    Pros

    FAPESP provides the best (i.e. higher value) scholarship for PhD and MSc students in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

    Cons

    Highly bureaucratic, demanding financial and scientific reports annually. However, this is typical for most research funding agencies.

    Postdoctoral Fellow Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at FAPESP (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in September 2008.

    Interview

    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")).
