ICFO offers PhD-fellowship positions to well-qualified graduate students, who wish to obtain a doctoral degree in any of the research topics covered at ICFO.
The positions are offered in the scope of the FLIGHT Program, a MCSA-COFUND doctoral program explicitly focused on intersectoral research training in collaboration with Industrial or Clinical Partners.
Our PhD Fellowship Program welcomes applications from individuals with a degree in a field of mathematics, science, engineering or medical sciences related to the ICFO research activities.
Our PhD-program brings together top-level training and teaching for young scientists , benefiting from the extensive course offerings of local universities and focused instruction by ICFO professors, in a stimulating, international and interdisciplinary environment . PhD-students have the opportunity to take advantage of our network of excellence , consisting in partners of national and international research institutes and universities, as well as industrial partners in the field.
Important: Candidates who fulfil the MSCA mobility requirements (i.e. NOT have resided or carried out their main activity in Spain for more than 12 months during the 3 years prior to the call deadline), are encouraged to apply to the FLIGHT Fellowship program. Candidates applying to this call will be automatically considered for the fellowships they will be eligible for in the currently open call: PhD-positions available within the ICFO PhD Program (spring 2023) : https://jobs.icfo.eu/?detail=733
Recruited Fellows will have a choice of 3 PhD tracks:
- Clinical to develop a project in collaboration with one of Clinical Partners
- Industrial to develop a project in collaboration with one of Industrial Partners
- Enhanced to develop a project with one of ICFO’s Research Groups
Fellows in the Industrial and Clinical tracks will be embedded in both organisations, undertaking secondments of 6-18 months at the Partner during their Fellowship.
Research projects in the Clinical and Industrial tracks on offer in this call are the following:
- CT001: New neuro-monitoring tools for theranostics in neuro-critical care.
Prof. Dr. Turgut Durduran at ICFO and Dr. Maria Poca and Dr. Juan Sahuquillo at Vall d’Hebron Institut de Recerca (Barcelona)
