The São Paulo Schools of Advanced Science, funded by FAPESP, have already brought together hundreds of students and researchers from different countries. Each SPSAS offers short courses in advanced science and technology topics, contributing to the training of participants. The professors at SPSAS are researchers of high visibility worldwide, evidenced by elements such as the receipt of high-level scientific awards, publications of recognized impact by the community in the area and leadership in internationally renowned organizations.
SPSAS Amazon is for early career researchers that have earned his/her PhD from 2015 onward. Exceptionally PhD candidates (graduate students, currently registered in the last year of their Doctoral/PhD courses), can also be accepted. We encourage applications from students from different academic disciplines (natural, social, and human sciences, engineering, communication) provided their academic work and study is related to the themes of the school and related topics.
To promote the diversity of the School’s participants, equity in ethnic and gender representation will also be considered.
