PhD Students

Our PhD Students are young, aspiring researchers who occupy a salaried position in our research team whilst undertaking their Ph.D. at a leading Madrid University for up to five years. Most of these pre-doc researchers enter the Ph.D. program at University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M). IMDEA Networks Institute has a far-reaching collaboration agreement with UC3M which includes the provision of a Postgraduate program for our early-stage researchers. In the future we may have similar arrangements with other Madrid Universities.
