Junior Leader is the fellowship programme of LCF, addressed to excellent experienced researchers of all nationalities willing to join one of the outstanding research centres in Spain or Portugal in the STEM area (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The Junior Leader programme offers a total of 60 fellowships divided into two calls, and provides new training and mobility experiences.
