Location:  Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Brazilian agency CNPq has regular calls for 1-year (possibly extendable to 2 years) postdoctoral fellowships for carrying out research in a Brazilian institution. The application to CNPq must be submitted by the host researcher in Brazil and the current call has a deadline of August 21, 2015, for a position to start some time between March and June 2016. There are also similar fellowships (CNPq-TWAS) which are specifically for applicants from a developing country and have an application deadline of August 24, 2015.

If you wish to apply for a CNPq postdoctoral fellowship to carry out research in Black Hole Physics in the Institute of Cosmology, Relativity and Astrophysics at the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas (CBPF) in Rio de Janeiro, please email a C.V. with a list of publications, a statement of research interests and two reference letters (directly sent by the referees) to Dr. Marc Casals at mcasals[AT]
