The High Energy Physics Group (Grupo de Altas Energías - GAE) at Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) is seeking outstanding candidates to apply for the La Caixa PhD fellowship programs. The specifics for the programs follow:

  • La Caixa PhD Fellowship program INPHINIT - Retaining

    • A three-year contract for candidates holding a MSc degree in Particle Physics or Astrophysics by September 2022. 
    • Candidates must have obtained the bachelor degree in a university different from UCM and must have resided in Spain for more than  12 months during the last 3 years.
    • Deadline: February 16th, 2022.
    • Details:

The GAE-UCM has an ample trajectory in the fields of experimental astroparticle physics and high energy astrophysics, with scientific interests ranging from the study of active galactic nuclei, pulsars , dark matter searches and unidentified gamma-ray sources. The group participates in the ground-based gamma-ray  observatories CTA and MAGIC and collaborates in the space-based Fermi - Large Area Telescope. The successful candidate is expected to join and develop most of her/his work within these international collaborations. 

GAE-UCM must act as host, and thus it will perform an internal selection. Therefore, if you are interested, please send us at a cover letter and a CV (including the contact details for at least one referee), with  deadline January 31st, 2022. 

The GAE-UCM is part of IPARCOS (Institute of Particle Physics and the Cosmos), a leading institute of the Complutense University, with activities related to Particle, Nuclear Physics, Astrophysics and Instrumentation.  If you are interested in applying to these calls in a related area, you may find a list of research groups at
