One of the key five major missions of BioISI is advanced training. The opportunities for advanced training at BioISI focus around 2 major actions: PhD programmes and training programmes for Postdocs.
BioISI hosts the BioSys PhD programme evaluated as one of the top PhD programme for the life sciences in Portugal. Inspired by the EMBL International PhD programme, BioSys was approved for funding for 4 editions/8 years, to host a total of 44 PhD students who will receive multidisciplinary training in biological and computational subjects.
BioISI actively promotes training opportunities and career development for post-doctoral fellows through a dedicated series of seminars and other dedicated events including an annual retreat and training courses.
The BioISI Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Programme (IPP) provides the basis for the recruitment a new group of 6 young researchers into BioISI teams every 2-yrs to effectively develop cross-disciplinary research, with the aim of establishing a new group of young international innovators. BioISI will equip these postdocs fellows with a broader range of skills to optimally prepare them for their challenging future research careers.
