Four years funding to study both a broad and in Portugal.
The starting process can take a while. So we may have to wait 3 months after until they start to pay your scholarship. But after that there are no more late payments.
No fixed schedules and freedom to work at home.
Very bad work/Life balance. Sometimes have to work in subjects not related to the PhD just because the professor responsible requires it (ex: review papers in is name)
I worked at Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia full-time
Flexible work schedule in most situations.
Grant values haven't been updated in years, due to bureaucracy, a few months may pass between the start of the grant and receiving the first payment.
I have been working at Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia full-time (More than 3 years)
Freedom to do research.
Opportunity to publish papers.
Difficult to obtain travel expenses.
I have been working at Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia full-time (More than 8 years)
The employee can work with total flexibility.
The salary is not increased. There is no technical support.
Advice to Management
I would advise to create a panel which could accompany the progress of the work.
Funding for school fees abroad and pay abroad
Freedom as they trust the advisor completely
Limited time scholarships, no matter what
Too big a difference between students in the country and abroad
