The Mathematics Center of the University of Porto (CMUP), one of the research centres associated with the program, has opened a call for applications to 2 research scholarships to be granted to candidates wishing to pursue a PhD degree in Mathematics at CMUP.
The call is open between July 28th 2021 and August 10th 2021.
All official details for this call can be found on FCUP's website and on EURAXESS.
A research project based at the University of Coimbra has opened a call to a 12 months research scholarship.
The call is open between July 20th 2021 and August 2nd 2021.

The PhD Program in Mathematics is organized in 8 semesters, to which correspond 240 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System).
In the first year, to which correspond 60 ECTS, the student will attend three courses in the 1st semester (plus Seminar) and two courses in the 2nd Semester (plus Thesis Project). Exceptionally, depending on the academic degrees already obtained, the student might be partially exempted from attending the courses.
The courses offered for the first semester ensure that the students have a wide knowledge of mathematics at an advanced level. The courses offered for the second semester direct the formation towards the area in which the research work will be developed.
Courses are taught in Univ. Porto in editions starting in odd years and in Univ. Coimbra in editions starting in even years. They are all taught in English.
