The Maimonides Biomedical Research Institute of Cordoba (IMIBIC) act as host organisations within the INPhINIT programme by offering prestigious PhD open positions in which INPhINIT researchers may develop their doctoral research project.


1) At the publication date of the final list of selected candidates (29 may 2018), applicants must be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree.

2) At the time of recruitment, candidates must comply with one of the following options:

  • To have completed the studies that lead to an official Spanish (or from another country of the European Higher Education Area) university degree awarding 300 ECTS credits, of which at least 60 ECTS credits must correspond to master level.

  • To have completed a degree in a non-Spanish university not adapted to the European Higher Education Area that gives access to doctoral studies. The verification of an equivalent level of studies to the ones mentioned above will be made by the university when the admission procedure starts.

3) Candidates must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Spain for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the publication date of the final list of selected candidates (29 may 2018). Short stays such as holidays will not be taken into account when calculating the mobility requirement.

4) Candidates must have a demonstrable level of English (B2 or higher).

5) Only candidates whose submitted application fulfil all the requirements will be eligible.
