PhD Positions for International Students in Spain – 2021/2022


Application for the PhD Positions for International Students in Spain – 2021/2022. Entry is now open at the Comillas Pontifical University Madrid in Spain.



The motive of the bursary is to encourage students who want to take part in the PhD degree programme at the university. The successful applicants will have the chance to join a recognised research group, to be eligible for research stays at associate universities that are part of the program, and to participate in teaching and research training activities provided by the University. All this will allow the candidates to develop skills related to research and management of R+D+I, and to gain experience in research and teaching.

Comillas Pontifical University is a private Catholic higher education institution run by the Spanish Province of the Society of Jesus in Madrid Spain. It offers various degree programmes.
