When you reach Degree as a PhD, all researcher are empowered to undertake research autonomously, lead projects and apply for competitive calls. However, in reality, their training process continues and they need to gain experience. To this end, he undertakes temporary research stays at prestigious research and development centres, which help him to develop skills and knowledge. Experienced doctors also periodically need time to update and boost their research. To this end, they seek to join well-established research teams, where they can familiarise themselves with new research methodologies.
To cater for these two profiles, the University of Navarra is launching this pioneering programme in Spain: the first Postdoctoral Programme at speech. It is a degree scroll of the School of speech aimed at PhDs from any background. Its programme consists of 30 ECTS credit credit (750 hours) for a period of 9 months, with a total cost of 6,000 €.
The Postdoctoral Programme at speech can be fill in at one time, or spread over a maximum of three years, up to fill in the 9 months of activities (e.g. through three periods of three months or other formulas to be agreed upon). During the programme, the postdoctoral researcher is supervised and supported by a senior researcher from School of speech, assigned according to his/her thematic specialization program . Under the guidance of this mentor researcher carries out one or more research projects, aimed at producing contributions to conferences and high-level scientific publications. At the end of the programme, the postdoctoral researcher presents his or her record of activities and results to a commission made up of senior researchers from the School of speech, who certify the awarding of the degree scroll to the candidate.
