Gulbenkian in Portugal, best Ph.D. program ever?

What about a program that is interdisciplinary and means it, including various things close to evolutionary biology, and also history of the field? It brings in a tiny class of 15 people or so from around the world to a lovely place not far from the Portuguese beaches. It has lots of outside teachers rotating through. I went last year.

“Research at the IGC (http://www.igc.gulbenkian.pt/pages/groups.php/A=143___collection=article___group=1) revolves around
four main axes: Evolutionary Biology, Quantitative Biology, Integrative Cell and Developmental Biology, and Immunobiology. The
broad‐scoped nature of the IGC research programme favours original approaches to outstanding biological questions that
promote bridges across different disciplines and methodologies.”
