    University of Coimbra opens a call for three research fellowship, in the framework of the project “HEALTHYAGING 2020” (reference: CENTRO-01-0145-FEDER-000012), co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER) of the European Union, through Regional Operational Programme of the Centre (CENTRO2020) of Portugal 2020 in the following conditions:

    Scientific area: Pharmaceutical Sciences, Applied Pharmacology, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry and related fields.

    Skills/Qualifications/Admission requirements: Masters in Pharmaceutical Sciences, Applied Pharmacology, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry or related fields and enrolled in a PhD (Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biology, Chemistry, Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry or similar) or enrolled in a non-degree course (in areas or skills related to research activities).

    “Courses not conferring an academic degree” must be related to the research fellowship's activity type. “Courses not conferring an academic degree” are the courses referred to in paragraph e) of number 3 of article 4 of Decree- Law no. 74/2006, of 24 March, in the current wording, provided that they are developed in association or cooperation between the higher education institution and one or more R&D units, in accordance with the provisions of paragraph e) of article 3 of the Regulation for Research Fellowships of the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, I.P.

    Although the recipients must be enrolled in a cycle of studies leading to the attribution of an academic degree or in a course not conferring an academic degree, at the time of application it is not necessary for the candidate to have made such an enrollment, and proof of enrollment must be presented until the fellowship is contractualized. Candidates are only required to meet the requirements to enroll in the training offer. If there are candidates already enrolled (including attending a course), they compete on an equal footing with those who are not enrolled.

    Work plan/ Objectives: The work to be developed is part of the research activities of the project's work-package 5, dedicated to studying strategies to delay aging and associated pathologies using animal and cell models.

    The selected candidate will receive advanced scientific training to carry out research work on cellular mechanisms of aging and associated diseases.

    Regime: The attribution of the fellowship does not generate or entitle a relation of a legal-labour nature, and the fellowship is undertaken in an exclusive dedication regime. The fellowship holder is awarded the Fellowship Statute of the UC, in its current wording, according to the Research Fellowship Holder Statute , and according to the Regulation for Research Fellowships of the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, I.P., both in their current wording.

    Location: CNC.IBILI - Centre for Neuroscience and Cell Biology, Polo III at the University of Coimbra.

    Duration: 3 months.

    Renewal: Possibly renewable (may not be extended beyond the end date of the project).

    The contracting associated with this research fellowship is dependent on the approval of the extension of the project by the funding entity..

    Scientific orientation: Professora Doutora Ana Rita Costa Silva Álvaro e Professora Doutora Célia Alexandra Ferreira de Oliveira Aveleira.

    Financial conditions: The amount of the fellowship is € 1.104,64 corresponding to the monthly compensation stipulated in the FCT table (https: // www. fct.pt/apoios/bolsas/valores.phtml.en), plus personal accidents insurance.
