At the IIT, we need creative people who, in addition to an excellent academic curriculum, are capable of working as a team in an international environment and providing novel and rigorous solutions to the different challenges posed. If you have successfully completed your studies with a Master's Degree in Engineering (Industrial, Organization, Computer Science, Electrical-Electronics, Telecommunications, etc.) or related disciplines (Mathematics, Physics, etc.), you can also be part of IIT.

Occasionally, the IIT also offers full-time contract jobs for doctor researchers with exclusive dedication to research projects. For this purpose there are scholarships such as Marie Curie Individual Fellowships or Juan de la Cierva, among others.



The cornerstone of the IIT is the group of PhD students, called Research Assistants, who have been selected to carry out their doctoral thesis in any of our different areas of research. The IIT offers a flexible work environment to achieve maximum academic excellence while working closely with the industry. As a result, IIT job opportunities are not restricted to the university field, but there are many examples of successful careers in the private sector, in which having spent a few years in the IIT constitutes a differentiating element.

There are three possible categories:

In any category, the candidate must have an official Master's Degree and fulfill all the admission requirements to access one of the Comillas International Doctorate School programs related to IIT:

Undergraduate and Master

There are different alternatives for undergraduate and master students to collaborate in research activities at the IIT, either through collaborative scholarships associated with research projects or through completion of graduate or Master's degree projects.

Doctoral Stays

Finally, if you are doing a doctorate at another national or international center but you want to collaborate with the IIT, you can apply for a stay with us. This possibility is also extended to postdoctoral researchers. Although there may be flexibility in terms of length, ideally you should choose one of the following options:

  • 6 months
  • 12 months
  • Due to space limitations at the institute, applications will be managed in a coordinated manner and should be geared towards scientific production (articles in JCR journals) in collaboration with the IIT staff supervising the research.
    If you are interested in applying for a stay at the IIT please fill in this form and attach your curriculum vitae and academic record together with a cover letter. If your profile is suitable we will contact you for a personal interview.
