Call for Postdoctoral Scientist Positions

The Iberdrola Spain Foundation, in collaboration with the Research Executive Agency (REA) of the European Commission, has created an Energy for Future (E4F) postdoctoral program. It is a program of 5 years (2 calls of 24 months each) promotes the participation of 14 PhD researchers (per call) who currently reside abroad for the development of research projects focused on the main technologies associated with the energy transition and the green transformation of the economy: photovoltaic and wind energy, evolution of the electric vehicle, energy storage solutions and consolidation of smart grids. Specifically, this program, in order to facilitate geographical mobility and the transfer of knowledge between the academic field and the industrial sector, contemplates a reception period of 18 to 21 months in universities and research centers together with another period of professional stays of 3 to 6 months at Iberdrola headquarters in the US, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Spain. The research will be carried out in 15 European and American universities: Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Rochester Institute of Technology, in the USA; National Autonomous University of Mexico; University of Strathclyde and Imperial College of London, in the United Kingdom; Université de Bordeaux, in France; and Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems, in Germany. n Spain, eight centers will participate: Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Universidad Carlos III, Universidad de Cantabria, Universidad Pontificia de Comillas, Universidad del País Vasco, Universidad de Salamanca, IMDEA Energía and Polymat – Basque center for Macromolecular Design and Engineering.

The first call for Energy for Future will open in July 2021. All those interested in attending the call to develop their research project within our research group should contact its director: Diego González Aguilera (daguilera @ usal.es)
