Postdoctoral Fellowships


Fernand Braudel Senior Fellowships

provide a framework for established academics with an international reputation to pursue their research at the EUI.

Fellowships last for up to ten  months in one of the EUI's four Departments which in turn invite fellows to participate in departmental activities (seminars, workshops, colloquia, etc.).

Fellows are encouraged to make contact with researchers sharing their academic interests, may be involved in the teaching and thesis supervision tasks of EUI professors, and associated with one of the research projects being carried out at the EUI.

The Department of Political and Social Sciences considers applications only for the 30 September deadline. The next deadline 30 September 2013 is for applications in the calendar year 2015.

Max Weber Fellowships

The Max Weber Programme offers 1- and 2-year fellowships. Two year fellowships involve additional academic activities in the EUI departments, such as limited graduate teaching. The annual deadline for applications for these Max Weber Fellowships is 25 October.

The Max Weber Programme is Europe’s largest postdoctoral programme in the social sciences and humanities. It is funded by the European Commission (DG Education and Culture) and hosted by the European University Institute in Florence where the research community of professors, researchers and fellows provides an excellent environment for the Programme.

Marie Curie Fellowships

The EUI (the Departments and the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies) acts as a host institution for Marie Curie Fellowships which are awarded by the European Commission.   

Those wishing to come to the EUI as a host institute should have taken part in the EUI's pre-selection procedure, the deadline of which has now passed (30 May). Candidates have been notified of the results..

The EUI decides whether to accept the applicant and to support the application on the basis of an internal academic evaluation and the availability of suitable supervision. Priority is given to candidates whose profiles fit closely with existing interests and orientations at the EUI. The RSCAS gives priority to candidates whose research proposals fit well with one of the Centre’s core research themes
