This is an opportunity under Guest Scientist Fellowship conditions, which does not require a formal competition, but C4G Executive Committee believes that the most correct process is to allow anyone in the C4G community who fits the profile to show their interest in taking the job.

The candidate must fulfill the following conditions:

This announcement is a consequence of recently changes in legislation regarding PhD hiring by public institutions and public organizations (see DL 57/2016 and Lei 57/2017). After consulting FCT about the new rules, FCT asked for the C4G Executive Committee to wait for new procedures´ explanation about Researches Infrastructures hiring PhD personnel. By acknowledging that this process could take too much time and, in fact, get a lack of solution in this new scenario, C4G Executive Committee requested FCT, exceptionally, the permission to hire C4G Technical Director under Guest Scientist Fellowship, which was granted by FCT.
