IRB Barcelona International PhD programme: on TARGET for high-impact biomedicine
IRB Barcelona is a vibrant multidisciplinary institute where scientists address challenging and pressing biomedical problems in a collaborative fashion to provide groundbreaking solutions to unmet medical needs.
Doctoral INPhINIT Incoming
35 fellowships for early-stage researchers of any nationality who wish to carry out their PhD projects in research centres accredited with the Spanish Seal of Excellence Severo Ochoa, María de Maetzu or Health Institute Carlos III and Portuguese units accredited as “excellent” according to the evaluation of the Fundação de Ciência e Tecnologia.
"The IRB_Dream fellowships caught my attention from the start of the hiring process. It is really cool that an institute is giving students the opportunity to join the MSCA community while choosing their own project and their favourite research group."
"The programme allows us to go to conferences, workshops, and courses, use facilities, and talk with professionals who have a lot of knowledge and experience. I believe that in this programme we really do have an opportunity to develop an amazing skillset and work alongside great professionals."
"I chose the IRB_Dream PhD Programme because the precise nature of the curriculum, coupled with the robust, practical applicability of the skills taught, makes it an impeccable choice for doctoral studies."
"I felt like IRB Barcelona was really making an effort, to take care of PhD students and make sure they have a good experience. (...) The Institute had a very good atmosphere, and also especially my current lab. Barcelona is a nice city, and I had a good fellowship, so there wasn't really any reason for me not to come here."
"I firmly believe a programme that takes such unparalleled care of the next generation of scientists is bound to fascinate any undergraduate like me interested in pursuing a scientific career."
"The programme is international, so it offers the possibility to open collaborations on a European level more easily. Also, IRB Barcelona has a very good research programme. The PIs who work at this institute are very known in the scientific community, in fact they attracted my attention. In general, IRB has a reputation in Spain but also in general at a European level."
Translational Control of Cell Cycle and Differentiation
"The research community at IRB Barcelona fosters such a collaborative environment, not only intra-institution but also inter-institution with the various individual institutes in the PCB, BIST, and Barcelona. This close collaboration not only makes it easier to reach out to experts across the field and do interdisciplinary science but also includes various learning experiences that could be helpful during my academic career."
"I look forward to learning from the frequent engagement with the active and international research community working at the IRB Barcelona, and to growing as a scientist."

«The research quality at IRB Barcelona is very high, and the good weather is a bonus! I also had first-class help from the Institute to get settled in.»
«One of my goals when choosing IRB Barcelona was also to gain experience in tech transfer. I have ideas. And I want to learn how to convert them into a business.»
«We suspected that CPEB1, a protein involved in regulating mRNA translation in the cytoplasm, might also be active in the nucleus and play a role in controlling pre-mRNA processing. We discovered that it affects the alternative generation in the mature mRNA of the 3'-UTR, regions where most of the elements regulating translation in time and space are located.»

«At IRB Barcelona I found a solid scientifc project, and the opportunity to 'contaminate' myself working with biophysicists. The solvency of the Institute, the competitiveness of the science together with the unparalleled quality of lifeof the city convinced me that this was the best choice for my career.»
«Our study highlights the complexity of p38 functions, both in cancer and in the maintenance of normal tissues. It shows why an inhibitor of this molecule could effectively have undesirable side effects. But these do not exclude it from being a target against cancer.»
