Instituto de Óptica, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (IO-CSIC)

General description

IO-CSIC is a dynamic institution with highly internationally recognized researchers and state of the art experimental facilities in a range of topics related to optics and photonics. Its technological outputs contribute significantly to the CSIC mission of creating an impact in science and society. Current research topics include visual optics, biophotonics, image science, optical metrology, nonlinear dynamics, fiber optics, nanophotonics, photonics with high energy ions, nanostructure photonics and ultrafast science.

As per COFUND guidelines, fellowship programmes will be based on individual-driven mobility, i.e., researchers will be able to freely choose a research topic fitting their individual needs.

The subject of the research project is expected to contribute to European competitiveness and to be in the general field of Photonics and/or its applications. Within these limitations, applicants can freely choose both their research topic and their host organisation, in the spirit of the ‘European Charter for Researchers’.
