Exchange of junior researchers

Exchange of junior researchers

The objective of our exchange programme is to promote the training of junior researchers in the areas of tropical biodiversity and ecosystem research. Exchanges can involve co-supervision of PhD projects, and typically include students from both CIBIO/BIOPOLIS and our partner institutions in Lusophone Africa and beyond.  The overall objective is to contribute to the training and development of a new generation of researchers working in tropical Africa.

Like secondments, exchanges of junior researchers are bidirectional. PhD students from CIBIO (initially from the BIODIV Doctoral programme) will join research teams working on tropical field projects from African partner institutions, and junior researchers from partner institutions will receive training in Twinlab institutions and during visits to CIBIO in Portugal.
