JOB DESCRIPTION: 
Since 1982, the “la Caixa” Foundation has offered several fellowship programmes 
aimed at allowing students to undertake postgraduate studies in Spain and 
abroad. Over the years, thousands of students have advanced their training 
thanks to a “la Caixa” Foundation fellowship. In 2008, the “la Caixa Foundation 
launched a new programmed aimed at national and international students. As part 
of this programme, each year fellowships are awarded to students who wish to 
complete work toward their doctoral degrees.

BSC-CNS is at the service of the international scientific community and

Under a collaborative Framework Agreement, the Ministry of Economy and 
Competitiveness and the “la Caixa” Foundation continue the fellowship programme

students from across the world by doing their doctoral thesis work in one of 
the accredited “Severo Ochoa” centers of excellence. The objective of this

institutions in Spain. For this year, the “la Caixa” Foundation has selected 
the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) to offer 2 grants more for the 
academic year 2016-2017 addressed to PhD students. This grant is renewable up 
to four years.

BSC-CNS is looking for young scientists from the national and international 
community. We encourage applications from highly motivated engineers and 
computational scientists with outstanding qualifications. Successful candidates 
will join research groups with top-level scientists and will carry out their 
research in cutting-edge areas of Computer Sciences, Life Sciences, Earth 
Sciences and Computer Applications in Sciences and Engineering.
