Mobility for Researchers & Visiting Professors

 

School of Education offers two kinds of mobility programs for Researchers  and Visiting Professores: the Phd post Doc program and the Research collaboration program.

 

PhD Post Doc Program 

The Phd post doc is a program supported by the Research Committee for researchers that have taken their Phd diploma within 7 years. It is an opportunity for researchers to enhance the level of scientific excellence both of the University of Sao Paulo, and their home Institution, as well as to improve their own professional development.

Projects have to be submitted within a minimum of 60 days before the starting date of the research. The internship duration ranges from six months to one year, and can be extended upon request and assessment. The program accepts full or part time researchers, with or without a scholarship (Resolution inserir link  http://www.leginf.usp.br/?resolucao=resolucao-copq-no-7406-de-03-de-outubro-de-2017 ), according to the submitted proposal which is evaluated by an Assessment institution external to FEUSP.
