Fernand Braudel Fellows


The Fernand Braudel Senior Fellowship Programme provides a framework for established academics with an international reputation for short stays of up to ten months in one of the Institute's four departments. There are two annual deadlines for applications: 30 March and 30 September.  Fellows carry out their research in one of the Institute's four departments. The departments invite fellows to participate in the activities which they organize (seminars, workshops, colloquia). They also hope that fellows will make contact with researchers with the same academic interests as them, and they may be involved in the teaching and thesis supervision tasks of Institute’s professors. Fellows may be associated with one of the research projects underway at the Institute. How to Apply
