The Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência has been running innovative PhD programmes for more than 25 years, structured to offer students the best conditions to pursue research on original questions in the biological sciences.

Prior to choosing a laboratory or research topic, students go through an initial academic semester that explores the most recent scientific advances on a broad range of topics in a very active way, promoting independent and critical thinking. At the end of the semester, students develop a research proposal for their thesis and find one or more group leaders to supervise their doctoral work.
