DL 57/2016 Transitory Rule

Under DL no. 57/2016 in its current wording, institutions with doctoral fellows who have been working in public institutions, or who are funded by public funds, for more than three years, consecutive or interpolated, were to open two calls for tenders to hire doctoral researchers. The first procedure should be opened as soon as possible, and the second procedure before August 31, 2018.

Whenever the Studentship that gave rise to the position to be contracted has been directly or indirectly funded by the FCT for more than three years, consecutive or interpolated, the FCT shall cover the costs of hiring, regardless of the applicant selected, by entering into a program-contract with the institution. The entities that are host institutions of these grant recipients have signaled to the FCT their grant recipients that gave rise to these positions.

The information sent to the FCT about the implementation of the transitory rule by the different institutions covered, only regarding contracts to be funded by the FCT, is updated on this page.
