The CALIFA survey offers a four-years PhD fellowship associated to the
reseach project "CALIFA : CALAR ALTO LEGACY INTEGRAL FIELD AREA
SURVEY" (AYA2012-31935; P.I: S.F.Sánchez), to work at the Instituto de
AstrofĂ­sica de Andalucia (IAA-CSIC, Granada, Spain).

CALIFA has recently published the most significant evidence of the inside-out mass assanbly in galaxies, by the analysis of the spatially resolved starformation history of galaxies (Perez et al., 2013, ApJ Letters) .

The spatially resolved distribution of masses, at the current cosmological time, for the analyzed galaxies is shown in the following figure.

The 1st of November we have released for its public use the 200 datacubes corresponding
to the first 100 objects observed with CALIFA. The details of the released data can
be found in the corresponding publication:
