Call for FPU PhD positions open

Call for FPU PhD positions open

The call for FPU PhD positions form the Spanish Ministry of Universities is now open. The fellowships will cover a four-year period, with conditions as specified in the Ministry call. This includes a competitive salary and full health insurance. Selected candidates will be included in IFT grants, which provide additional funds for scientific visits, attendance to advanced schools and workshops, and other training activities.

Candidates interested in pursuing a PhD at IFT are encouraged to apply, and to contact potential PhD advisors. IFT is an equal opportunity institution and all qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to gender, sexual orientation, race, age, religion, or any other circumstance. Candidates from underrepresented and traditionally disadvantaged backgrounds are particularly encouraged to apply. Additionally, there is a number of fellowships which are specific for candidates with functional diversity.

Application procedure:

The call is divided in two phases. In the first phase the candidates should complete the online application and provide their academic record, without the need of specifying a PhD advisor. Nevertheless, those who intend to pursue their PhD studies at IFT should select UAM’s PhD program. Candidates that pass to the second phase should contact a potential PhD advisor to proceed with the application. The choice of PhD advisor will determine through which institution (UAM or CSIC) the fellowship will be carried out.

At the moment of application candidates must either posses a Masters degree or be enrolled in an official Master or PhD program. They must also have an academic record above the thresholds indicated in the call and obtained their university degree after 2018 (except for those cases contemplated in the call).

Fully detailed information about the call (in Spanish) can be found at this link

Applications have to be filed through the webpage of the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation, and Universities:


The application period of the first phase is from 22 November to 17 December 2021 (hard deadline at 14:00 CET of the closing day).

Should you need any further information or assistance concerning the application, please consult the attached material or contact
