Under the current version of DL No. 57/2016, institutions which have doctoral fellows who work in public institutions or who have been financed by public funds for more than three years, consecutive or not, must open two procedures for the hiring of PhD researchers. The first procedure should be opened as soon as possible, and the second procedure before 31 August 2018.
Whenever the scholarship granting the position to be contracted has been funded directly or indirectly by FCT for more than three years, consecutive or not, FCT will support the contracting expenses, regardless of the selected candidate, through a contract-programme with the institution. Entities that are host institutions have signaled to FCT their scholarship holders who will originate these positions.
The information sent to FCT on the implementation of the transitional rule by the different institutions, with regard to contracts to be funded by FCT, is updated on this page. The list provided refers to the information submitted, and does not mean a validation of the eligibility for FCT funding of these contracts.
