Please get in touch with Nuno (nmorais[at]medicina[dot]ulisboa[dot]pt) if you are interested in our work and consider being part of the NMorais Lab. Please include a letter of motivation with your research interests, your CV and the contacts of two references. When available, funded positions will be duly announced but, by default, candidates are expected to apply to their own fellowships.

Some of our projects are compatible with Masters theses in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Biomedical Engineering and related subjects. We will be welcoming Masters students again in the 2019/2020 academic year.

We primarily recommend applying to the Lisbon BioMed PhD Program:

We are also open to considering applications to FCT Individual PhD Studentships, La Caixa INPhINIT, Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds PhD Fellowships (international students) or other funding sources suggested by the candidate (for integration in the Lisbon Academic Medical Center PhD Program). We also consider the possibility of co-supervising a PhD in industry.

We are particularly happy to support the application of very promising young scientists (with the quality, motivation and ambition to become group leaders) to La Caixa Junior Leader Fellowships, should we be chosen as hosts.
Amongst the other potential sources of funding for postdocs, we highlight the FCT Individual Call to Scientific Employment Stimulus, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships, the EMBO Long-Term Fellowships and the Human Frontier Science Program fellowships.
Exceptional candidates willing to apply to the calls above can aspire to a fully funded earlier start in our lab. Please get in touch with Nuno (nmorais[at]medicina[dot]ulisboa[dot]pt) for more details.

Short-term training and academic visits:
Amongst the potential sources of funding for short-term stays in our lab, we highlight the EMBO Short-Term Fellowships ant the Becas Santander.
