The Alliance of 4 Universities offers 24 grants for UAB's PhD graduates interested in going to one of the other member universities (Autónoma de Madrid, Carlos III and Pompeu Fabra).
Each university offers two postdoctoral grants to graduates of the other three universities in an aim to increase mobility amongst researchers of all four centres.
Each University from the A4 will select two additional doctors from any other national or international University, including doctors coming from one of the three other awarding Universities. At least one out of the two places will be preferably assigned to candidates coming from Universities belonging to the Agreement by the A4U with Indian or Russian Universities.
The duration of the stays is two years and grant holders will commence their stays between 17 September and 17 October. The gross annual amount of the grant is ¤25,383 and payment is made in 14 instalments per year.
Applicants must be holders of a PhD received from 1 January 2009 to 15 October 2012. The date of the degree is the date of the reading and approval of the doctoral thesis. Applicants cannot have been hired or have received grants at the university they apply for in the two years before this call.
Applications and related documents must be submitted from 28 March to 27 April. On 28 May 2012 A-4U will publish the provisional list of selected candidates and on 13 June the final list of candidates will be made public.
