Pedro Cunha

Technician

Objective

As a freshly graduated Master in Biological Aquatic Resources, I am seeking an opportunity to start working in the aquaculture industry. Having worked as an intern in both a nutrition and immunobiology laboratory (NUTRIMU, one of CIIMAR's research teams) and an experimental aquaculture research facility (DTU Aqua, in Denmark), I feel like I have the ability to learn and acquire a wide range of new skills quickly.
My main goal is not only to get a job but to do something I'm passionate about. And for that, I would be willing to travel and live somewhere new, as I've done a couple of times in the past.
