Research Assistantships Research Assistantships

The María de Maeztu Strategic Research Program supports a number of research assistantships to students enrolled in any of the DTIC-UPF master programs, linked to the projects executed in the context of the program and involving the cooperation of two researchers from different DTIC-UPF groups. These internships offer an excellent opportunity to work in ongoing research projects, with the potential to become topics for the final MSc thesis.

After the first call in 2016-17, the MdM program continues to support research assistant positions cofunded by other projects at the Department.

General conditions

Financial: 5.000 EUR gross for the whole internship.

15h/week between Nov 1st - June 15th of the corresponding academic year (exact dates and distribution of work load during the year can be adjusted in agreement with the supervisors)

Please apply directly contacting the indicated supervisors before October 14th 2016
