Applications will be graded and ranked by the Evaluation Committee in terms of Candidate CV (50%), Motivation Letter (20%) and Recommendation Letters (30%). Only the 25-35 top candidates will be selected for interview, which will focus both on scientific maturity, capacity to think critically, and interest/knowledge of CNC.IBILI areas of intervention.
Please note that this application is independent from University enrollment.
This call is related to applications for PDBEB-sponsored Scholarships. Academic application to the Program via the University of Coimbra website is a different, and independent, process.
