IDÆA´s investigation, training, and education programmes cultivate fertile ground for cross-subject innovation from local to global scales. We have followed our mission to aim high by leading international projects, adopting a high profile in the scientific community, and publishing prolifically in Q1 and D1 journals. Our staff members include individuals belonging to the elite group of scientists most cited in atmospheric science and water chemistry. With the recent recognition as a Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence Award, we are placed in an optimal research position to launch a new phase of expansion.
A strength of IDÆA is its ability to offer hands-on experience in using the extensive instrumentation base, especially in analytical chemistry. Many PhD students have gone on to enter leading positions in industry and administration, some being already in high management levels of multinational companies. They have the great advantage of practical analytical skills combined with a broad understanding of the multidisciplinary nature of environmental problems.
The Institute aims to attract exceptional new young researchers who can contribute to achieving the strategic targets of our research priorities. This is being done by using open competitive calls to hire young postdoc researchers and by attracting national and international talented researchers with proven high profile success (e.g. ERC grants) at a postdoctoral or senior level. These researchers will constitute a nucleus for future projects and collaborations with EU and International Institutes.
