Call for Ph.D. fellowships funded by FCT

ICArEHB is now inviting potential candidates for FCT PhD Fellowships in the PhD program in Archaeology of the Universidade do Algarve. We are particularly seeking candidates for the following topics (see Table 2 below for more information):

If you are interested in one of these topics, you should contact the researcher in charge with an email explaining your motivation and interest in the topic and a CV in attachment before the 20th of March 2022. Please also include in cc the funding officer of ICArEHB, Godefroy Devevey (gdevevey@ualg.pt).

If none of this topic is of immediate interest, candidates can develop a proposal that should fit our main research lines:

  • Prehistoric behaviour and dispersals in Africa
  • Dynamics of paleolithic people in Eurasia
  • The emergence and evolution of food producing societies
  • Adaptation to coastal environments
  • The history and evolution of the archaeological sciences

You can contact Godefroy Devevey (gdevevey@ualg.pt) directly with a CV in attachment and together you will identify the ideal supervisor.

Classes at the University of Algarve will start in September 2022, and the main language is English. The fellowships include a monthly salary of 1144.64€ (value 2022) during 48 months, social security, tuition, and fees, as well as yearly hotel and travel for congress presentation. The fellows will also have 22 days of vacation yearly.

A session of information about the application process of FCT will be held in early March and applicants will receive support to write their proposal.

In Table 1 below, you can find the potential supervisors in Faro with their general research areas. You can also find potential supervisors seating elsewhere in the world, just consult the exhaustive list of our team members. ICArEHB can also serve as anchor institution for your PhD fellowship abroad.
