“la Caixa” Foundation provides support to ICIQ and other Centers of Excellence to bring young researchers the opportunity to develop a top scientific career in Spain and boost the chances of obtaining an independent research position across the world. The ”la Caixa”-INPhINIT fellowship programme is co-funded by the European Commission through COFUND, one of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie initiatives of the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme.
INPhINIT targets the most motivated PhD candidates by addressing the research areas which are directly related to the major societal challenges marked by the European Commission: health and ageing, food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, water research, secure energy, climate change, smart and green transport and environment. In order to give effective answers to these concerns, supporting young scientific talent has become essential to ensure the next generation of researchers.
“High-reward grants for outstanding students”
ICIQ’s PhD-directed research and associated activities are at the core of our commitment to education. We foster graduate students in their path to think, design and execute an individual research project under the supervision and mentoring of an ICIQ Group Leader in a creative and stimulating scientific environment.
Students within this programme will have the opportunity of joining one of ICIQ’s research groups to carry out one of the research projects listed bellow. If you’re interested in any of these projects, please contact the group leader supervising the project.

- Light-driven Reductive Chemistry – Towards Solar-Chemicals (Prof. Julio Lloret-Fillol)
- Molecular receptors based on mechanically interlocked assemblies (Prof. Pau Ballester)
- Multibinding Metal Catalysts for the Development of Bio-Inspired Cyclizations (Prof. Antonio M. Echavarren)
- Asymmetric Synthesis of Non-natural Chiral Amino Acids Using Metal-Mediated Decarboxylative Functionalization Strategies (Prof. Arjan W. Kleij)
