Post-Doctorate Regulations

Consolidated proposal based on the document written by Ciro Cardoso, to which have been added the topics discussed in the CPLAN meeting of 29 August 2007, the alterations decided in the Collegiate meeting of 7 August 2013, and the modifications made in the CPLAN meeting of 26 May 2015.

Characteristics and Purposes  

The main aims of the post-doctoral internship in PPGH is to receive researchers with doctorates for research and academic interaction activities with members of the collegiate body of PPGH and the Department of History of UFF. It is different from the master’s and doctorate since a member of the teaching staff will propose a candidate to PPGH’s collegiate body and will assume responsibility for the project and for incorporating the researcher in the academic activities of the laboratory or research group.
In addition, there are two categories of internship based on the time since the candidate received their doctorate: I and II. In both cases the proposal shall be submitted by the responsible professor (post-doctoral supervisor) to the planning commission which will judge the suitability of the application to PPGH’s profile

Category I

For researchers with a doctorate for less than seven years.
Material required for application:
    1. Original research project to be carried out in one of PPGH’s research areas.
    2. Plan of work for a year with details of academic activities to be carried out in PPGH.
    3. Presentation of a proposed academic activity to be carried out with undergraduate students. Suggested activities include: a course to be given in the professional cycle of the undergraduate degree, with a total workload of 60 hours (course description and basic bibliography of 10 books);  workshops with sources, research seminars, cycle of debates, cycle of films with debates, etc., with a minimum workload of 20 hours. Proposed activities have to be certified by the coordination of the undergraduate course (Bachelor’s and/or Licentiate) as AAC upon the presentation of the plan of work.
    4. Commitment to present a final report and the research results – or part of them – in a text to be published on the PPGH site.
    5. Completion of the registration form available on the site.

Category II

For researchers with a doctorate for more than seven years, with experience in public or private universities, and on leave from their teaching activities.
Material required for application:
    1. Original research project to be carried out in one of PPGH’s research areas.
    2. Plan of work for a year with details of academic activities to be carried out in PPGH.
    3. Commitment to present a final report and the research results – or part of them – in a text to be published on the PPGH site.
    4. Completion of the registration form available on the site.

Rights and Duties

The supervisor responsible will welcome the researcher, introducing them to the working conditions in the laboratories and research groups, also helping them to carry out their plan of activities.
The researcher shall fulfill the targets stipulated in the project, participate in academic activities related to their plan of activities (seminars, workshops, talks, etc.) and produce a report or text related to the research to be published on the PPGH site.
After the submission of the report and/or text, PPGH will provide a post-doctorate internship certificate, and a GHT Visiting Professor declaration, if an undergraduate course has been taught.
It shall be awarded for one year and can be renewed for one more year, upon a formal request from the supervisor.
