Making a Difference in Global Academia

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 covering all aspects of an academic career, including support for academic writing in English, applying for research grants,  the opportunity to teach in some of Europe’s leading universities and to develop a strategy for a successful approach to the academic labour market.
