Further information on research areas of interest and ongoing research projects can be found in the Annual Reports of the CIBERDEM consortium and through the Scientific Articles published by our members.
Fellow CIMP researchers will be employed by CIBERDEM under a contract basis, with 40 hours of work per week (excluding lunch time), 22 days of annual leave (plus statutory days), healthcare coverage provided by the Spanish Social Security system and a Private Accident Insurance.
Please note that all the candidates must either be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience at the corresponding deadline for submission of proposals.
Eligible applications will be forwarded to the Selection Committee, which will be integrated by the Scientific Director of CIBERDEM, several members of the International Scientific Committee of CIBERDEM and several other experts external to CIBERDEM, experienced in the diabetes field. Each application will be reviewed by two members of this committee, and the final score will be obtained by consensus. If any evaluator has a potential conflict of interests with an applicant, another member of the Selection Committee will take care of the corresponding evaluation.
