ICIQ Graduate Student Programme
ICIQ’s PhD student programme is at the core of our commitment to education. We foster graduate students in their path to think, design, and execute a research project under the supervision and mentoring of an ICIQ Group Leader. The programme targets highly qualified and talented graduate students with an enthusiastic interest in chemical research and has been successful in attracting students from all over the world.
They work in creative research projects related to ICIQ’s research areas: Catalysis, and Renewable energy. Throughout their stage at ICIQ, students make the most of an excellent team of researchers and highly specialised technicians in ICIQ’s cutting-edge core facilities.
Other key aspects of the ICIQ International Graduate Student Programme are opportunities for short stays in renowned international research institutions, weekly seminars by leading scientists at the forefront of chemical research, as well as complementary training designed to ensure a successful career in a variety of areas, including hands-on training in the use of state-of-the-art scientific instrumentation, IP management, entrepreneurship, knowledge and technology transfer and communication skills.
The programme ultimately leads to obtaining a PhD degree. In partnership with the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) we offer the PhD programmes “Chemical Science and Technology” and “Nanoscience, Materials and Chemical Engineering.” Students enrolled in these programmes can apply for the International or European Mention of their doctoral degree.
Students interested in joining our graduate student programme are encouraged to apply for any of our fellowship opportunities listed below or for individual open positions in our groups.
