Premios y Distinciones

  •   Ramon y Cajal Fellowship

    Ministerio de CIencia e Innovacion

    España, 2010

    El objetivo de estas ayudas es la concesión de ayudas de una duración de cinco años para la contratación laboral de doctores en organismos de investigación a fin de favorecer la carrera profesional de los investigadores, y promover la captación o recuperación de investigadores españoles o extranjeros de cara a su estabilización en el sistema nacional de I+D+i; así como para la creación de puestos de trabajo de carácter permanente a ocupar por investigadores de trayectoria destacada a fin de contribuir a la renovación generacional de las plantillas de los organismos de investigación y promover las mejores prácticas de contratación estable.

  •   Conicyt scholarship

    CONICYT

    Chile, 1999

    La BECA DE DOCTORADO NACIONAL tiene por objeto apoyar financieramente a estudiantes de excelencia para iniciar o continuar estudios destinados a la obtención del grado académico de doctor, en programas acreditados en conformidad con la Ley Nº 20.129 e impartidos por universidades chilenas, por un plazo máximo de cuatro años, contados desde la fecha de inicio del programa de estudios, a fin de fortalecer la investigación en ciencia y tecnología en todas las áreas del conocimiento.
