The Spanish government has announced that it is converting more than 1,400 temporary public research jobs into permanent positions.
The 1,454 positions are all in public research organisations, Spain’s science ministry announced on 25 January. It said that the move would be the biggest such consolidation of science jobs in Spain for at least two decades.
Most of the positions—960 of them—will be at the CSIC, Spain’s national research council, the ministry said. Of the rest: 261 will be at the Centre for Energy, Environment and Technology Research Ciemat; 93 at the Carlos III Health Institute; 54 at the Spanish Institute of Oceanography; 50 at the Geological and Mining Institute; and 36 at the National Agrarian Research Institute.
