    University of Coimbra opens a call for one 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: Life and Health Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences and other related areas.

    Skills/Qualifications/Admission requirements: Masters Holders in Life or Health Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences or related areas with expertise (eg. Publications) in in-vitro models of ageing research, including cell cultures and registered as PhD students in health sciences, biomedicine or pharmaceutical Sciences or registered in non-degree courses in health sciences or biomedicine.

    “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 thefellowship is contractualized. Candidates are only required to meet the requirements to enroll in the training offer. If there are candida

    tes already enrolled (including attending a course), they compete on an equal footing with those who are not enrolled.

    Work plan/ Objectives: The expected work will address work package 1 activities “Changes of cardiovascular repair, metabolic and cerebral occurring in parallel with ageing” within the project "Healthy Aging 2020”. The work program contributes to the main objective to clarify changes in hippocampal neurogenesis in the adult mammalian hippocampus exposed to different environmental enrichment conditions, diet and physical exercise, and its correlation with cognitive performance and ageing.

    The selected applicants will receive scientific training to develop research work using in vitro cell culture models of neural stem cells and microglial cell cultures.

    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.
