As a Severo Ochoa Excellence center, CREAF is a host organization of the INPhINIT Incoming fellowhips with ‘la Caixa’, and we offer up to 9 research projects to pursue PhD studies, addressed to early-stage scientifics of any nationality. We are committed to supporting young talent to be part of our cutting-edge research, connected to the most critical challenges society faces in this century on climate change and biodiversity. The call for submissions is opened until 25th January 2023.
At CREAF we are committed to supporting young talent to be part of our cutting-edge research, and to join a multidisciplinary and international research team.
CREAF INPhINIT fellows will be part of a multidisciplinary and international research team, with the best possible conditions. We encourage young scientists to get to know our research, as a powerful way to continue to delve deeper into science, to answer today’s big questions about climate change and biodiversity.
Our proposals in this edition focus on Mediterranean farming, bees and molecular biomarkers, citizen science in times of global change, plant responses to climate change, resilience to drought in European forest trees, tropical South American forests in a warming world, zoogeochemistry and the role of nutrients, and denitrification in European soil ecosystems.
Mediterranean farming, bees and molecular biomarkers, citizen science and global change, resilience to drought of European forest trees, tropical South American forests, and denitrification in European soil ecosystems are some of our proposals. Have a look at them!

Please check the INPhINIT Incoming fellowships requirements, and take into account that candidates must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Spain or in Portugal for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the deadline for applications.
In addition, INPhINIT PhD fellowships offer a highly competitive salary and complementary opportunities for transversal skills training through annual training sessions, incentives at the end of the thesis, and a host of other aspects that make these fellowships among the most attractive and comprehensive in Europe.
All applications must be necessarily through the Candidate portal from la Caixa Foundation website. Other forms of application wont be considered.
