Target Population

The main target of this PhD program are students with a biology or ecology background, or similar related areas such as agronomy, forestry, environmental engineering, biotechnology, biochemistry, veterinary and medicine. However highly motivated students with a different background outside life sciences can also be considered, such as geography, sociology, engineering, economy, statistics and IT. 

In addition, a limited number of grants might be allocated to students coming from Mozambique, Angola, Cabo Verde, Guiné-Bissau, São Tomé e Principe and Timor-Leste, as a contribution to the much needed education of scientists in those countries, provided they fulfill minimum academic criteria Thus, preference is given to the education and training of staff from Universities or State Agencies of those countries, so that they are obliged, at the end of their PhD, to return to their home countries and or have a position at their home institutions.
