Outline

ComFuturo is a public-private collaboration programme that aims to attract the best research talent, specifically first class young scientists, and to enable them to apply their valuable skills through the development of impact research projects in institutes belonging to CSIC. In line with this, the programme seeks for creative researchers who can propose relevant objectives of interest and who are capable of developing research of excellence through original and innovative research projects with high applicability and which offer solutions to relevant scientific, technological and societal demands and challenges.

 

Fellowship description, duration and allowances

The ComFuturo fellowship will have a duration of 36 months. It will include a full time position employment contract with CSIC and will consist of the following items: • Salary in the payroll for the fellow (including different allowances) Each fellowship will include a competitive salary, which will be composed of the items listed below. The indicated amounts include the employer’s social security contributions and taxes.

i. Living allowance of 51,684 €/year (4,307 €/month).

ii. Mobility allowance for moving and housing expenses of 4,992 €/year (416 €/month).

iii. Possible family allowance of 2,400 €/year (200 €/month) only to researchers with family obligations.

The gross remuneration that the fellow will perceive will be calculated on the basis of the abovementioned living, mobility and, where applicable, family allowance, after deduction of the employer's social security contributions, payable by the employer, and will remain the same for the three years of the fellowship. This gross salary is estimated to be around 39.000 - 43.000 €/year

 

Eligibility

Candidates must comply with the following eligibility criteria:

  • Present complete applications including all requested compulsory information and documentation.

 

  • Be in possession of a PhD degree at the time of the call deadline, having been awarded with their first PhD in the 10 years prior to the time of the call deadline (23 June 2022). The date of the defense act of the doctoral thesis will be considered to be the date of obtaining the doctoral degree. Should an applicant hold more than one doctoral degree, the above-mentioned period will be counted from the first degree earned.

 

  • Comply with the MSCA mobility rule (either standard mobility rule or the rule applicable to candidates who have had career breaks): Standard mobility rule: The researcher cannot have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Spain for more than 12 months in the three years immediately before the call deadline. Time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention, compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays, will not be taken into account (they will be considered as time spent in their country of usual residence, where they carried out their main activity). Short stays are characterised by the type of activity rather than by a specific number of days. A period can only be considered as a short stay if the researcher did not reside or did not have their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country during that period (such as holidays or participation to conferences). Career break mobility rule: applicable to candidates that have had a career break in research, i.e. they were not active in research for a continuous period of at least 12 months within the eighteen months immediately prior to the deadline for submission of proposals. In this case, the researcher cannot have resided or carried out the main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Spain for more than three years in the five years immediately before the call deadline. “Active in research” means being employed or holding a scholarship in research. Parental leaves and unpaid leaves of absence will not be counted as periods of active engagement in research, even if a formal employment relationship exists during these periods. Publication activities or mere association to a university (i.e. any other link to the university that is not considered as an employment contract or a fellowship agreement) are not considered as periods of active engagement in research either. Again, time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention, compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays, will not be taken into account.
