Applications are now open for the “Young Talents” scholarships within the “Science without Borders” program, a recent joint effort of the Brazilian agencies CAPES and CNPq. These are generous postdoctoral scholarships for carrying out research in a Brazilian institution for a duration of 2 to 3 years with a starting date between February and April 2014. The application must be submitted by the host researcher in Brazil and the deadline is November 1, 2013.
Another type of funding for postdoctoral research in Brazil is awarded by the agency CNPq alone. This funding has a duration of typically 1 year (some times extendable to 2 years), a starting date between June and September 2014 and a deadline of January 31, 2014. (Note that the call with this deadline is not open yet but it will very soon).
If you wish to apply for funding for a postdoctoral position in Black Hole Physics in the Department of Cosmology, Relativity and Astrophysics (ICRA) at the research centre Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas (CBPF) in Rio de Janeiro, please email a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and a statement of research interests to Marc Casals at mcasals[AT]cbpf.br. If you wish to apply for a “Young Talents” scholarship please do so as soon as possible before the deadline of November 1.
