Apologies for cross-postings,

The annual Spanish call for post-doc and senior researcher positions in 
Spanish universities and research centres (known as "Juan de la Cierva" 
and "Ramón y Cajal" programmes) has been recently announced by the 
Spanish Ministry of Science [1]. These positions are open to young and 
senior researchers holding a PhD, independently of their nationality.

For young researchers ("Juan de la Cierva" programme), the process for 
applying to these 3-year positions requires them to contact a Spanish 
research group before submitting the proposal and making a proposal for 
a 3-year research project. These applications are evaluated according to 
the research profile of the candidate, to the quality of the research 
proposal and to the quality of the research group in which they are 
willing to carry out their research.

For senior researchers ("Ramón y Cajal" programme), the process for 
applying to these 5-year position is independently done by researchers 
and research groups, who apply separately. However, it is a good 
practice to contact each other in advance, so that both offers can match 
if the candidate is evaluated successfully, and so that enough positions 
are made available by the corresponding research group in case of 
several candidates positively evaluated.

In the context of this call, the Ontology Engineering Group at UPM 
(http://www.oeg-upm.net/) is looking for well motivated individuals who 
would like to carry out research in any of the research topics of the 
group (Ontological Engineering, Semantic Web, Linked Data, and Semantic 
e-Science) or who want to contribute their expertise outside these areas 
and widen the scope of research in the group. These individuals will be 
able to work in a group with a multicultural background, large 
experience in research, active participation in international R&D 
projects (with more than five EU projects currently running), and with a 
good publication and innovative software development record.

Official deadlines for both calls are February 10^th ("Ramón y Cajal") 
and February 17^th ("Juan de la Cierva"). However, in order to prepare 
the material in advance, we advise people to contact us, if interested, 
before January 31^st , 2011.  Please note that Spanish is not required, 
and English material is available for those interested in applying.
