The Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência considers the PhD an opportunity for young scientists to learn how to become independent in research.
The Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência runs innovative PhD programmes, structured to offer students the best conditions to find and 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 a group leader to supervise their doctoral work.
Our community includes student from other programmes such as:
