    I have been working at FAPESP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best scholarship in SP, serious research agency, good amount of funds to do research. Money to go abroad in conferences, etc.

    Cons

    I don't see any cons with this company. They are an example of research agency in the sp state. I wish all states in Brazil had one agency like this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your research seriously and carefully and explain it better in your reports. You won't have any problem.

    Postdoctoral Fellow Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at FAPESP in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    This is relatively simple: You should fill in all the docs on the website. But before, you should have found a laboratory, in SP, and you should convince the head of the lab to welcome you and your project.
    In my case, it has been an informal interview, in person, during a congress (Sept 2007 not 2008).
    As a post-doc, you have to write a project, which will go through several processes and several levels of assessments by professionals of the field.
    Then, after 6-8 months, a formal answer will be given for a two-years contract (extensible for one more year but you have to go through the same process (a bit shorter, only 3 months, but the answer can be "no")).
