Faculty Permanent Position at Spanish National Research Council (CSIC)
(Last Posting, October 2019)


The Spanish Research Council CSIC is offering an intermediate rank permanent position on Quantum Technologies (theory or  experiments), with various possible destinations including  IFT,
IMB-CNM, ICMA, ICMM, ICMAB, and IFF.

The announcement is in Nature Jobs



It is a pre-call before the final position is opened for the most interesting profiles. CSIC seeks senior researchers (but not too senior) with the potential to create and lead a group on a research line that is complementary to the ones we currently pursue, but centered on Quantum Technologies.

The candidate would become part of the CSIC Platform on Quantum Technologies (https://qst.csic.es), joining a dynamic community of highly motivated colleagues, working to consolidate this field in the
Research Council, train new talent and, of course, do excellent research.
