Ikerbasque - the Basque Foundation for Science, launched in 2020 a call offering 20 Research Fellow positions for postdoctoral researchers. These five year Fellowships are directed to promising young researchers; they are intended to offer a track towards a PI role and independent research. The selected Fellows should be able to acquire the necessary skills for a research leader role in the future.
In this occasion, more than 50 independent external evaluators from 16 different countries participated in the evaluation process, under the coordination of the Ikerbasque Scientific Advisory Committee.
Ikerbasque endorses the European Charter for Researchers. Ikerbasque improves the career evaluation methods in order to create a more transparent, open, equal and internationally accepted system of recruitment.
