CEBRAP’s International interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Program is meant to complement the training of doctors by providing them with top-notch interdisciplinary experience, enabling them to tackle research topics beyond the boundaries of the fields in which they have been trained and to acquire a broader view of the major issues in our contemporary societies. The program also expects that an international group of doctors will allow for a comparative framework in researched topics.
The IIPP is aimed at doctors with a PhD in anthropology, political science, demography, law, economics, philosophy, history, and sociology, whose interests are aligned with those of the CEBRAP´s research program.
The program will select up to 15 PHDs from different nationalities and will last for one year, with a continuous 9-month stay at CEBRAP and a 3-month at a partner foreign institution.
The IIPP draws on a successful previous experience by CEBRAP, the Cadre Training Program (1986-2002), later changed into the Postdoctoral Program (2003-2007), which enrolled 116 young Brazilian researchers.
