Solicitation for applications for research grant in soft matter theory/simulation in Portugal

The Portuguese Science Foundation, has issued a call for applications for research fellowships. These are similar to UK EPSRC 5-year fellowships and are intended for candidates with a minimum of 3 years' research experience after their PhD. Awards are very competitive and will be made at three levels: starting, development and consolidation, depending on seniority. More information can be found at:

We are searching for candidates who might consider joining our Centre for Theoretical and Computational Physics (CFTC) at Lisbon University:

We cover a broad spectrum of topics in the theory (and, increasingly, simulation) of soft condensed matter. Currently our focus is on the statics and dynamics of colloids and liquid crystals in external fields and/or at textured surfaces. We have also applied to become a doctoral training centre (result pending), together with two other Portuguese, two Brazilian, one UK university (Cambridge) and one Continental European (ETH Zuerich) university.
