In 2008 "la Caixa" Foundation, a non-profit organization, launched a fellowship programme for outstanding young graduate students from all over the world who want to pursue an ambitious PhD project at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO).
"la Caixa" Foundation and the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness have joined efforts to link the “la Caixa”/CNIO international PhD programme to research centres distinguished as “Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence”. The CNIO has been awarded this distinction in 2011.
The “la Caixa”-Severo Ochoa International PhD Programme at the CNIO offers cross-disciplinary training in state-of-the-art basic and applied cancer research within an international scientific environment. Five fully funded four year fellowships will be available in 2013. Candidates should have an excellent academic track record, a solid knowledge of English and previous research experience.
Applications must be received by March 15th, 2013.

Outside this special programme, additional vacancies for PhD students are regularly posted in the “Jobs” section of our web page together with instructions on how to apply.
