Your MSCA Individual Fellowship at IMDEA Nanociencia
IMDEA Nanociencia (IMDEA Nano) is a non-profit foundation created in 2007 as a partnership between the Madrid Regional Government and the former Spanish Ministry of Education and Science, located on the UAM-CSIC Cantoblanco Campus of International Excellence. IMDEA Nano offers an attractive international working environment and conducts a strong interdisciplinary research which is organized around 5 programmes: (i) Organic Nanosystems for light harvesting and energy conversion, (ii) Fundamental properties of 2D materials, (iii) Nanomedicine against cancer and infection; (iv) Nanomagnetism and critical raw materials and (v) Solid state Quantum devices for information technologies. Working at IMDEA guarantees access to an infrastructure of the highest level for the pursuit of research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Since January 2014 the Foundation is based in a custom-designed building located on the UAM-CSIC Cantoblanco Campus of International Excellence, including 44 specific laboratories and the Centre for NanoFabrication with state-of-the-art facilities and world-class equipment.
In 2017, the Spanish State Agency of Research awarded IMDEA Nano with the highly-competitive “Severo Ochoa” accreditation (2017-2021) - a recognition of the scientific leadership and impact at a global level.
IMDEA Nano strives to support excellence in research and aims to attract young talents to carry out high quality, innovative and ambitious research projects. To that end, IMDEA Nano welcomes expressions of interest from potential postdoctoral researchers to apply jointly with a research supervisor to the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship scheme (MSCA-IF-2020).
