Publish Date: Aug 27, 2015

Deadline: Oct 25, 2015

Jean Monnet Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) offers one-year Jean Monnet Fellowships (renewable for one more year) to scholars who have obtained their doctorate more than 5 years prior to the start of the fellowship, i.e. 1 September 2016 for the academic year 2016/17. The Fellowship programme is open to post-docs, tenure track academics and those wishing to spend their sabbatical at the Robert Schuman Centre. We invite you to become part of a lively and creative academic community. The Centre offers up to 20 Fellowships a year.

Jean Monnet Fellows are selected on the basis of a research proposal and of their CV. The research proposal should fit well with one of the Centre’s main research themes, programmes and projects. The three main research themes of the RSCAS are:

  • Integration, Governance and Democracy;
  • Regulating Markets and Governing Money; and
  • 21st Century World Politics and Europe.

More information about the Centre’s research programmes and projects can be found on the RSCAS web site.

Jean Monnet Fellows are based at the RSCAS and associated with one of the Centre’s projects and programmes. They are expected to actively participate in the academic life of the Centre and to contribute to the activities of the project or programme they are associated with. They can take part in the activities of the EUI postdoctoral programme and are encouraged to collaborate with PhD students, other postdocs and EUI academic staff. 

Those prospective applicants who would like to work with academics based in the RSCAS but who obtained their doctorate less than five years ago (i.e. between 1 September 2011 and 1 September 2016 for the academic year 2016/17) should apply to the Max Weber Programme.

The annual deadline for applications is 25 October .
