Fostering research careers

training introOne of nanoGUNE’s main commitments is to foster high-level training. Hence, we offer a complete PhD program to students who wish to start a research career in a nanoscience-related field at a top international research institution. Moreover, we also offer internship opportunities for undergraduates, as well as the posibility to do the bachelor or master final degree projects within any of our research groups. 

Relevant academic backgrounds for our Research Groups include Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Materials Science, and Engineering.  

We aim at promoting a young, international, and multidisciplinary research environment where basic and applied research projects are pursued.
