Evaluation & Deadlines



The evaluation panel is constituted by:

  • Jorge Romão (President. University of Lisbon – IST)
  • Francisco del Aguila (University of Granada)
  • Enrique Zas (University of Santiago de Compostela)
  • Kostas Kokotas (University of Tuebingen)
  • Andreas Glindemann (Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich)
  • João Alves (University of Vienna)
  • Marcella Diemoz (INFN)
  • José Valle (IFIC - University of Valencia)

The selection committee will rank the applications (No Ex‐aequo) taking into account the merits of the candidate, the quality and relevance of the work plan and the quality and adequacy of the supervision. Interviews with the applicants will be conducted individually. Each of these items will be scored from 1 (minimum) to 5 (maximum) and will be clearly justified so that the candidate is able to understand the score obtained.i

The final ranking will be based on a weighted average with weights 5 (4 candidate + 1 interview), 3 (work plan) and 2 (supervision).

A larger weight is put on the CV of the candidate, as the other components are already restricted by the programme rules. Among other elements, the involvement of the applicant in research activity related to the PhD must be guaranteed to constitute his/her main occupation.

The jury will indicate the minimal classification that a candidate should obtain in order to be qualified for a grant. One third of the available grants will be reserved for qualified candidates with a supervisor from the Coimbra University. In the case there will be not enough candidates in such conditions the vacant grants will not be awarded in this year call.

Applicants can apply to proposed thesis from 20th June to 17th July.

Researchers may select a candidate in proposed thesis from 18th to 31st July.
