Doctoral Programme in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Applied to Chemistry, Materials and Biosciences – PTNMRPhD (PD/00065/2013)

About the PTNMR PhD Program

The aim of the PTNMR doctoral training program is to foster the development of NMR spectroscopy in Portugal by training students within a specific research plan, to take the maximum advantage of this powerful technique in a variety of key research areas:

  • Structural Biology,
  • Material Sciences,
  • Small Molecules,
  • Metabolomics and Metabonomics

The PTNMR PhD Programme is an international PhD Programme between:

-Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa (FCT-UNL)
-Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica António Xavier (ITQB-UNL)
-Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa (IST-UL)
-Universidade de Aveiro (UA)
-Universidade de Coimbra (UC)
-Universidade do Porto (UP)
-Universidade da Beira Interior (UBI)

as institutions providing academic PhD awards and the following partner institutions:

-Universidade do Minho (UM)
-Universidade da Madeira (UMa)
-Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB), Spain
-The Magnetic Resonance Center (CERM), Italy 
-The Bijvoet Center for Biomolecular Research from the University of Utrecht, Netherlands (Bijvoet Center)


The PTNMR PhD program has 3 main objectives

(i) enhance the student’s skills and competences in the understanding of NMR and its application in different research fields;

(ii) develop strong cross-disciplinary skills with complementary techniques and disciplines in Portugal and abroad;

(iii) facilitate and promote the exchange of knowledge, best practices and ideas within the PTNMR network, while carrying out state-of-the-art-research.

This training program will contribute to take the maximum gain of the recently installed national research infrastructure that integrates the national Roadmap of Research Infrastructures.
