Science jobs from FAPESP - São Paulo Research Foundation:
Postdoc and research opportunities in Brazil

Fifty percent of all science created in Brazil is produced in the State of São Paulo. The state hosts three of the most important Latin American universities: Universidade de São Paulo (USP), Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP) and Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP). Other universities and 19 research institutes are also located in São Paulo, among them the Technological Institute of Aeronautics (ITA), the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) and the National Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), besides most of Brazilian Industrial P&D.

The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), one of the leading Brazilian agencies dedicated to the support of research, has ongoing programs and support mechanisms to bring researchers from abroad to excellence centers in São Paulo.

The Young Investigators Awards is part of FAPESP's strategy to strengthen the State research institutions, favoring the creation of new research groups. See more about it at

FAPESP Post-Doctoral Fellowship is aimed at distinguished researchers with a recent doctorate degree and a successful research track record.

The fellowship enables the development of research within higher education and research institutions in São Paulo. Postdoc fellowships are available when calls for applications are issued internationally, or as individual fellowships requested on demand.

In the first case, positions are advertised at and candidates are selected through international competition. In the second, the proposal must represent an addition to a pre-existent research group and should be developed in association with faculty in higher education and research institutions in São Paulo.
