We’re looking for students excited about innovation and technology, willing to develop research oriented to impact society. You’ll will be working as part of the ‘Industrial Ecology and Sustainability’ Laboratory, a group that is growing and seeking highly motivated students who wish to initiate research activities in areas that contribute to the integrated sustainability management of cities.


You’ll integrate BE.Neutral Agenda, a collaborative R&D project that aims to position the Portuguese cities and industry in the future of mobility through a new generation of products and services oriented towards carbon neutrality. With this main objective in mind, you’ll participate actively in the research activities of a Digital Twin for simulation of cities and mobility systems through energy modelling of urban buildings, urban mobility simulation, waste management, public policies, or systems optimisation and AI development.


The award of the studentship implies your enrolment in Master in Mechanical Engineering or Architecture and will have a duration of 6 months, with the possibility of renewal up to 12 months. A monthly maintenance allowance will be paid according to the values for Research Fellowships awarded by FCT in Portugal.
