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.

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.
