INPhINIT INCOMING PhD Fellowships at the Institute of Space Sciences (ICE)

Description:  The Institute of Space Sciences (ICE, CSIC) in Bellaterra (near Barcelona) announces the opportunity to apply for PhD fellowships within the Framework of the ‘la Caixa’ Foundation Doctoral INPhINIT – Incoming.

In Spain, the program seeks to attract the best young researchers willing to pursue PhD studies in STEM disciplines at research centers accredited with the Spanish Seal of Excellence Severo Ochoa, Maria de Maeztu. The INPhINIT fellowships offer a highly competitive salary and complementary training opportunities making these fellowships some of the most attractive and complete in Europe.

ICE is formed by over 80 members, and it is part of the CSIC, the Spanish Research Council. CSIC is the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain and the third-largest in Europe. ICE it is accredited with the Spanish Seal of Excellence Maria de Maeztu and currently offers the following projects within the INPhINIT program:

Active black holes in dwarf galaxies

Cosmography of Laniakea: cornering the “Hubble tension” by reconstructing the local  Universe with type Ia supernovae

Cosmology ensuing from machine learning

Early stages in planetary accretion from the study of chondritic meteorites

Gravitational Waves from Binary Black Holes with Intermediate Mass Ratios

Hybrid simulations of pulsar wind nebulae

On the formation of star and planetary systems in magnetized dense molecular environments

Remote sensing of soil and ocean surfaces using bi-static passive radar system onboard a drone. PhD research on new instrument architectures and concepts for drone-based bi-static passive radars

Searching for another Earth : algorithmic and machine learning approaches to address stellar noise in exoplanet searches

Simulating the Universe to exploit large cosmological surveys
