R2STAIR. 4 Postdoctoral COFUND-MSCA positions in Prehistory and Human Evolution studies

4 Postdoctoral grants in Prehistory and Human Evolution studies

As an MSCA fellow, the researcher will work in her own project under supervision during a two-year contract. R2STAIR H2020-MSCA-COFUND-2020 Programme is planned to boost the career prospective of junior R2 fellows (PhD holders who are not fully independent yet) by training their previous skills through the entire research life cycle in Prehistory and Human Evolution studies (including processes of cultural heritage enhancement and societal impact).

IPHES-CERCA aims at improving its gender balance, both in its selection panels, as well as among the recruited fellows, in accordance with its Gender Equality Plan. The target of accepted researchers in the R2STAIR Programme is a 50/50% women/men ratio. The success ratio of women/men will be monitored throughout the Programme development showing whether specific measures should be implemented to target one of the genders.

R2STAIR has the collaboration of different Partner Organisations (Research Institutes, Universities, Museums and City Councils), willing to host specialized secondments, as well as to provide short and medium internships, with specific first-hand training in ongoing processes of heritagisation promoted by IPHES-CERCA http://www.iphes.cat/. Also, according to the ‘Individual driven mobility principle’, the applicants in accordance with their supervisor/s are free to choose other alternative entities to complete a mandatory secondment and internship during the duration of the project.

R2STAIR Programme offers a list of 22 potential main supervisors from IPHES-CERCA senior research staff, covering research in 7 areas. In accordance with the ‘Individual driven mobility principle’, the proposals can include other co-supervisors. This will be regulated by a previous agreement with the main IPHES-CERCA supervisor and an official letter of acceptance from the proposed co-supervisor. All the information can be found: http://www.iphes.cat/r2stair-msca-cofund.
