Max Weber Fellows

The Max Weber Fellows are part of a new programme financed by the European Commission. They are post-doctoral researchers spending one or two years at the Institue. They are housed in the Villa La Fonte but a number of them are also associated with the Economics Department. They may attend and give seminars and are available for consultation by doctoral researchers working in their fields. How to apply
