About

Profile of the programme The main objectives of PhD in biochemistry are to provide students with advanced skills and abilities in biochemistry research, being able to independently design, implement and evaluate scientific research projects, in this scientific area, respecting academic standards of quality, integrity and ethics
This doctoral program aims to contribute to national and international development of science and technology through the advanced and specialized training of human resources in Biochemistry, with skills that enable their inclusion in the current market work in research, teaching or the industry
Key learning outcomes The doctoral degree is awarded to those who have demonstrated: -The capacity for systematic understanding in the Biochemistry field; -Competences, skills, and research methods associated with Biochemistry field and its different aspects; -The ability to conceive, plan, adapt and perform significant research complying with the demands imposed by standards of academic quality and integrity; -The production of a significant body of original research which has contributed to challenging the boundaries of knowledge, part of which merited national or international dissemination in referenced publications; -The ability to critically analyze, evaluate and synthesize new and complex ideas; -The ability to communicate with their peers, the rest of the academic community and society in general in their expert field; -The ability to promote technological, social or cultural progress in academic or professional terms in a knowledge-based society
Occupational profiles of graduates The PhD in biochemistry, after completion of their specialized training, should have the ability to continue to develop, deepen and apply their acquired knowledge, either in business or in scientific research institutions, contributing significantly to the scientific and technological development
These professionals can perform functions such as professors and researchers in Universities, Polytechnic Institutes or Research Centres. They can also play highly differentiated functions in laboratories in the areas of Life Science and Health, Biotechnology and related areas
Learning facilities Scientific research within the PhD in biochemistry is mainly performed in the Health Sciences Research Centre in UBI (CICS), which is an interdepartamental Unit of Research and Development funded by the Science and Technology Foundation (FCT). CICS carry out basic, clinical and epidemiological studies in a transversal and vertical, perspective in two major areas: Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences, and Hormones and Inflammation. CICS has a considerable number of PhD researchers with different areas of training, having obtained the classification of Very Good in the last assessment of FCT conducted by an international panel of experts.
The research projects in biochemistry may also be performed in Unit of Textile and Paper Materials and in the Chemistry Department infrastructure and research resources.
