Application to ICFOnest+ Fellowships is a two-step procedure:

In a first application step, suitable candidates are requested to submit via the corresponding call available at the ICFOjobs webpage:

  • A presentation letter with a declaration of interests, including an explicit indication of the potential ICFO research group(s) that may be of interest,
  • An updated complete Curriculum Vitae, and a full list of publications,
  • 2 reference letters submitted electronically by the external referees to the attention of the ICFOnest+ Screening Committee (, mailing label: ICFOnest+ and name of the candidate),
  • A copy of the PhD degree (or certificate stating the planned award date).

In a second application step, candidates who pass the threshold of the first revision stage, are informed and asked to submit a 2-pages research proposal indicating the ICFO research area/s of main interest. Applicants will be invited to get in touch with ICFO Group Leaders in the scientific area of their choice, in order to discuss with them the possible lines of investigation. Deadline for submitting the research proposal will be indicated to the corresponding candidates.
