If you are interested in being part of our team, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and send us a draft of your project in order to adjust your research interests with the CEC’s own research goals.
The assessment of the applications is not made by the CEC. It is entirely organized by FCT, with no other intervention of the CEC, except for the initial contacts.
The English written application will be submitted online at a soon to be available platform. The page is still in Portuguese, but it will be soon available in English too.
