INPhINIT 2020 "la Caixa" fellowship programme

The doctoral fellowship programme INPhINIT "la Caixa" is devoted to attracting talented Early-Stage Researchers-of any nationality-who wish to pursue doctoral studies in Spanish or Portuguese territory. Sponsored by "la Caixa" Foundation, it is aimed at supporting the best scientific talent and fostering innovative and high-quality research in Spain and Portugal by recruiting outstanding international students and offering them an attractive and competitive environment for conducting research of excellence.

The doctoral INPhINIT fellowships offer a highly competitive salary and complementary opportunities for training on transferrable skills (through the collaboration of leading entities such as Vitae and Oxentia), temporary stays in industry, incentives upon completion of the thesis, among other elements that make these fellowships some of the most attractive and complete in Europe.

INPhINIT collaborates with the top research centres in Spain, which will host INPhINIT fellows in one of their PhD programmes. More information about the programme here.
