Job opportunities are usually advertised here. Nevertheless, 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.

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.
We are also happy to support applications to Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships.
Stay tuned with opportunities for postdoctoral work with us in the realms of the iMM-Laço Hub.
Amongst the other potential sources of funding for postdocs, we highlight the FCT Individual Call to Scientific Employment Stimulus, the EMBO Postdoctoral 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.

We primarily recommend applying to the Lisbon BioMed PhD Program:

We are also usually open to considering applications to FCT Individual PhD Studentships (although not in 2024), 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). The potential candidate should contact us in advance (not when the calls are already open) to undergo the selection process and so that there is time to prepare a competitive application.
We also consider the possibility of co-supervising a PhD in industry.

Some of our projects are compatible with Masters theses in Biomedical Research, Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Biomedical Engineering and related subjects.

Exceptionally skilled and motivated candidates should get in touch.
Masters projects available at iMM, including in our Lab, are advertised here.

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 and Santander opportunities. At the junior level, we favour trainees with Bioengineering and Bioinformatics backgrounds.
