FAPESP’s Post-Doctoral fellowship is aimed at distinguished researchers with a recent doctorate degree and a successful research track record. The FAPESP Post-Doctoral Fellowships enable the development of research within higher education and research institutions located in the State of São Paulo. Post-doctoral fellowships are available within FAPESP-funded research projects, when calls for applications are issued internationally, or as individual fellowships requested on demand. The candidates for these post-doctoral fellowships should have completed their doctoral programs no more than seven years prior to application. PD Fellowships are 6 to 48 months. The Post-Doctorate fellowship includes a monthly stipend and research contingency funds.
