The Fellowship

The Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE) offers 10 undergraduate students the possibility of spending the summer as a physics researcher through the 1st Summer Fellowship Programme. The aim of this one-month stay is to become the first step of University students research career. Participants will have the opportunity to discover the real life of a scientist working side by side with IFAE researchers.

This programme is valuable complement to your physics education. You will have the opportunity to discover the real life of a scientist working side by side with IFAE researchers.
The Fellowship is addressed to University students of any nationality in the final years of their degrees: applications from students of the second, third and fourth year of Physics and related subjects will be accepted. To apply for the Fellowship candidates might follow the Application Process required.

The Summer Fellowship will run between 1st July 2016 and 31th July 2016 and students participating will receive modest stipend . The participants will be under the supervision of a senior researcher of the group they choose.
