Evelina Leivada has been awarded the prestigious Ramon Y Cajal grant

Fabulous news just in: Our very own Evelina Leivada has been awarded the prestigious Ramon Y Cajal grant – with the unbelievable score of no less than 100%!!! The grant provides a salary and research funding for five years and will lead to a permanent position at a Spanish university (not clear yet which one – Evelina will be negotiating with several labs).

What a fantastic career development, as Evelina is completing her MSCA grant here at The University of Tromsø now in August. (We are very happy that she will be staying on at UiT until November, though).

Congratulations, Evelina. Well done! And so well deserved!!!
