Once a year, the Directive Board of the BIODIV Doctoral Programme opens a call for twelve mixed PhD scholarships, funded by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT).
Highly-performing students from any nationality, holding a MSc or a 4 or 5-year (pre-Bologna) degree in Biological Sciences or related fields, are invited to apply.
The scholarship’s duration is, as a rule, one year, renewable up to a maximum of four years. The selected students can apply for research periods abroad, up to a total of two years. Descriptions of the stipend values can be found here (please note that BD refers to PhD scholarships).
