Call for Applications

Every year, the CRIS Cancer awards two research grants covering a four-year stage programme for contracting scientists and clinical investigators to develop their training and research activity for three years abroad (Outgoing Phase) at any hospital, research center or university, and a fourth year at any research institution in Spain (Return Phase). The CRIS Out-Back Programme includes the option for a secondment to another institution anywhere in the world (that must be different from the return institution), but it is also open to short visits (not longer than 4 weeks) during the two stages to other institutions.
The programme invites applications from all scientists who have completed a PhD or those that can demonstrate at least 4 years of experience in cancer research prior to the year of the call for applications.
Candidates must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host institution of the Outgoing Phase for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the programme’s call deadline.
Once the application has been submitted, the choice of host institutions will be binding. Candidates must present a letter of interest from the host institutions of the Outgoing and Return Phases together with the application.
The programme will effectively begin when the management of both hosting institutions and the candidate sign the agreement with CRIS.

The programme runs for three years in its first phase, international training phase (outgoing phase), and one more year during the return phase, at any Spanish institution. Additional to research training at the host institutions, CRIS Out-Back Programme includes training sessions and webinars that will run quarterly during the development of the programme, and mentoring sessions that will run annually.
Each fellow will have three supervisors: two primary supervisors, one at each host institution (outgoing / return phase), and an external co-supervisor (assigned by CRIS Cancer). Additionally, in case of secondment, they will also have a secondment supervisor.

Programme resources

The maximum grant awarded will be €280,000, which will be spread over four annual installments of up to €70,000 a year.
The four maximum annual installments of €70,000 will include:
a. Salary: Gross €55,000 to cover labor costs of each beneficiary incurred by the hospital, research center or university that employs or will employ said individual. This amount
includes local taxes contributions and any other amounts payable by the institution, as well as the gross remuneration of the beneficiary.
b. Allowance (optional):
→ Family allowance €1,200 gross per annum for each of the researcher’s dependent children, up to a maximum of €2,400 and as long as they are under 18 years of age
(or can prove a certificate of dependency). Family support will be determined on the date the researcher joins the center and it will be reviewed annually at the time of
programme renewal. In case of no applicability of family allowance, these funds could be added to the research costs.
→ Mobility allowance of €1,250 for installation in the destination city for Outgoing and Return Phases.
c. Costs associated with the research project up to the €70,000 maximum annual grant, including:
→ Expenses related to the research project such as the acquisition of scientific consumables.
d. Other costs: Publications, dissemination, registration for scientific conferences and congresses or travel and expenses of other training/mentoring sessions related to
Programme.
This subsidy will be managed by the institutions on behalf of the beneficiary and must be justified independently. CRIS Cancer will sign an agreement with both host institutions. Host institutions will receive the programme allowance and will manage the distribution of the different budget items. The budget distribution will have to be duly justified annually to CRIS Cancer.
The contractual relationship between the applicant and the institution shall comply with the law as it stands at any given time.
The investigator is the named recipient of the finance and will be recruited by the host institutions.
