Training Fellowship in Skin Physiology-2019

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

One training research position is available in the Integrative Physiology lab at CBIOS of Universidade Lusófona.

CBIOS is a research unit that currently has 30 faculty members, 16 PhD students, a wide range of external collaborators, and over 30 projects running, (more at producing interdisciplinary and translational research in 3 main domains:

  • Pharmacology and Therapeutics(where our lab is inserted)
  • Food Science and Phytochemistry
  • Development and Deliveryof Systems

Trainees will have access to a variety of state of the art techniques and methods to assess multiple skin physiological functions and mechanisms. Technologies include high frequency ultrasound, evaporimetry, laser Doppler flowmetry, optical spectroscopy and transcutaneous gazometry. Several dynamical methodologies (in vivo, in vitro and ex vivo) have been developed and compared in our lab to assess safety and efficacy of topical products, including cosmetics. So, these could also be included in the scope of this training program. The group’s research interests are wide, ranging from skin physiology / pathophysiology to studying the impact of drugs and non-drugs (cosmetics, food supplements, others) on skin, as part of the Systems Modelling   research lab.

All candidates will be considered, although special attention will be given to individuals who have 1) a solid academic background (master degree as minimum requirement) with special interest in experimental dermatology / cosmetology, 2) good communication skills (written/spoken English), 3) interest and, if possible, previous research experience working with human volunteers and/or patients in a clinical research environment, and 4) a keen desire to learn.

Candidates eligible for this CBIOS fellowship will benefit for a “zero” fees policy enjoying all the means offered to the university students. After the 1stsemester evaluation, facilitate access to our PhD (European Title) program in Health Sciences (partnership with U Alcalá, Spain) is possible.
