INphINIT “la Caixa” Fellowship Programme

The mission of the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) is to achieve the highest level of scientific and technological excellence in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Its research lines focus on the newly-discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the behavior of matter at the nanoscale. ICN2 has been awarded with the Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence distinction for two consecutive periods (2014-2018 and 2018-2022). ICN2 comprises 17 Research Groups, 7 Technical Development and Support Units and Facilities, and 2 Research Platforms, covering different areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Job Title:

INphINIT “la Caixa” Fellowship Programme

Area or Group of research:

Several Groups.

Description of Group/Project:

INPhINIT is a doctoral fellowship programme devoted to attracting international Early-Stage Researchers to the top Spanish research centres. This frame is addressed exclusively to STEM disciplines: life sciences and health, experimental sciences, physics, chemistry and mathematics. INPhINIT is promoted by the "la Caixa" Foundation with the aim of supporting the best scientific talent and fostering innovative and high-quality research in Spain by recruiting outstanding international students and offering them an attractive and competitive environment for conducting research of excellence.

ICN2 has published 10 PhD Student open positions under the INPhINIT programme:

  • Towards a new generation of smart windows based on chromogenic nanoparticles for energy saving in buildings (Prof.Daniel Ruiz-Molina). Video
  • Retinal Prosthesis to Restore Vision to Blind Individuals (Prof.Jose Garrido). Video
