The Max Weber Programme is the largest international postdoctoral programme in the Social Sciences and Humanities in Europe. It offers around 50-55 fully funded Fellowships to suitably qualified researchers from anywhere in the world who work in or across the relevant disciplines of the EUI (Economics, History, Law and Social and Political Sciences and their subfields). The working language of the Programme is English.
 
The aim of the MWP is to provide Fellows with the experience of membership of a vibrant academic community, to which they make a central contribution. It is unique in offering a structured Programme that not only supports the individual research of Fellows but also helps them develop the various skills they will need in their future academic careers.

The Programme covers all aspects of an academic career, including support for academic writing in English, applying for research grants and the opportunity to teach in some of Europe’s leading universities.

In addition the Programme and its Academic Careers Observatory help Fellows develop a strategy for identifying and applying for jobs, and Max Weber Fellows can be found in top academic institutions across the globe
