Publicado em 14 janeiro 2020

The Brazilian State Funding Agencies, articulated by its National Council (CONFAP), the Royal Society, the Academy of Medical Sciences, the British Academy and the Newton Fund, invite applications for their Research Mobility Grants. These enable UK researchers to develop the strengths and capabilities of their research groups through training, collaboration and reciprocal visits with partners in research groups in Brazil.

Applicants must hold a PhD degree and a permanent academic post or postdoctoral position in the UK that extends beyond the grant period. They must also have a Brazilian-based collaborator as a co-applicant. Researchers may be from the natural sciences, engineering, medical sciences, including clinical and patient-oriented research, as well as social sciences and humanities fields. There must be a host researcher in the state of São Paulo, who does not necessarily have to be in charge of an ongoing FAPESP grant.

A total of four types of grants are available:

For UK researchers aiming to receive support from a funding agency outside the state of São Paulo for a mission of up to 15 days, covering airfares, travel insurance and daily support For UK researchers aiming to receive support from a funding agency outside the state of São Paulo for a mission from 16 days up to three months, covering airfares, travel insurance and a monthly scholarship of BRL 7,000 For UK researchers aiming to receive support from an institute in the state of São Paulo for a mission from one week up to one month, covering airfares, travel insurance and daily support For UK researchers aiming to receive support from an institute in the state of São Paulo for a mission from one to 12 months, covering airfares, travel insurance and a monthly scholarship worth up to BRL 10,680 for young researchers and up to BRL 15,870 for full professors

Closing date: 6 April 2020 at 4 pm UK time
