Impact of Covid-19 on the Spanish Academic Job Market in the Social Sciences and Humanities
The influence of Covid-19 on the Spanish Academic Job Market in the Social Sciences and Humanities has three main aspects:
- the state of emergency has meant a freezing of all public posts for a period equivalent to the duration of this state. Therefore, all deadlines to apply for research projects, funding for those projects or reports of results have been frozen for this period;
- because of the pandemic, a substantial amount of extra-funding for research has been launched to support the needs of current research during this period;
- a considerable number of new projects related to the social implications of the pandemic have begun.
Lastly, despite the three measures, the general situation of the job market has remained very similar to what it was previously.
