The String Theory group at IGFAE ( University of Santiago de Compostela) invites expressions of interest from candidates who would like to apply for:

1. Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships

2. Postdoctoral Junior Leader Fellowships ("la Caixa" Foundation):

These 3-year fellowships offer a competitive salary and a research grant of 115,500 EUR (usable for example for hiring a PhD student or postdoc). The program has two calls:

- Incoming: For applicants who have resided in Spain for 0-12 months in the last 3 years.

- Retaining: For applicants who have resided in Spain for more than 12 months in the last 3 years.

Applicants must have been awarded a PhD between two and seven years prior to the call's closing date. The selection process is managed by the "la Caixa" Foundation. For more information, visit the Postdoctoral Junior Leader Fellowships website , where details of the latest calls can also be found.

Expected Dates for "la Caixa" Fellowships:

- July 2024: Call opens

- October 2024: Call deadline

- January 2025: Pre-selection results and interview invitations

- March 2025: Interviews and publication of results

- May-December 2025: Job contracts commence

Candidates interested in applying for either Marie Curie or "la Caixa" fellowships to join the String Theory group at IGFAE (Maria de Maeztu Centre of Excellence) should contact Riccardo Borsato ( and provide:

- A message indicating the call of interest ("la Caixa" Incoming/Retaining, Marie Curie, or both)

- A short CV

- A short abstract of the planned research proposal (half a page)

We welcome expressions of interest at any time, but priority will be given to those received before July 15, 2024. Our group will then advise the candidates during the process of the proposals writing. Given the interesting conditions of the two fellowship programmes, we encourage expressions of interest also from people who are not necessarily applying in Fall 2024.
