The evaluation of the applications will focus on the candidate's Merit, being applied the following evaluation criteria, valued on a scale of 1 to 5 points (or other scale):

Merit of the candidate - MC (70%):

a) A.1: Academic path (which reflects the classifications of the academic degrees in the scientific areas of the fellowship, according to the reference table), with a weighting of 35%;

b) A.2: Personal Curriculum and portfolio (which reflects the applicant's scientific and professional background, when applicable), with a weighting of 55%;

c) A.3: Motivation letter, with a weighting of 10%.

The classification for the merit of the candidate (MC) will be obtained by applying the following formula:

MC=(A1*0,35)+(A2*0,55)+(A3*0,1)

Candidates classified in the first 3 (three) positions, as long obtaining the minimal classification of 3 (three) in the MC, will be admitted to the Interview phase, with the Jury proceeding to evaluate the following sub-criteria:

Interview – INT (30%):

    1. B.1: Interpersonal skills (30%);
    2. B.2: Knowledge demonstrated in the area of the tender (40%);
    3. B.3: Motivation (20%);
    4. B.4: Language skills (10%).

The classification of the Interview (INT) will be obtained by applying the following formula:

INT=(B1*0,3)+(B2*0,4)+(B3*0,2)+ (B4*0,1)

The final classification (FC) of the Merit of the Candidate (MC) and Interview (INT) will be obtained by applying the following formula:

FC=(MC*0,7)+(INT*0,3)

The jury reserves itself the right not to grant the fellowship if there are no candidates with the appropriate profile for the tender.

If it occurs that the documents proving ownership of the academic degree and diploma, or the respective recognition under the terms of Decree-Law no. 66/2018, of 16 August, do not correspond to the classifications attributed in the evaluation of the academic path and may consequently change the candidate's ranking, the fellowship contracting will not be made effective.
