IMDEA Nanociencia is inviting Expressions of Interest from potential international predoctoral researchers who are interested in applying to  “la Caixa” INPhINIT incoming doctoral fellowships.  

The doctoral fellowship programme INPhINIT ”la Caixa” Foundation is devoted to attracting talented Early-Stage Researchers—of any nationality—who wish to pursue doctoral studies in Spanish or Portuguese territory. Sponsored by ”la Caixa” Foundation, it is aimed at supporting the best scientific talent and fostering innovative and high-quality research in Spain and Portugal by recruiting outstanding international students and offering them an attractive and competitive environment for conducting research of excellence.

The doctoral INPhINIT fellowships offer a highly competitive salary and complementary opportunities for training on transferrable skills (in annual training sessions), temporary stays in industry, incentives upon completion of the thesis, among other elements that make these fellowships some of the most attractive and complete in Europe.

IMDEA Nanociencia offers an attractive international working environment and the researchers involved in the different programmes are running more than 40 operative research laboratories. This international atmosphere is coupled with strong interdisciplinary research which is organized around 5 programmes: (i) Organic Nanosystems for light harvesting and energy conversion, (ii) Fundamental properties of 2D materials, (iii) Nanomedicine against cancer and infection; (iv) Nanomagnetism and critical raw materials and (v) Solid state quantum devices for information technologies. 

For this call, we welcome expressions of interest in the following projects:

Who can apply?

  • Research experience: Candidates must be in the first four years of their research career and must not have previously obtained a PhD degree or be in a position to apply for one.
