Open PhD positions - INPhINIT, “la Caixa” Doctoral Fellowship Programme

The INPhINIT programme has launched its second call.  INPhINIT recruits per call 57 Early-Stage Researchers of any nationality, who enjoy a 3-year employment contract at the Research Centre of their choice among those selected and awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness ("Severo Ochoa" centres of excellence and "Maria de Maeztu" units of excellence) and the Spanish Ministry of Health ("Carlos III centres of excellence"). In addition, researchers establish a personal career development plan including trasnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility opportunities, and attend a full range of complementary training courses and workshops. INPhINIT relies on the European Commission's support through the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions - COFUND programme to recruit a larger number of researchers and achieve a broader impact, as well as to further pursue the highest standards for research training. 

In the first call, 3 PhD students (ANDREA URRU, to work with Miguel Angel González Ballester; MILICA VUJOVIC, to work with Davinia Hernández Leo and AMELIA JIMÉNEZ, to work with Gemma Piella) obtained grants in this program.
