Juan de la Cierva Incorporation Grant Awarded

I have been awarded a Juan de la Cierva incorporation grant for work contracts from the Spanish State Agency for Research. The funding program finances the recruitment of young researchers for a period of three years. Furthermore, the recipients receive a lump sum to cover research expenses. During the three years the recipients can strengthen the skills they have acquired in their previous postdoctoral training at Spanish research centers.

The selection is based on a competitive process on the basis of the curricular merits of the applicants and the scientific-technical record of the research team they wish to join. The acceptance rate was in this edition 15 percent and I was the highest ranked candidate in the area of social sciences among 63 applicants. My grant will start in February 2021.
