ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences (http://www.icfo.eu) is a leading research center based in Barcelona, Spain, that conducts wide-scope research in the fields of optics and photonics and their applications encompassing all areas of science and technology.
ICFO invites applications for tenure-track Group Leader positions under the NEST program. The program, which is supported by a generous private endowment by Cellex Foundation Barcelona and Fundacio Mir-Puig Barcelona, offers outstanding opportunities for young scientists aiming to start and lead an independent research group.
We are looking for ambitious young scientists with an innovative research program at the forefront of any branches of science that are based on or that use Optics and Photonics. Applications with programs addressing multidisciplinary topics that complement ICFO’s existing core strengths are particularly welcome.
