PhD Fellowships for PTNMR PhD Program

Filed under:
Call for applications at the Doctoral Programme in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Applied to Chemistry, Materials and Biosciences

Oeiras, 10.12.2018

The call for applications for the PhD Program in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Applied to Chemistry, Materials and Biosciences will open on December 17. ITQB NOVA is one of the scientific partners. Eight FCT-funded fellowships are available to highly motivated candidates interested in the molecular perspective of life sciences. The application deadline is January 7th 2019.

The aim of the PTNMR doctoral training program is to foster the development of NMR spectroscopy in Portugal by training students within a specific research plan, to take the maximum advantage of this powerful technique in a variety of key research areas:Structural Biology, Material Sciences, Small Molecules, Metabolomics and Metabonomics.

This training program will contribute to take the maximum gain of the recently installed national research infrastructure that integrates the national Roadmap of Research Infrastructures.

There are two projects to be developed at ITQB NOVA: Dissecting the supramolecular dynamics of the virulent Tir during infection, with supervisor Tiago Cordeiro, and Exploring the molecular bases of ‘unnatural’ reactivity of engineered cytochormes c, with supervisor Ricardo Louro in collaboration with CERM, Florence, Italy. Full list of available projects here.

Interested candidates should visit the announcement, the PhD Program website and access the online application form, where all information can be uploaded.


The PTNMR is an international PhD Programme, funded by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, between Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa (FCT-UNL), Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica António Xavier (ITQB NOVA), Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa (IST-UL), Universidade de Aveiro (UA), Universidade de Coimbra (UC), Universidade do Porto (UP) and Universidade da Beira Interior (UBI) as institutions providing academic PhD awards. It also has partner institutions Universidade do Minho (UM), Universidade da Madeira (UMa), Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB), Spain, The Magnetic Resonance Center (CERM), Italy and The Bijvoet Center for Biomolecular Research from the University of Utrecht, Netherlands (Bijvoet Center).
