The MIAS invites researchers of all nationalities. The MIAS regulations therefore require an open invitation for applications.

The MIAS’s scientific community as such consists of 20 researchers in Human and Social Sciences, whose stay in Madrid varies from 3 to 10 months, as well as longer-term resident researchers. There is a monitoring committee to provide scientific follow-up for all MIAS residents and facilitate cross-disciplinary exchanges among all the residents by means of periodic meetings, in direct contact with the scientific communities at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and at Casa de Velázquez.
The annual call for applications will value the presentation of proposals that enhance the international dynamism of the UAM-CEI International Campus of Excellence, as well as Casa de Velázquez’s research guidelines. The annual call for applications consists in several programs divided between annual and short-stays.
Global Professorships, University of Westminster, UK. Deadline for initial expression of interest: 9 December 2018.
The University of Westminster is now welcoming expressions of interest from outstanding international researchers not currently working in the United Kingdom to bring their research experience to the UK and the University as part of the British Academy’s Professorships Scheme.
Each four-year appointment is intended to be a complete project in itself and is expected to involve a specific research focus, although the Academy does not have a preferred model for the balance of time to be spent between research and teaching (which may vary over the course of the award and will depend on the UK host institution’s needs). Up to ten awards each year will be offered during the course of the programme.
