During 2014, the Fundación “la Caixa” will provide support for four highly qualified graduate students, in order to carry out their experimental work towards obtaining a PhD degree at the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncológicas (CNIO; Spanish National Cancer Research Centre) within an International PhD Programme.

In the context of this “la Caixa”-Severo Ochoa International PhD Programme at the CNIO, we are seeking exceptional and highly motivated PhD students who are interested in receiving ample cross-disciplinary training in state-of-the-art basic and applied cancer research.
