Now receiving applications! Visit our Jobs and Fellowships portal to join ICN2 in changing the world with nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Are you looking for an exciting opportunity within a challenging project? The Institut Catala de Nanociencia i Nanotecnologia (ICN2) just opened 9 PhD Fellow positions and 1 Technician position, the first ones to be funded through the recently awarded Severo Ochoa Program. The selected candidates will focus on joint activities of at least two ICN2 Groups, pursuing common scientific objectives by taking advantage of their complementary expertise.

ICN2 is a highly specialised and renowned research centre. Its research lines focus on the newly discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the fascinating behaviour of matter at the nanoscale. The Institute promotes collaboration among scientists from diverse backgrounds (physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering) to develop basic and applied research, always seeking interactions with local and global industry. ICN2 also trains researchers in nanotechnology, develops numerous activities to facilitate the uptake of nanotechnology by industry, and promotes networking among scientists, engineers, technicians, business people, society, and policy makers.

The Severo Ochoa Program, sponsored by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, aims to identify and support Spanish research centres that are among the world's best in their specialty. This award is the highest recognition of centres of excellence in Spain, and is granted following a rigorous evaluation by international scientific committees of project proposals submitted by Spanish research centres.

Thanks to the Severo Ochoa Program, more new positions will be open in the near future. Stay tuned if you have not found an offer matching your profile. Competitive Postdoctoral, Graduate Student and Technical Support Fellowship programs will be launched soon under the Severo Ochoa Program to enhance synergies within ICN2.
