BIOTECnico is an interdisciplinary four-year’s Doctoral program, offered by IST and iBB, that provides PhD students with a world-class training in Biotechnology and Biosciences. It is designed to attract national and foreign highly talented and motivated students and to prepare a new breed of creative researchers to translate basic bioscience discoveries into technological innovations in Industrial, Agro-Food, Health and Environmental Biotechnology. The program is anchored in two tracks: Biological Sciences and Biochemical Engineering.

Subject areas:

The Biological Sciences track offers an in-depth understanding of the following subjects:

  • Molecular and Cellular Biology
  • Molecular and Microbial Biotechnology
  • Functional and Comparative Genomics
  • Bioinformatics
  •  Integrative Microbiology
  • Systems and Synthetic Biology
  • Biochemical Engineering
  • Biocatalysis
  • Molecular
  • Bioprocess Engineering
  • Downstream Processing
  • Nanobiotechnology
  • Biomolecular and cellular processes

The programme will help in enabling mastering key technologies in order to develop innovative products and more efficient/sustainable processes. The programme will also contribute to the development of the necessary skills for entrepreneurship in the Biotechnology field, including innovation, leadership, problem-solving and communication.

The Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), University of Lisbon, in collaboration with the Institute for Bioengineering and Biosciences (iBB) at IST, devised an interdisciplinary four-year’s Doctoral program (BIOTECnico) that provides PhD students with a world-class training in Biotechnology and Biosciences. One of the strengths of the program results from the unique teaching/research platform offered at IST/iBB, which exposes students to a high quality interdisciplinary training. The BIOTECnico PhD program is rooted in the IST PhD Program in Biotechnology that produced the first doctors in the area in Portugal in the 90s. The BIOTECnico PhD program is designed to prepare a new breed of creative researchers to translate basic bioscience discoveries into technological innovations in the fields of Industrial, Agro-Food, Health and Environmental Biotechnology.

Goal

The BIOTECnico PhD program is designed to prepare a new breed of creative researchers to translate basic bioscience discoveries into technological innovations in the fields of Industrial, Agro-Food, Health and Environmental Biotechnology.

Team

The research team involved in the program includes both faculty of the Department of Bioengineering at IST, and researchers from the Biological Sciences and Bioengineering Research Groups of iBB.

Degree

The doctoral degree is awarded by the Universidade de Lisboa (www.ulisboa.pt) . The research will take place in the laboratories of the iBB, together with international associate partner laboratories in both academia and in industry.
