I am considering a possible jump across the pond to Portugal, but am having difficulty evaluating potential job opportunities. I work at a college in the U.S., hold a PhD, and have over 15 years of teaching and administrative experience.
In the U.S. we have several websites that aggregate all academic jobs in the country and allow filtering by location, discipline, experience level, etc. One can also go to a specific institution’s website and easily navigate to open positions.
It seems this is not possible in Portugal. The few institutions that I was able to navigate (thanks Google translate) don’t seem to list open positions. An academic webiste suggested I check 3 newspapers (Diario de Noticias, Expresso, and Jornal de Noticias) on various days of the week. This has been a daunting endeavor with limited Portuguese and bureaucratic decree language.
Is there any single place for international applicants to review open positions? Has anyone on the forum successfully navigated the hiring process at a public or private institution of higher education in Portugal? I’d loved to hear your experience and suggestions.
