Scientific area: Archaeology.

Skills/Qualifications/Admission requirements: Student enrolled in a master’s course (2nd cycle studies) in archaeology aiming to consolidate their scientific training through the development of research works leading to the attainment of the respective academic degree, giving preference to candidates with research experience in field of the study of Palaeolithic lithic industries and archaeological field work.

Are eligible for the grant:

a) National citizens or citizens of other Member States of the European Union;

b) Citizens of third States;

c) Stateless persons;

d) Beneficiaries of the political refugee status.

Although the recipients must be enrolled in a cycle of studies leading to the attribution of an academic degree, at the time of application it is not necessary for the candidate to have made such an enrollment, and proof of enrollment must be presented until the fellowship is contractualized. Candidates are only required to meet the requirements to enroll in the training offer. If there are candidates already enrolled (including attending a course), they compete on an equal footing with those who are not enrolled.

Work plan/ Objectives: The main activity carried out by the fellow is to study Middle Palaeolithic industries from the Cardina-Salto do Boi site using technological approach and lithic raw material fieldwork and laboratory analyses.

Regime: The attribution of the fellowship does not generate or entitle a relation of a legal labour nature, and the fellowship is undertaken in an exclusive dedication regime. The fellowship holder is awarded the Fellowship Statute of the UC, in its current wording, according to the Research Fellowship Holder Statute, and according to the Regulation for Research Fellowships of the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, I.P., both in their current wording.

Location: Côa Museum

Duration: 12 months.

Renewal: The fellowship contract may eventually be renewed during project eligibility.

Scientific orientation: Thierry Aubry (advisor).

Financial conditions: The amount of the fellowship is € 835.98 corresponding to the monthly compensation stipulated in the FCT table (https://www.fct.pt/apoios/bolsas/valores.phtml.en), plus social security (Seguro Social Voluntário, first level contributions) and personal accidents insurance. The payment will be made by bank transfer. This amount will not be increased during the entire period of the fellowship duration.

Selection methods: Based on the curriculum evaluation (AC) and interview (E) to the 3-best classified. Selection criteria: In the curriculum evaluation (AC) the following criteria will be considered:

M = absolute merit of academic training, level of qualification certified by the competent authorities;

PT = previous experience in areas directly related to the work plan and adequacy of the candidate's profile;

CA = additional characteristics such as demonstrated motivation for the work to be developed and availability to start functions. In the interview (E) the following criteria will be considered:

E1 = discussion of any of the points of the curriculum that were not fully clarified through the simple curriculum evaluation;

E2 = discuss the work plan to be developed, considering the objectives and methodologies established during the project candidature application.

The classification formula for the relative positioning of candidates will be AC=M*0.5+PT*0.4+CA*0.1 where M refers to absolute merit, PT to the adequacy of the candidate's profile to the work plan and CA to additional characteristics such as demonstrated motivation for the work to be developed and availability to start functions. Curriculum evaluation (AC) aims to analyse the qualifications of candidates and is expressed on a scale from 0 to 20, with valuation up to the hundredths.

The interview (E=E1*0,5+E2*0,5) aims to clarify any of the points of the curriculum and discuss the work plan and is expressed on a scale from 0 to 20 values, with valuation up to the hundredths.

The ranking formula for the final placement will be AC*0.7+E*0.3.
