The application deadline has passed and the selection process started. More information for the new call-out will come up during the Autumn 2023. Stay tuned!
The Serra Húnter Programme (SHP) offers tenure-eligible lecturer and associate professor positions at the public universities of Catalonia (Spain). The Spring call of the SHP is on Marc-April and the Autumn call on September-October. Positions are available in different fields of study and vary in each call. Successful candidates will be hired by the university offering the position and are expected to cooperate with existing groups and/or develop new lines of research, complementary to those already in place. Please note that these positions also entail teaching obligations.
In order to participate, candidates must hold a PhD and are expected to have an excellent record of publications in good venues in their fields, have had international exposure and have participated in competitive research projects. They should also have teaching experience. For associate professor positions, candidates must have at least three years of post-doctoral experience.
Before submitting an application, please check here the academic requirements that candidates need to meet.
For tenure-eligible lecturers, a fixed-term full-time contract is offered for a period of up to five years. At the end of the contract, the university undertakes a process to open a permanent position as associate professor provided that the candidate passes a positive evaluation. For associate professors, a full-time permanent contract is offered. At the end of their academic career, associate professors can have doubled their starting salary if they receive positive assessments in teaching and research merit evaluations. Lecturers may also receive salary supplements for teaching and research merits. In addition to salary, contracts include health, retirement and unemployment benefits.
The selection process has two steps. The first step, international call, enables candidates to apply for the accreditation required to participate in the second step. The second step, competition at the university, is the actual recruitment competition process, handled by the university in accordance with its own rules. Please find further details about the process here.
