In compliance with the Government Program and subsequent to a prior call for applications to select host scientific institutions, this public notice is to announce the opening of an international call for applications for 1000 PhD research positions, to be contracted under the individual employment contract regime.
Specific calls for applications are open for each selected institution under the following conditions:
The list of the institutions already selected along with the number of open positions for this call for applications is available on the FCT portal. The institutions may, in special cases, establish and resort to waiting lists.
Other scientific institutions may apply for program contracts on their own initiative, after applications for pre-selection have been considered, under the same conditions as those described above. Program contracts will be signed only after the FCT has evaluated the merit of the institution and of the candidates pre-selected and proposed by the institution.
Lastly, individual applications will be accepted from researchers who do not find positions that are appropriate to their area of research in the above mentioned institutions and who request advice and assistance in finding a position in Portugal.
