Post-doctoral fellowships in Portugal - International career development opportunities with INL and Marie Curie Actions


The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) is launching a second call within its postdoctoral
fellowship programme – The NanoTRAINforGrowth Programme. INL´s international Postdoctoral
fellowship programme allows for experienced researchers (from all over the world and of
all nationalities) to sketch out a research project and work on their own research idea at INL´s
facilities. The fellows will have a chance to work on breakthrough science; will have access to cuttingedge
technologies, to new state‐of‐the‐art infrastructure and to personal career assistance.

What is the NanoTRAINforgrowth Programme?

NanoTRAINforGrowth is funded under the COFUND Marie Curie Action under the European
Commission’s 7th Framework Programme. This programme will offer a two‐year employment
contract, for the selected fellow to develop their research project at INL´s facilities.

What are the programme´s scientific fields?

- Nanomedicine: molecular diagnostics systems and chips, cell therapies, imaging solutions,
drug delivery systems, biomolecular labels, neuro‐electronics, etc.
- Environmental and food control: Nanotechnology applied to food industry, food safety and
environmental control. Water and soil control, air pollution monitoring. Artificial nanopore
sensors, lab‐on‐a‐chip technologies, smart packaging and labels, food control processes,
biosensing technologies.
- Nanoelectronics: NEMS/MEMS, spintronics, photonics, nanofluidics, carbon‐based devices
(graphene, CNTs), molecular electronics, nanotechnologies to support the above research
- Nanomanipulation: Single molecule/atom manipulation, molecular motors, nanotweezers,
controlled self‐assemby of building blocks for nanodevices.

Who can apply?

NanoTRAINforGrowth will fund experienced researchers that are in Possession of a PhD degree (at
call deadline) and with less than 10 years of full‐time research experience (including the time
taken to acquire the PhD). Applicants may originate from any country inside or outside Europe.
It is mandatory to submit a maximum 10 page research proposal.

How to apply?

The application is made online through the programme portal at:‐fellows

The DEADLINE for application: 17 November 2013 - 23:00 Lisbon time

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
