The call for applications to the 2016 edition of the PhD Program in Molecular Biosciences is now open. Eleven FCT-funded fellowships are available to highly motivated candidates interested in the molecular perspective of life sciences. The application deadline is April 22.
The program is a flexible state-of-the-art research oriented program that fills the gap between molecules and living systems. After an updated overview of the fundamental aspects of biological processes, the program provides more specific training in one of four key areas (research profiles) of Molecular Biosciences: Molecular Mechanisms of Biological Processes, Molecular Microbiology and Infection Biology, and Biopharmaceutical Technology, and Plants for Life.
Interested candidates should visit the PhD Program website and access the online application form, where all information can be uploaded.
On May 8th, candidates will be informed of the results of this first selection period. A short list of candidates will be selected for a second evaluation step, involving both a presentation and an interview with the Admission Committee. Interviews are scheduled to take place in the week 25 May – 29 May.
The PhD Program is funded by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia and involves ITQB, iBET, two units of FCT-UNL (REQUIMTE and CREM), and IGC.
