La Caixa Doctoral Fellowships Call 2024 is now open

Kind of offer: 

The Institute for Theoretical Physics (IFT) in Madrid is offering PhD positions for talented Early Stage Researchers within the framework of the "la Caixa" doctoral INPhINIT fellowships, in the fields of String Theory, Quantum Field Theory, Quantum Information, Particle Physics, Astroparticles and Cosmology.

The doctoral INPhINIT Fellowship Programme - Incoming aims to support the best scientific talent —of any nationality— and foster innovative and high-quality research in Spain and Portugal by recruiting outstanding international researchers and offering them an attractive and competitive environment for conducting research of excellence.

These are 4 year PhD positions at the top scientific research centres in Spain, accredited with the Severo Ochoa or María de Maeztu excellence award. Candidates are expected to have completed their Master by fall 2024, to start their PhD studies. The international character of the program requires candidates to have not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Spain for more than twelve months in the three years immediately prior to the deadline for applications.

On top of a competitive salary, the position offers a dedicated budget for short scientific visits to other research centres. In addition, IFT offers additional funds to attend schools or international workshops related to the PhD research topics.        

The IFT is offering 10 projects within this Call:

  • - String black hole thermodynamics (Tomás Ortín) 
  • - Understanding black hole interiors with holography (Juan F. Pedraza)
  • - String Theory, Quantum Gravity and High Energy Physics (Miguel Montero)
  • - Hunting for new physics beyond the standard model of cosmology with Stage IV cosmological surveys and cutting-edge inference techniques (Yashar Akrami)
  • - Towards the identification of Dark Matter: particle models and experimental searches (Miguel Ángel Sánchez Conde)
  • - Neutrinos to explore the dark sector (David G. Cerdeño)
  • - Future Circular Collider: the ultimate accelerator for new physics discoveries (Juan Antonio Aguilar Saavedra)
  • - Surfing Gravitational Waves Beyond the Standard Model  (Ernesto Arganda Carreras)
  • - Gauge Theories with a Twist (Margarita García Pérez)
  • - Complex quantum systems and quantum information theory (Álvaro Martín Alhambra)

IFT and La Caixa Foundation are equal opportunity institutions. Applications by female scientists are specially encouraged.

Applications should be completed online
