With a sub-project under the title Portugal and the Others – Societies, Economies, and Cultures, the CHSC intends to develop research in the domains of History of the High Middle Ages, particularly Ecclesiastical History and Socio-Political and Cultural History, taking into account the deep interest of this period for the study of the origins of Portugal and its institutions. One of the goals of this research project is the systematic survey and the publishing of various sources which may allow for the writing of works referring to this age.
Applicants must possess a Ph. D, preferably in History, and a three year research practice after they have obtained such a degree. Fluency in Portuguese language is required, as well as knowledge of Latin. Applicants with knowledge of Arabian will be preferred.
Applicants shall demonstrate skills for research by means of a Curriculum Vitae, in which, above all, academic qualifications, works published, and integration in individual and collective projects must be mentioned. The presentation of two recommendation letters is also advised, in order to assert the applicants’ interest and capability for the work to be carried on.
It is possible that the selected candidate may participate in seminars, conferences or other scientific meetings.
This scientific job performed in full time (40 hours per week) during five years will assure an yearly income of about 42.500 €.
Applications must be sent until the 30th September 2008. Applications missing any of the required documents will not be taken into consideration. The CHSC will afterwards ask for official confirmation of the curricular data put forward by the applicants.
Please note: The final appointments for these positions are dependent upon the approval from Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia of the pre-selected candidates proposed by the University of Coimbra.
