Research Associate Professors
Research Associate Professors are typically researchers with several years’ experience who assume a position of responsibility in leading the day-to-day activities of our research teams.
Research Assistant Professors
Research Assistant Professors at IMDEA Networks Institute are bright researchers at the beginning of their research career, who want to establish a strong research group based on their research vision. They lead their own team of PhD Students and post-doctoral researchers and collaborate with top Research Associate Professors. Research Assistant Professors are not required to teach, so they can focus full-time on research if they so wish.
Post-doctoral Researchers at IMDEA Networks Institute are early-stage, post-doctorate researchers who are looking to establish their research career, working with top research professors and a team of young, pre-doctorate researchers (PhD students).
Visiting Professors share our research interests and spend their sabbatical with us for either one or two terms. They usually have several years’ post-doctoral research experience and are interested in extending their horizons with a temporary assignment in a new environment.
The Institute is managed by the Director – Dr. Arturo Azcorra – and the Deputy Director – Dr. Albert Banchs – . They are accountable to the Board of Trustees to whom they report regularly.
They are supported by a small administration team who are dedicated to the efficient and effective achievement of the Institute’s goals and to providing the levels of support required by its team of international researchers.

Research Engineering & Support
The Research Engineering & Support unit at IMDEA Networks is dedicated to supporting the continued growth in our research capacity and maximizing the impact of our research output by providing specific technical and professional expertise and assistance to ongoing research endeavors in a variety of ways. Research Engineering & Support personnel work either at the level of the entire Institute, or closely with researchers and their groups. There are roles with an engineering background that take care of the design, installation and maintenance of the IT infrastructure. Other roles may, for instance, provide administrative or operational support to project or lab management.
Typical jobs include systems administration, research (software and/or hardware) engineering, project or research administrator and laboratory technician. These positions are similar to their industry equivalents. They enable our employees to work on cutting-edge research problems and technology in a stimulating and innovative environment.
