PhD positions funded by La Caixa

CampuS theoretical group offers mentorship in four different research topics to international students who wish to develop a research project,  oriented to obtain a PhD diploma, at the Condensed Matter Physics Center (IFIMAC-UAM) and at IMDEA-Nanoscience (Fundación IMDEA-Nanociencia).


The PhD positions are funded by the doctoral fellowship programme INPhINIT, which is devoted to attract international Early-Stage Researchers (ESR) to top Spanish excellent research centres. INPhINIT is promoted by the “la Caixa” Foundation and relies on the European Commission’s support through the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions – COFUND programme.

The fellowship shall cover a 3-year doctoral employment contract, a top up contribution for other training expenses, and complementary training on transversal skills. In addition, phd candidates may opt to a price amounting to 7.500 € if they got the diploma earlier than 6 months after the finalization of the contract.

For more information on the fellowship programme, please visit: Deadline for application is February 1st, 2018.

For more information on the research topics, check the documents below:

  • Theoretical Attosecond Electron Dynamics: from biomolecules to solids (IMDEA-Nanociencia) – Description
  • Ultrafast molecular dynamics induced by attosecond pulses (IFIMAC-UAM) – Description
  • Chemical-physics properties of new 2D materials (IMDEA-Nanociencia) – Description
  • Graphene-based materials: Exploring new physical properties based on theoretical simulations (IFIMAC-UAM) – Description

In case you are interested in this fellowship, you should check the fullfillment of the excellence criteria and other specific call requirements (research experience, training, language and mobility requirements) here.

Students with spanish nationality not fullfilling the mobility requirements can apply to a fellowship to carry out a doctorate at a Spanish University. The deadline to apply is February 27, 2018. Mor information here.

For any question on the research projects or if you became selected for the face-to-face evaluation stage, please, do not doubt to contact the group projects manager beatriz..
