Transdisciplinary Doctoral Programme in Microbiome Science co-funded by the EU (Call H2020-MSCA-COFUND-2020) and managed by the University of Naples Federico II through its Task Force on Microbiome Studies (www.tfm.unina.it),
Microbiome activity is essential for the life on our planet and the well-being of organisms, including humans, animals, insects and plants.
CRESCENDO is a Transdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Microbiome Science co-funded by the EU (Call H2020-MSCA-COFUND-2020) and managed by the University of Naples Federico II through its recently established Task Force on Microbiome Studies (www.tfm.unina.it), that combines facilities and experience of more than 150 Academic scientists from 14 different UNINA Departments in the areas of Biology, Medicine, Food and Agricultural Sciences, Chemistry, Pharmacy, Engineering and Social Sciences, thus representing an ideal transdisciplinary environment to support training and research for young researchers in the microbiome field. CRESCENDO Doctoral Programme will recruit 10 international Early Stage Researchers (ESRs-PhDs) who will be involved in research and training in the Microbiome field, leading to a worldwide appreciated PhD degree valuable in terms of their future career perspectives. CRESCENDO represents the only EU funded project for a doctoral programme in Microbiome Science, developing trans-disciplinary Microbiome scientists with intersectoral and international experience and with a multidisciplinary scientific and technical background.
CRESCENDO aims to select a total of 10 international Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs; PhD candidates) to be enrolled by UNINA/TFM in a doctoral course of study lasting 36 months (3 years) leading to the awarding of a doctoral degree.
