Portugal for researchers

The portal EURAXESS Portugal provides information and support to researchers moving to and from Portugal. Together with other national EURAXESS portals, it complements the European portal operated by the European Commission, by providing national and local information. The Portuguese services centres assist you and your family on matters relating to your stay here in Portugal.

EURAXESS Services is a network of more than 200 centres located in 38 European countries. All services of the EURAXESS Network are free of charge.The members of the Portuguese EURAXESS Services Network are signatories to the Declaration of Commitment.

The EURAXESS Portugal portal is intended to replace, first partially and later fully, the ERACareers portal. It is operated by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia. Any questions should be directed to euraxess@fct.pt.

ERACareers.pt to be discontinued

The ERACareers.pt portal will start its dismemberment on January 1st, 2010. The majority of its services will be transfered to the Euraxess.pt portal. Some services will be transfered to other servers operated by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia. The former include job announcements for doctoral degree holders in the framework of its successful Ciência 200x program or announcements or Invited Chairs at Portuguese Universities and research institutions. The latter include such things as grants exclusively offered to students at Portuguese Universities (BII grants). This is intended to clarify the international nature of the Euraxess.pt portal.

FCT is comitted to make this transition as painless as possible to the users of the very successful ERACareers.pt portal.
