Nanomedicine Doctoral Programme (NanoMedPhD) is a new strategic programme 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, in three research areas: Nanodiagnostics, Therapeutic Nanosystems and Regenerative Nanomedicine. PhD fellows participating in the NanoMedPhD program will have the opportunity to receive specific training and participate in nanomedicine research activities in order to obtain a doctoral degree on a topic of their choice within the researchc areas of the program.
The scientific supervision of their research activity (thesis project) will take place in the Andalusian Centre for Nanomedicine and Biotechnology (BIONAND, located in Malaga, Spain) through 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 Malaga (UMA), which is the academic partner of this programme. NanoMedPhD has been designed taking into account the seven EU Principles on Innovative Doctoral Training.
NanoMedPhD launches an open call for fellowships in 2016 for a total number of 8 three-year incoming doctoral fellowships distributed as follows:
- 3 Nanodiagnostics Area fellowships
- 2 Therapeutic Nanosystem Area fellowships
- 3 Regenerative Nanomedicine Area fellowships
The selection process will follow the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for their Recruitment, through an open, transparent, merit-based, impartial, equitable and internationally advertised procedure.
The selected candidates will be offered an employment contract for a period of 3 years, including attractive employment conditions (mobility, family and travel allowance). Spanish Labour Regulations ensure access to common social benefits including access to free public healthcare, social security insurance, sickness and parental benefits, pension rights and unemployment benefits.
