Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholar Award

January 15, 2015

The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program is offering an additional application cycle for a select number of 2015-2016 postdoctoral awards, with a deadline of January 15, 2015. Brazil is among the group countries participating: 

Brazil – Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholar Award in All Disciplines (5551)

Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholar Awards are open to U.S. scholars who have recently completed their doctoral/terminal degree—typically within the five previous years. These grants present an excellent opportunity for recently minted PhDs to deepen their expertise, to acquire new skills, to work with additional resources and to make connections with others in their fields. Postdoctoral awards are available in STEM fields, the arts, humanities and social sciences.

Scholars will be expected to engage with graduate students in the host country and to be involved with host university training in cutting edge research in their specializations. In addition to their primary research or teaching activities, grantees will be asked to give public talks, mentor students and otherwise engage with the host country academic community.
