Overview

COVID-19 NOTICE: In light of the pandemic conditions, and given that a post-doctoral internship requires presence at CES, the institution recommends internship proposals to include a schedule starting after September 2021. This date may, however, be revised in due course, according to the evolution of the situation and the resulting guidelines from the competent authorities, namely the Directorate General of Health of the Portuguese Republic.

The title of visiting post-doctoral research intern is attributed to the doctoral researcher who undertakes periods of stay at the Centre for Social Studies with the objective of developing supervised research activities according to a previously approved work plan by CES Scientific Council. This visit’s length of stay may be from 12 to 18 months.

The application for post-doctoral internship scientific hosting must be submitted between 1 and 15 of January, between 16 and 31 of May or between 1 and 15 of September of each calendar year. The results will be communicated within a period of no more than 30 days.

The application is comprised of motivation letter, statement of acceptance of the CES researcher who will supervise the visit, CV, copy of doctoral certificate, work plan and chronogram, and must be submitted to posdoutoramentos@ces.uc.pt. Any related clarification request must also be sent to the same email address.

All the communications, publications or materials for the dissemination of scientific activities resulting from the post-doctoral visit must mention having benefitted from the internship, with a clear reference to the supervisor and to the research conducted during the stay at the Centre for Social Studies, University of Coimbra.
