The First Call of the COUFND Marie Skłodowska-Curie DOCtoral training programme in Functional Advanced Materials (DOC-FAM) will open on October 1st. In this call, a total of 11 fellowships are available to Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) in order to conduct a PhD in one of the research centers involved in the programme, for a total of 36 months.
The available research projects of this 1st Call include projects at ICMAB, IREC, ALBA Synchrotron and IMB-CNM, within the following research topics:
The project aims to attract excellent and talented young researchers in an extensive and dedicated training programme, which includes secondments, workshops, schools and non-research oriented skills. Each fellowship covers lilving and mobility allowances, PhD tuition fees and research, and training and networking costs.
It is a great opportunity to start research projects in Excellent Research Centers in Materials Science in Barcelona. If you want to do a PhD in some of the most challenging areas of science, check the eligibility criteria, and apply now!
DOC-FAM is an excellence DOCtoral training programme in Functional Advanced Materials awarded to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) in the H2020-MSCA-COFUND-2016 Call and coordinated through the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB) in collaboration with several partner research institutions from the area, four of them contributing to the co-funding of the programme: the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology (ICN2), the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC), the Barcelona Microelectronics Institute of the National Microelectronics Centre (IMB-CNM-CSIC) and ALBA Synchrotron (ALBA-CELLS). During the 60 months of duration of the programme, two calls will be launched for the recruitment of 22 Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) during 36 months each.
DOC-FAM has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 754397.
ICMAB acknowledges financial support from the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, through the “Severo Ochoa” Programme for Centres of Excellence in R&D (SEV- 2015-0496).
