The Programme for Post-Doctoral Talent Attraction to Campus do Mar, FELLOWSEA, is a programme developed by the University of Vigo (UVIGO) which intends on building particularly favourable environment to attract the best experienced researchers in marine and maritime research.
Within the proposed 48 months co-funding period (36 months of fellowship), FELLOWSEA will offer to 10 incoming experienced researchers, non-Spanish residents, the opportunity to develop her/his research project within the framework of a vast network of institutions participating under Campus do Mar, an International excellence initiative in marine and maritime themes for the service of Society.
Fellows will have full trans-national mobility experience accessing to research facilities of the partners FELLOWSEA, and been hosted by one of the several research groups existing in the hosting institutions: the University of Vigo (UVIGO), the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC), the University of A Coruña (UDC), the Institute of Marine Research of the Spanish Council of Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Spanish Institute of Oceanography from its headquarters in A Coruña and Vigo (IEO) and Northwest Association for Metallurgical Research (AIMEN).
Researchers will be selected through a transparent and international evaluation process in which candidates merits will be evaluated qualitatively as well as quantitatively taking into consideration the whole range of experience of the candidates.
Trans-national mobility of researchers will help FELLOWSEA hosting centres to achieve their talent attraction aims and furthermore to transform the Galicia Region in one of the main Transnational Campus of International Excellence based in ocean pillar (the strategic aim of the Campus is to extend its influence to the whole Galicia-Northern Portugal Euro-Region). Ocean related research has a vital economic relevance for this territorial context and even at European level.
