2017 Training Fellowship in Cancer Pharmacology

Universidade Lusófona, Lisboa Portugal (EU)
CBIOS (Lusófona’s Research Center for Biosciences and Health Technologies)

A training research position is available in the Pharmacology and Therapeutics lab at CBIOS of Universidade Lusófona.

CBIOS is a research unit that currently has 30 faculty members, 14 PhD students, a wide range of external collaborators, and more than 30 projects running, producing interdisciplinary and translational research in 3 main domains:

  • Pharmacology and Therapeutics
  • Food Science and Phytochemistry
  • Systems Development and Delivery

Trainees in this CBIOS fellowship will have the opportunity to learn and practice a variety of cell-based techniques useful to assess the impact of (new) drugs on cancer cells’ properties related with the formation of metastases. This includes several in vitro methodologies to evaluate cell proliferation, cell cycle, migration, invasion, and adhesion. Flow cytometry and fluorescence microscopy techniques are also included.

All candidates will be considered, although special consideration will be given to individuals who have:

  1. a solid academic background including, if possible, special interest in cancer biology and pharmacology
  2. good communication skills (written/spoken English)
  3. interest and, if possible, previous research experience working with cell culture techniques
  4. a keen desire to learn

Candidates eligible for CBIOS fellowship will benefit for a “zero” fees policy enjoying all the benefits offered to the university student’s.

After the 1st semester evaluation, candidates will eventually be able to apply to one of the scholarships available for PhD programs.
