Position Description:    

Global Talent Fellowships 


The Galician Institute of High Energy Physics, IGFAE, at the University of Santiago de Compostela, invites applications for research associate positions within its Global Talent Program. 


This new program aims to recruit outstanding postdoctoral researchers capable of preparing and leading a competitive research project within the institute. Several positions are available in a very broad search that includes High-Energy Particle Physics (both theory and experiment), Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology (including gravitational wave research) and Nuclear Physics. Opening new lines of research, complementing those already existing at the Institute, is encouraged. 


The positions are for three years with additional funds for research and the possibility to supervise PhD students and postdocs. IGFAE will encourage successful candidates to apply to ERC and Ramon y Cajal programs. Permanent positions will be available for successful ERC applicants through the (external) Oportunius program. 


Interested candidates should submit 


  • A recent CV 

  • List of Publications 

  • Statement of Research Interest, including a small plan for the near future 

  • At least three letters of recommendation 


via Academic Jobs Online 


The positions will be open until filled with the deadlines 


  • December 1st - to be considered in the December meeting of the selection board 

  • March 20th - to be considered in the April meeting of the selection board 


IGFAE is a Maria de Maetzu Excellence UnitThe Global Talent Program belongs to this funding scheme. More information about the activities of the Institute can be found at
