Post-mag & Post-doc Programme

Since 2023, the Faculty of Fine Arts of Brno University of Technology (FFA) has introduced a new FFA Post-mag/Post-doc Programme, the purpose of which is to support the involvement of recent graduates in professional life and at the same time to strengthen the development of creative (artistic, research or innovative) activities of the faculty. The programme consists in the creation of short-term positions (researcher or postdoctoral fellow), which are filled on the basis of annually repeated open calls.
