The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) offers 4 fellowships addressed to PhD 
students to aid the scientific and technical tasks in the Severo Ochoa program. 
Under a collaborative Framework Agreement, the Spanish Ministry of Economy and 
Competitiveness and the “la Caixa” Foundation continue the fellowship programme 
started last year with a 2nd call. This programme aims to help the recruitment 
of talented students from across the world by doing their doctoral thesis work 
in one of the accredited “Severo Ochoa” centres of excellence. The objective of 
this joint activity is to boost the research capacity of the best research 
institutions in Spain. For this year, the “la Caixa” Foundation has selected 
the Barcelona Supercomputing Center to offer four grants more for the academic 
year 2014-2015 addressed to PhD students. This grant is renewable up to four 
years.
 
Under this program the BSC will carry out multidisciplinary research to address 
the complex challenges in the path towards Exascale computing, co-developing 
energy efficient and high performance hardware and software platforms with 
applications in personalised medicine, modelling of human organs, and global 
models for climate change and air quality prediction.
Within this context the Earth Sciences Department is looking for PhD students 
that will support scientific development of the NMMB/BSC-CTM multiscale 
chemical transport model, with the aim to improve the understanding of the 
physico-chemical interaction processes that directly impacts on weather, air 
quality and climate through numerical modelling techniques.

Interested candidates should send the application form by 28 February 2014.
