CONEX-Plus is a training and incoming mobility program funded by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), the European Commission’s Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND Action, and Banco Santander. It offers 30 fellowships to experienced researchers with up to 6 years of postdoctoral research experience. The research fellows will undertake a three-year project freely chosen by them and carried out at UC3M and a non-academic secondary organization.

About the Fellowships

The CONEX-Plus programme offers 30 fellowships with a duration of 3 years and a gross annual salary of €41,203.62 in addition to other economic benefits, such as family allowance or research expenses. The fellowships are based on an individual, freely-chosen, research project that will be carried out at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and a non-academic secondary organization. Each fellow will have two supervisors (one from UC3M and another from the secondary organization) to support their career development.

The UC3M supervisor will support the fellow to propose and implement a research project.
