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.

ICFO conducts wide-scope research in a variety of fields that use optics and photonics, including nanoscience, nanotechnology, quantum sciences, biosciences, and their applications encompassing all areas of science and technology. We are looking for ambitious young scientists with an innovative research program at the forefront of any branches of science and engineering that use light-based concepts or technologies. Applications with programs addressing multidisciplinary topics that complement ICFO’s existing core strengths are particularly welcome.

The program offers generous start-up packages, custom-designed laboratories in a new dedicated building with state-of-the-art facilities, and the most advanced engineering support.

Inquiries for information may be addressed to Professor Lluis Torner, ICFO director, at director@icfo.eu.
