Fostering research careers in LIGHT sciences

Objective

FLIGHT is a 60-month MCSA COFUND doctoral program that aims at recruiting outstanding early stage researchers (ESRs) to carry out ambitious PhD-projects at ICFO in one of 3 tracks: Standrard, Industrial or Clinical. It will offer 30 highly competitive fellowships of 36 months duration, through 3 calls, to outstanding international candidates, and equip them unique capabilities to become future leaders in academic, industrial and clinical research.

FLIGHT aims to fostering career mobility of researchers beyond the academic sector. The program includes an extensive training program of multidisciplinary scientific workshops and training events where all Fellows are exposed to the interdisciplinary mix between academic research and industrial/clinical work. ESRs in the Industrial and Clinical tracks will undertake research projects in collaboration with one of 14 Industrial and Clinical partners, from innovative start-ups to multinational companies and leading local hospitals, who will co-finance the ESRs' research projects, and provide co-supervision, extended secondments, research and training resources.

FLIGHT will equip recruited Fellows with unique capabilities to launch a research career at the intersection of photonic sciences with a wide range of industrial and clinical applications, and enhance the European talent base in a field – photonic sciences – identified as vital to the ongoing competitiveness of the European Research Area.
