The MSCA COFUND DOC-FAM program, coordinated by the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), has closed its first call for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie predoctoral grants.
In total, 10 Early Stage Researchers (ESR) will start their PhD: 5 at the ICMAB-CSIC, 2 at the IREC and 3 at the ALBA Synchrotron, during the 2018-2019 year and for a duration of 3 years.These three centers offer a multidisciplinary, multicultural and stimulating environment, with access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities for the personal and professional development of the Early Stage Researchers.
The projects (and supervisors) in which they will participate are:
In October 2018 the second call for proposals will open, offering 12 fellowships distributed between the ICMAB-CSIC, the ALBA Synchrotron, the IREC, the IMB-CNM-CSIC and the ICN2.
The DOC-FAM program ("DOCtoral training programme in Functional Advanced Materials") is the first COFUND program of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (H2020-MSCA-DP-2016) granted to the State Agency National Council of Scientific Research (CSIC) in all its history.
This excellent training program is coordinated by the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence, in collaboration with several institutions of its environment: ALBA Synchrotron; Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2); Institute of Energy Research of Catalonia (IREC) and Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM-CSIC).
