The Center for Materials Physics (CFM) in San Sebastian (Basque Country, Spain) is currently seeking for bright, highly motivated PhD candidates. The successful students will work in an intellectually stimulating environment to develop cutting-edge research on Materials Science, exploring physical and chemical properties of advanced materials, nanostructures and nanodevices, either theoretically or experimentally. They will have access to the most advanced techniques in the field and develop industry-transferable skills.

Approximately 25 applicants will be shortlisted for online interviews in May. In the interviews, the candidates will have the opportunity to discuss the research projects with the supervisors of the different projects and/or the Evaluation Committee. From the interviews, 7 candidates will be selected and granted full studentships.

Each studentship will be granted to work in one of the 22 research projects listed in the link below (the projects cover many different subjects in theoretical and experimental materials physics and chemistry, as well as photonics and quantum technologies).

The studentships will cover a period of three years, including a salary of 16.131,72 € (before taxes) during the first year, with subsequent increases of around plus 1000 euros per year, over the following two years. The studentship will also include a budget (allocated to the research group) covering research and training expenses. PhD studentship will only be granted to successful candidates whose PhD project will be formally registered at the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU before 31st December 2021 for the PhD contract to be continued. Therefore, the candidates are required to hold a Master degree granted before the end of 2021.
