Applications for the temporary hiring of 40 professors or foreign professors and researchers are open. The call for applications intends to select qualified professionals aiming at the development of scientific, technological and innovation exchange in cooperation with research groups from the University of Brasília (UnB).


“It is yet another strategy to intensify our internationalization. I see it as an opportunity to share knowledge, modernize practices and curricula, in addition to jointly thinking solutions to global problems”, comments the Vice-Rector of UnB, Prof. Enrique Huelva.


Positions will be offered for all Graduate Programs at UnB, with 30 open positions for general ranking, eight for black candidates and two for candidates with disabilities. The contract will be for 40 weekly working hours, with full-time commitment.

The selection aims to strengthen the process of internationalization of graduate programs, to support academic units in the improvement of their graduate programs and strategic projects for institutional development, and to contribute to the improvement of teaching, research, and extension programs, as well as the execution of teacher training programs.
