Stimulus of Scientific Employment – Individual Support Call 2018
The Institute of Contemporary History (IHC), a leading research centre in the field of Modern and Contemporary History located in Portugal, welcomes applications for Six-years Research Contracts, funded by FCT – Foundation for Science and Technology, acting as host institution under the Stimulus of Scientific Employment Individual Support 2018 Call.
The IHC has facilities both at the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, in Lisbon, and at the University of Évora. It was graded as “excellent” in the last international FCT assessment and develops its activity with an interdisciplinary approach, covering a wide range of topics concerning the conceptualisation, contextualisation, and interpretation of the historical reality for the period between the late eighteenth century and the present time.
Working at the IHC means to be a member of a multicultural, creative, collaborative, and publicly engaged environment that gathers more than 300 researchers. As a modern and contemporary history research unit working on a broad range of themes, we regularly collaborate with the media, museums, archives, city councils, and high schools.
Applicants should present their research plan bearing in mind the IHC’s scientific agenda, as reflected on its Thematic Lines and Research Groups, as well as the conditions set forth in the Stimulus of Scientific Employment programme. Applicants with a relevant track record of securing funding for their research activities are especially welcomed.
