The FCT call will be open between 29 January and 26 February 2021 (17:00 Lisbon Time) and candidates, holders of PhDs at various stages of career, will apply online directly to the FCT, but their application must be supported by the host institution where they will develop their research plan.

The hosting of candidates is to be confirmed pending (i) an interview, in person or online, with the coordinator of the laboratory in which the proposed application will be integrated as well as (ii) an explicit and justified recommendation of acceptance written by the coordinator of the laboratory in which the proposed application will be integrated, and by at least one additional integrated member of IFILNOVA.
