The Institute has a large research staff made up of contracted and assigned researchers from all over Spain and other countries.

At Working at the ICAC section, you can see the calls for researchers that are currently open.

It is also possible to join the ICAC as a researcher or collaborating or visiting researcher:

Associate researchers

These are members of research staff who belong to other research centres (university teaching staff, museum curators, etc.) and voluntarily join an ICAC research team to take an active part in the Institute’s research.

The associate researcher position allows the ICAC to benefit from the collaboration of researchers from other institutions through the corresponding inter-institutional agreement. Researchers who do not belong to any institution can also be assigned as associate researchers.

Collaborating researchers

These are researchers who are interested in the ICAC’s research and wish to cooperate with it. As this type of researcher becomes more involved in the ICAC’s tasks, they may become an assigned researcher.
