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 program has 3 main objectives

(i) enhance the student’s skills and competencies 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 taking the maximum gain of the recently installed national research infrastructure that integrates the national Roadmap of Research Infrastructures.
