by the Marie S. Curie H2020 Programme and involves UAB-CIE Sphere Research Centres, including ICN2.

The European project P-SPHERE is run by the UAB as beneficiary and involves various UAB-CIE centres, including ICN2. 48 postdoctoral contracts of 3 years' duration are to be awarded and the fellows will conduct their research at the UAB-CIE Sphere, the excellence-driven cluster centred on the UAB campus. Their research will be based on five multidisciplinary research domains: Food, Health, Smart and Sustainable Cities, Cultural Heritage and Materials & Energy.

The first call for applications is to be made this November when 31 research fellowships will be offered. The second call, in autumn 2016, will offer 17 fellowships. 

Together with the UAB, the following centres are participating in the project: the Computer Vision Centre (CVC), the Institute of Agrifood Research and Technology (IRTA), the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), the Institute of High Energy Physics (IFAE), the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA-CSIC), Barcelona Institute for Microelectronics-National Centre for Microelectronics (IMB-CNM-CSIC), and the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC).
