CSSRR Economics/Sociology–October 16, 2009

Postdoctoral Fellowships at the European University Institute, Florence (Italy) Call for applications: The deadline for applications for the academic year 2010-2011 is Oct. 25, 2009.

Max Weber Fellowships The Max Weber Programme


funded by the European Commission (DG Education), is the largest postdoctoral programme for young researchers in the social sciences in the world. Max Weber Fellowships are for 1 or 2 years and are open to candidates who have received a doctorate in the social sciences (economics, law, political science, sociology, history and related fields) within the last 5 years. The Max Weber fellowships are designed for junior post-docs who want to advance in their research and academic training in an active multidisciplinary environment before entering the international job market, or who are already in the early stages of their academic careers. A first round of Max Weber Fellowships in Economics will be offered by mid-November, allowing successful candidates to postpone entering the tenure-track international job market. In the past all economics Fellows looking for an academic job have found suitable positions, having received support from the programme. Other candidates have found interesting tenure track positions but, having then been selected for a MWFellowship, postponed their starting date to spend a productive year as Max Weber Fellows. Fellows are selected on the basis of their research accomplishments and potential, their academic career interests, and the availability of the EUI faculty to provide mentorship. Each year circa 45 postdoctoral fellows are part of the programme. For more information on how to apply please see:


Jean Monnet Fellowships. Through its Jean Monnet Fellowship Programme the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies offers fellowships to post-docs in an early stage of their academic career. During their stay at the RSCAS, fellows work on a research topic that fits well in the overall research profile of the RSCAS


and participate in the academic life of the Centre and of the EUI. Each fellow is assigned a professorial mentor. Jean Monnet Fellowships usually have a duration of 12 or 24 months and are open to candidates who have received a doctorate within the last 7 years. The main criteria during the selection procedure are the CV, the overall scientific quality of the proposal, and the fit of the proposal with the research programme of the Centre.
