Researchers´ Representatives

CiBB Postdoctoral Researchers are all the researchers who have received a doctoral degree, belong to a research group of the CiBB R&D unit and are employed through a temporary appointment of any nature (e.g fellowships, contracts under the law DL57/2017, fixed-term contract, among others). With this aim in mind, the CiBB Postdoc Representatives Committee pledges to ensure the representation of its members in the scientific council of the CiBB, promote and support the organization of seminars, workshops, symposia, conferences and activities of science communication, promote informal scientific and social activities to facilitate the interaction between CiBB postdoctoral researchers and support other activities proposed by CiBB postdoctoral researchers.

The CiBB PhD students representatives are formed by 6 PhD students, representing the three thematic strands of the CiBB consortium (Neuroscience and Disease; Metabolism, Ageing and Disease; Innovative Therapies). We aim to serve as the representative body of the CiBB PhD students working at the CiBB consortium (CNC-UC/iCBR-FMUC). Therefore, the team ensures the representation of its members in the scientific council of the CiBB consortium, promotes the organization of seminars, workshops, and activities of science communication and promotes informal scientific and social activities to facilitate the interaction between CiBB PhD students.

To promote literacy and well-being during the PhD, CiBB PhD students' representatives organized seminars on "Financial Literacy for Dummies" and "Mental Health during the PhD" open to the entire scientific community, with positive feedback. Solidarity collections were also organized one during the Christmas season in which the goods collected were delivered to Cáritas Diocesana de Coimbra, and another in collaboration with Académica Start UC, which were delivered to the Acreditar Association on World Food Day. To improve the conditions of CiBB's doctoral students, we surveyed them to understand the students' mental health needs/conditions. With the results obtained from the survey, we will discuss strategies that can be adopted with CiBB management to improve the well-being of the entire doctoral student community.
