About the employer
BCAM is a world-class research center on Applied Mathematics with a focus on interdisciplinary research in the frontiers of mathematics, attraction and training of talented scientists, development of new numerical and simulation methods, interaction with industry, and promotion of scientific and technological advances worldwide.
Located in the Basque Country, it benefits from a long industrial tradition, and it is linked with the French Atlantic corridor, a region of excellence in Applied Mathematics. This context contributes to the task of building an excellence research center. BCAM counts with around 60 researchers from over 20 different countries with experience in some of the most prestigious research centers on their area, organized in 5 research areas and an administrative support team composed by 7 people.
BCAM is a young research center that is facing its consolidation phase. In this sense, the scientific strategy of the center is based on three Scientific Platforms that have been set up in order to establish an interdisciplinary system capable of facing the challenges of Mathematical Science in a broad manner by bringing together Mathematics, Engineering and Sciences:
Core in Applied Mathematics: PDE, Numerical Analysis, Fourier Analysis, Algebraic Geometry, Probability and Statistics.
Computational Mathematics: Modeling andcomputer simulations using numerical, stochastic and Monte Carlo methods.
Applications of Mathematics to Industry, Social Sciences and Health Sciences.
Regarding human resources management, BCAM core values rely on people as its main asset, so, the continuous evolution of the HR strategy is key for the success of BCAM in order to adapt to the needs of the people, so BCAM decided to launch the HR Excellence in Research process (as the implementation of the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment) to enhance the efficiency, effectiveness and impact of the actions that BCAM should undertake to provide an attractive and supportive environment to researchers. BCAM was awarded with the HR Excellence in Research in May 2016.
