IMDEA Nanociencia Doctoral Training Programme in Nanoscience

Project description

Advanced doctoral training programmes in nanoscience

Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the IDEAL PhD project is a new doctoral fellowship programme offering training to 12 researchers in nanotechnology. Researchers will gain skills and knowledge needed to tackle nanotechnology challenges in the following fields: nanotechnology for energy harvesting, quantum materials at the nanoscale, nanotechnology for healthcare, nanomagnetism for information and communication technologies, ultrafast phenomena at the nanoscale and sustainable nanotechnologies and critical raw materials. The programmes are supported by a platform for disruptive innovation encouraging university-industry collaboration and product prototyping, proof-of-concept testing and scaling.


IDEAL PhD programme is a new doctoral fellowship programme promoted by Fundación IMDEA Nanociencia (IMDEA Nano) that aims to attract 12 talented researchers in two open calls to undertake excellent research in any of the programmes at the Institute:

P1 Nanotechnology for energy harvesting, P2 Quantum materials at the nanoscale, P3 Nanotechnology for healthcare, P4 Nanomagnetism for Information and Communication Technologies, P5 Ultrafast phenomena at the nanoscale and P6 Sustainable nanotechnologies and critical raw materials.

The research programmes are supported by a Platform for Disruptive Innovation which encourages links with industry to help achieve translation of results to market provide support and facilities for prototyping, proof-of-concept testing, and scaling-up. They will be offered secondments of 3-6 months at Partner Organisations relevant to their research careers both academic and non-academic, depending on preference.

Within the IDEAL PhD programme, we aim to boost the careers of talented researchers offering them an innovative, truly interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral training in nanoscience and nanotechnology. IMDEA Nano is committed to providing a pool of researchers with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle the next challenges in the nanoscience field.

Doctoral candidates will receive a well-balanced research independence and mentoring from an experienced scientific and management team as well as access to an infrastructure of the highest level for the pursuit of their projects in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Fundación IMDEA Nanociencia is a non-profit Foundation created in 2006 jointly by the regional government of Madrid and the government of Spain to shorten the distance between research and society; providing new capacity for research, technological development and innovation in the field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
