Nanomedicine Doctoral Programme (NanoMedPhD) is a new strategic programme, within the framework of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (COFUND: Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes), which aims to provide trans-national mobility for early-stage researchers and offer them training activities that lead to the award of a doctoral degree in the emerging and multidisciplinary field of Nanomedicine. The research thesis projects will take place in the Andalusian Center for Nanomedicine and Biotechnology (BIONAND, Málaga, Spain) through the supervision of its Principal Investigators, and regarding the academic formation, the fellows will be enrolled in one of the four Doctoral Programmes related to this discipline, offered by the University of Málaga, which is the academic partner of this programme.

NanoMedPhD launches in 2016 an open call for a total number of 8 three-year incoming doctoral fellowships distributed as follows:

  • 3 Nanodiagnostics Area doctoral fellowships
  • 2 Therapeutic Nanosystem Area doctoral fellowships
  • 3 Regenerative Nanomedicine Area doctoral fellowships

The opening date of the call is 1st October 2016 and the deadline date for submission of proposals is 30th December 2016. The expected date of recruitment of selected candidates will be 15th September 2017.

This programme is opened to researchers of all nationalities that meet the following requirements:

  • Applicants must be considered Early-Stage Researchers (ESR): at the time of recruitment applicants must be in the first four years of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree
  •  Applicants must comply with the mobility rule established by European Commission: they must not have resided or carried out their main activity in Spain for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the date of recruitment.
  • Applicants must hold a university degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate, in any country within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) or other foreign education system.

The selected candidates will be considered Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellows, and will be offered an employment contract with a gross annual salary of approximately 25.100 €. In addition, fellowships also include other allowances, which depend on the particular/personal conditions of each candidate (family allowance and travel allowance).
