The Inter-university Master program in Clinical and Experimental
Neuropsychology (IMCEN) is accepting applications! IMCEN is an innovative
graduate program joining the faculty and research resources from three of
the top Portuguese Universities (Universities of Coimbra, Lisbon and Minho).

We aim at selecting an international group of psychology graduates with
solid background in psychology and neurosciences, highly motivated to
pursue a career in clinical and/or experimental neuropsychology. Students
will be provided with extensive training in cognitive neuroscience along
with training in neuropsychological assessment and rehabilitation. This is
accomplished through a 4 semester training program.

Information on the program and courses can be found here:


A total of 18 students will be selected and allocated to one of three
residence campi (University of Coimbra, University of Lisbon or University
of Minho) according to the application process (6 per campus). The official
teaching language is English.

Applicants have to have a BA in Psychology or Psychological Sciences.
Depending on who they want to work with, specific skills may be desirable –
strong programming skills, experience with fMRI data collection and
analysis, etc. Applicants should select one of the faculty as a potential
supervisor based on shared interests – faculty include European Research
Council grantees and very dynamic and active international researchers in
the area. Specifically, the faculty includes Óscar Gonçalves (
