Predoctoral Program

PhD Researchers
Predoctoral Program


The PREDOCTORAL Program provides a common framework for all researchers at the CNIC who are working towards a doctoral degree. All predoctoral researchers are signed up to this program, independently of their funding source.

The aims of the program are as follows:

  • To ensure uniform quality of predoctoral training at the CNIC
  • To ensure fair and equal access of predoctoral researchers to training opportunities


This program provides funding for the following aspects of postgraduate training, if and when these are not covered by the external funding award:

  • Cost of the University fees related to the Predoctoral Program and the printing of the thesis.
  • Accident insurance.
