BEC is one of the top research institutions named as a Severo Ochoa Research Centre by Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (in charge of research and innovation policy in Spain), which recognizes excellence at the highest international level in terms of research, training, human resources, outreach and technology transfer. The Severo Ochoa award provides 4m€ over 2015-2019 to implement IBEC’s Research and Human Resources Programmes.
”la Caixa” is a non-profit entity whose activity in education is based on the principle of promoting equal access of citizens to quality qualifications and specializations at national and international levels. Over the years, thousands of students have advanced their training thanks to a ”la Caixa” Foundation fellowship, enabling them to undertake postgraduate studies in Spain and abroad.
Since 2012, ”la Caixa” has supported Severo Ochoa centres by offering fellowships to excellent candidates to perform a PhD. Within this framework, three ”la Caixa”–Severo Ochoa grants are offered at IBEC for the academic year 2016-2017.
”la Caixa”–Severo Ochoa grants offer a 4 year-contract with a gross salary ranging from 18.546,56€ in the first year to 22.558,67€ in the fourth year, plus €6400 (for mobility and training) for the 4-year period.
Furthermore, 6 fellowships will be offered, funded by MINECO, through the ‘Ayudas para contratos predoctorales para la formación de doctores’ 2016 call. MINECO fellowships offer a 4 year-contract with a gross salary of 16.422€, plus 6250€ for mobility and training for the 4-year period.
