FGV Sao Paulo Law School opened a selection process for the provision of one postdoctoral fellowship in Brazil. The scholarship is funded by the CAPES-Print Postdoctoral Program, one of the modalities of the School's Global Fellowship Program.
The scholarship lasts for six months, starting in January 2023, and aims to fund research interests aligned with the “Law in the Digital Age” cooperation project, and, more specifically with its sub-line "Rule of Law and Authoritarian Legalism". The cooperation project is coordinated by professor José Garcez Ghirardi and takes place within the scope of the CAPES-PrInt Program, which seeks to promote the internationalization of Brazilian academic graduate programs.
This postdoctoral modality includes researchers or professors, Brazilians or foreigners, who have academic-scientific experience abroad (such as a full PhD course or postdoctoral period that lasted for at least twelve months), to carry out research and teaching activities at FGV Sao Paulo Law School.
This Program aims to promote the mobility of researchers with international experience for the Academic PhD and Master's Program at FGV Sao Paulo Law School, encourage the creation of global research networks to improve the quality of scientific and technological production linked to the graduate studies and expand and strengthen the level of collaboration and joint publications of the program's research groups with teaching institutions and research centres of excellence abroad, in addition to providing greater international visibility to the scientific, technological and cultural production developed at FGV Sao Paulo Law School.
The international cooperation project “Law in the Digital Age”, under the theme “Innovation and Technology”, aims to examine the impact of new technologies and social and economic transformations in the legal professions and in the organization of legal institutions, a related topic to the Academic Program's area of concentration (Law and Development) and transversal to the research agenda of several of its research centres and groups. The sub-line on "Rule of Law and Authoritarian Legalism" seeks to analyze how political leaders and their governments instrumentalize technology and the law to erode democracy, and, similarly, how technology and law can be mobilized to resist these movements and strengthen democracy, both nationally and transnationally.
Applications are open until September 16, 2022.
