Almost 60% of the 2,528 places included in the extraordinary public employment offer of 2018 will be for science, a sector "particularly affected" by the temporality to which the Government wants to strengthen and give stability. This was announced today by the spokesperson of the Executive, Isabel Celaá, at the press conference after the meeting of the Cabinet.
The royal decree approved today by the Council of Ministers provides for a public employment offer of 2,528 places, of which 2,041 will be to stabilize temporary staff in the General State Administration (AGE).
58% of this call, that is, 1,454 places, will be to stabilize employment in science, a sector that the Executive wants to strengthen so that Spain can have a "much more competitive" progress.
The Superior Council of Scientific Investigations (CSIC) will be the most benefited, with 960 places, which is equivalent to 9.48% of the workforce, followed by the Center for Research, Energy, Environment and Technology (CIEMAT), which will have 261 places (21.9% of Template).
The rest of the places will be shared between the Carlos III Health Institute (93 places, 10.8% of the workforce); the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO) (54 seats, 9.5% of the workforce); the Geological and Mining Institute (50 places, 14.2% of the workforce), and the Institute of Agrarian Research (36 places, 4.7% of the workforce).

In addition to ending the high rate of temporary employment in the Public Research Organizations (OPI), this public offer of employment -which has not been held for more than a decade- will make it possible to rejuvenate the staff of the research centers.
The Public Investigation Organisms (OPI) "have suffered especially the temporary work due to the freezing of public employment in recent years, with this Royal Decree we end up with this situation in the Opis, which will also allow us to rejuvenate the staff," he said. to Efe the Minister of Science, Innovation and Universities, Pedro Duque.
"Spain needs researchers committed to the social and scientific fabric" but, for that, we must ensure the necessary stability to "remain settled in the country," concluded Celaá.
