Postgraduate Studies in Scientific Research Methods and Techniques 

The aim of the Postgraduate Studies in Scientific Research Methods and Techniques is to attract future PhD students by allowing them to be included in the research environment of a R&D unit of Ciências ULisboa, integrating teams that develop top-level scientific research work supervised by a Faculty professor or PhD researcher.

The basic training can always be complemented with an optional component to be defined by the course's Scientific Committee, appointed by the Faculty Dean, and included in the course's study plan.

The course has a number of ECTS multiple of 15, according to the student's choice, not exceeding 60 ECTS. Successful attendance is confirmed by a Certificate, issued within a maximum period of 90 working days after being requested.

Applications are continuously open.

The application process requires:

  • curriculum vitae;
  • identification document;
  • letter of recommendation;
  • indication of a contact researcher (either a professor at FCUL or a researcher at one of its R&D Units);
