PhD Fellowship Programme at BSC-CNS


21 Jan 2014 Barcelona - The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) is looking for young scientists from the national and international community who wish to do their PhD in a stimulating environment, rich in technological resources and campus life. The closing date for applications is Friday, 28 February, 2014. The different areas for PhD involve Computer Sciences; Computer Applications in Science & Engineering CASE; Earth Sciences; and Life Sciences.

Since 1982, the "la Caixa" Foundation has offered several fellowship programmes aimed at allowing students to undertake postgraduate studies in Spain and abroad. Over the years, thousands of students have advanced their training thanks to "la Caixa" Foundation fellowship. In 2008, the "la Caixa" Foundation launched a new programme addressed to national and international students. As part of this programme, each year fellowships are awarded to students who wish to complete work toward their doctoral degrees.

BSC-CNS is at the service of the international scientific community and industry that require High Performance Computing resources. The multi-disciplinary research team and the computational facilities - including MareNostrum - make BSC-CNS an international centre of excellence in e-Science.

Under a collaborative Framework Agreement, the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and the "la Caixa" Foundation continue the fellowship programme started last year with a 2nd call. This programme aims to help the recruitment of talented students from across the world by doing their doctoral thesis work in one of the accredited "Severo Ochoa" centres of excellence. The objective of this joint activity is to boost the research capacity of the best research institutions in Spain. For this year, the "la Caixa" Foundation has selected the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) to offer four grants more for the academic year 2014-2015 addressed to PhD students. This grant is renewable up to four years.

BSC-CNS is looking for young scientists from the national and international community who wish to do their PhD in a stimulating environment, rich in technological resources and campus life. BSC-CNS encourages applications from highly motivated engineers and computer scientists with outstanding qualifications. Successful candidates will join research groups with top-level scientists and will carry out their research in cutting-edge areas of Computer Sciences, Life Sciences, Earth Sciences and Computer Applications in Sciences and Engineering.
