The ICFOstepstone Programme, a MCSA-COFUND action of the European Commission, will award INCOMING Fellowships of 36 months to outstanding students who wish to obtain a doctoral degree.
The Programme will bring together top-level training and teaching for young scientists in a stimulating, international and interdisciplinary environment. It will offer the possibility of mobility within a network of excellence, consisting in partners of national and international research institutes and universities, as well as industrial partners in the field.
The positions will be offered for a period of 36 months(*), formalized via a dedicated PhD-contract, with an annual follow-up aiming at confirming the satisfactory performance, assessed by the Thesis Director and the ICFO PhD Committee.
The ICFOstepstone Program is a Marie Sklowdowska-Curie-COFUND action under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (GA 665884 and 713729), and will be awarding a total of 45 INCOMING Fellowships to outstanding graduate students between 2016 – 2018.
(*) An extension beyond these 36 months, for an additional 12-months period, is possible, but will be covered by alternative funding
