GESI is an university research group on international security associated to the Department of Political Science and Public Administration from the University of Granada (UGR). This research group is made up by professors from several Spanish Universities who have been teaching and researching in the field of Security and defense. These are professors in the Master’s Degree in Strategic and International Security Studies from the UGR, mostly from the department mentioned above. The professors mostly belong to the Department of Political Science from the UGR as well as the Departments of Political Science and of Administration from the Universities of Jaén (UJA) and Pablo de Olavide in Sevilla (UPO).

The call for research assistants in GESI is open at any time throughout the academic year.
