  1. I´m at the moment also writing Post-Doc grant applications. So I had a look into funding opportunities recently as well.

    1) If someone wants to do a Post-Doc in Germany (or Germans who want to do a Post-Doc abroad) can get information on funding from the Deutsche Froschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) here:

    2.) Basically the same is true for the Deutsche Akademische Austauschdienst (DAAD). Info on DAAD grants here (the site is in German, but I guess if you contact them, they can send you English versions of documents as well):

    Hope that helps a bit.


  2. If you are interested in PhD or postdoc work in Brazil, my colleague in Sao Paulo sent me this:

    University of São Paulo invites researchers at the early stages of their careers (graduate students and postdocs) to develop a project (for a period of 5 months) with one of our collections (Museu de Zoologia da Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil).

    If you know of possible candidates interested to come to Brazil to conduct research this call may be of any help. Thank you for your attention.
