20 February 2018 Master of Multidisciplinary Research in Experimental Sciences


Call for outstanding candidates for the BIST-UPF Master of Multidisciplinary Research in Experimental Sciences. The Master of Multidisciplinary Research in Experimental Sciences is a new initiative launched by BIST- the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology and the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences (DCEXS) of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra last year.

Admissions are now open for outstanding candidates to start in September 2018.

Competitive fellowships will be offered to outstanding candidates, covering tuition fees, a monthly living allowance and a mobility allowance.

The program is designed to provide outstanding students with the skills and abilities needed to thrive in an increasingly multidisciplinary contemporary research environment.

A key feature of the program is in-depth hands-on research training in multiple fields. Students will undertake a 6-month major project, and a 10-week minor project in two different research disciplines in leading research institutions from the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) and the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences (DCEXS). Students are provided with extensive training in professional research skill, and engage directly with and learn from outstanding local and international researchers through seminars, colloquia, and an intensive winter school and symposium.

The participating institutes are:

  • Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG)
  • Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO)
  • Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ)
  • Catalan Institute for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2)
  • High Energy Physics Institute (IFAE)
  • Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona)
  • Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC)
  • Department of Experimental and Health Sciences (DCEXS)

The program is aimed at candidates who intend to undertake a PhD or pursue a research career in fundamental science and technology. It is open to candidates who hold a degree in health sciences, engineering, computer sciences or degrees in basic scientific disciplines (chemistry, physics, biology, or mathematics).
