PhD Students are one of ICFO’s main assets. We offer competitive fellowships and an excellent PhD program to students who wish to start a research career at a top European institution. We welcome applications from individuals with a variety of backgrounds, including optics, physics, mathematics, electronics, engineering, chemistry and biology.

Students who wish to be admitted to the ICFO PhD program must apply through the official fellowship call for PhD positions. Applications will be evaluated following a standardized selection process. All candidatures are automatically considered for the available funding schemes for which they are eligible.
