The Institutions and Political Economy Research Group (IPERG), at the University of Barcelona (UB) aims to sponsor candidates for the Beatriu de Pinós Postdoctoral Program by the AGAUR (Catalan Agency for Management of University and Research Grants) 

The Beatriu de Pinós (BdP) program offers talent-attraction postdoctoral positions lasting 3 years for researchers with at least 2 years of postdoctoral experience outside Spain. Candidates should be, in the date of the application, carrying out research or teaching activities in institutions outside Spain. Individual candidates must have obtained a doctorate qualification between 1 January 2014 and 31 December 2019. 

IPERGis a research center directed by Prof. Carles Boix. The main goal of IPERG is to foster the study of the role of institutions on the emergence of political order and stability, the political representation of individual and social interests, and economic development and redistribution. 

A second objective of IPERG is to encourage greater integration among various parts of the social sciences in Barcelona, particularly among political science, economics, sociology and history. Its fellows’ research is funded by the European Research Council, AGAUR, Fundació La Caixa, and the Spanish Ministry for Science and Innovation. 

Candidates with research interests on comparative politics, political economy and historical political economy are especially encouraged to contact us. Applicants are required to fill in their own application but also need the sponsorship of a research institution and the mentoring of an established researcher. At IPERG, we are willing to pre-select outstanding candidates in order to endorse them in the application process. 

Application Instructions: 

The candidates willing to apply for a Beatriu de Pinós Postdoc under the sponsorship of IPERG and UB should contact Anna Alsina (aalsinak@ub.edu) by email before March 21, 2022 with the curriculum vitae attached.
