FELLOWSEA is the Programme for Post-Doctoral Talent Attraction developed by the University of Vigo on behalf of the Campus do Mar network and co-funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission, which intends on building a particularly favourable environment to attract the best experienced researchers in marine and maritime science, technology and management.
FELLOWSEAoffers three year grants to 10 incoming experienced researchers, non-Spanish residents, providing the opportunity to develop her/his research project within the framework of institutions participating under Campus do Mar. Fellows will be hosted by one of the several research groups existing in the hosting institutions: the University of Vigo, the University of A Coruña, and the Spanish Institute of Oceanography from its headquarters in A Coruña and Vigo.
Researchers will be selected through a transparent and international evaluation process in which candidate merits will be evaluated qualitatively as well as quantitatively taking into consideration their whole range of experience. Candidates are asked to elaborate a research project related to the research topics shown in the “available positions” document, and will choose the research group of the hosting institutions where the research project will be undertaken. Fellows will work freely in their research project with the support and mentoring of the research group. Candidates will be informed during the application period about the available research groups at the host institutions in order to facilitate the definition of the Personal Training and Career Development Plan according to the specialization of the host institutions.
