The results of the Individual Call to Scientific Employment Stimulus of the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology were announced on Monday, and the IHC has achieved seven new positions, out of 43 applications submitted – a success rate of 16%, above the global average of 12%.
The IHC will host Xurxo Ayán as principal researcher. Xurxo is a contemporary archaeologist who will move from Spain to Portugal. After studying vestiges of the Spanish civil war, he will now devote himself to the archaeology of the Estado Novo concentration camps, within a comparative framework in the Iberian context and using public archaeology methodologies.
In the category of assistant researcher, Alice Cunha, who was already a postdoctoral researcher at the IHC, was now recognised for her work on the history of Portugal’s integration into the European Union, receiving the highest score from the History and Archaeology Panel for this level of contract.
In the category of junior researcher, the IHC will host five researchers, three of them returning after working in other institutions, with research topics as varied as the Holocaust, censorship of the press, women writers in the nineteenth century, or institutional collective action. They are: Cláudia Ninhos, Joana Dias Pereira, Rita Luís, Aurora Almada e Santos, and Pedro Urbano.
The Individual Call to Scientific Employment Stimulus had 4102 applications admitted, and 500 contracts were awarded in four categories: Junior (276), Assistant (154), Principal (66) and Coordinator (4).

From the Trenches to the Hospital:
Portugal, Health and the Great War
The Portuguese participation in the Great War had political, economic and social consequences that were felt in the following decades, and that also had an impact on health. Through the mobilisation of over 100 000 men, the young Portuguese Republic (1910) hoped to obtain international recognition and protect its African colonies from British and German interests.
Although it might seem contradictory, the First World War triggered a set of technical and scientific advances in healthcare. But this total war would also forever mark the lives of many men, who returned with physical and psychiatric traumas, and who were soon consigned to oblivion.
Through a set of objects, photographs and videos, this exhibition explores this double impact of the Great War on health, in Portugal.
