PhD International Fellowship program at Doñana Biological Station (CSIC, Spain).

I am junior principal investigator at the Estación Biológica de Doñana (EBD, CSIC) in Sevilla, Spain. My research line focus on the epigenetics of host-parasite interactions. 

I am seeking for prospective students interested in applying for a fellowship of "la Caixa"- Severo Ochoa International PhD Program 2016, to conduct the doctoral studies under the supervision of Elena Gómez-Díaz (Estación Biológica de Doñana, CSIC), and in collaboration with Jose-Luis Gómez Skarmeta (Centro Andaluz de Biología del Desarrollo, Universidad Pablo Olavide, CSIC). The framework of the PhD thesis would be a Plan Nacional project of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. The aim of the PhD project would be to investigate the role of epigenetic mechanisms on the molecular cross-talk between malaria parasites (Plasmodium spp.) and their mosquito vectors (Anopheles spp.). The project integrates knowledge and skills in molecular biology, evolutionary biology, and bioinformatics.

The deadline for applications ends 29th of February 2016 at 2pm (Spanish time). More details on the fellowship program can be found in the website of the program (, as well as information on the requisites of the candidates and the criteria of evaluation can be found here (compatibility of the academic degree may be limited for international students).
