The studies will start on september 2013, however, the first steps for application should start soon. The duration of the studies is three years (sometimes a bit more). The salary during the first six months is about 800 euros, and for the rest of the stay about 1000 euros. Tuition and fees are covered by the fellowship except for about 100 euros a year for the doctoral program. The fellowship is competitive so that high grades are required (typically 90% for undergraduate and graduate studies). Spanish language is not needed, however a good mastery of English is needed. It is required that the master degree has been obtained after the first of January 2010.
This is a call for a candidate that has a bachelor degree and a master degree in mathematics, and wants to pursue a PhD degree in applied mathematics at the Technical University of Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain.
