The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) launches a new fellowship programme for incoming mobility, called CONEX – CONnecting EXcellence to UC3M. The main objective of CONEX is to provide excellent training and career development opportunities to researchers, so that funded researchers can make significant steps in their scientific careers.Through CONEX, researchers who are not resident in Spain are enabled to carry out a 3 years research project in one of UC3M’s research institutes or research groups.
CONEX programme will launch two calls for proposals to offer a total of:
- 8 fellowships with a duration of 36 months to Very Experienced Professors (>10 years research experience)
- 20 fellowships with a duration of 36 months to Experienced Professors (4 – 10 years research experience).
These two calls for proposals are expected to be launched on March and November 2014.
Researchers are fully free in the choice of their research topic, institute and supervisor/mentor, to allow for a maximum benefit of the fellowship on their career development.
