Programme Start Date
Applications are closed, stay tuned for updates.
The application deadline for the 2021/2022 fellowship was 22 February 2021 (17:00 CET). It is no longer possible to apply.
Applications have to be submitted through the Online Application Form. There are no paper forms to complete or to mail – hard copy or e-mail applications will not be accepted.
There are two distinct phases in the application process:
1. Register your application
2. Submit your application by 22 February 2021 (17:00 CET)
Once you have registered your application you may continue to work on the application details and attachments until the deadline. Submit the application only when you have filled in all the information correctly and have successfully uploaded the final version of the attachments.
After submission, it will not be possible to update or modify your application.
Please use standard international fonts, do not use macros, special characters, password-protection, electronic signatures or logos. Documents should be submitted in English.
The referee whom you have nominated as the one submitting the letter by the deadline will be contacted and will be allowed to submit the reference only after you have completed and registered the first step of the online application form including the name and contact details of the referee. In order to receive the reference in time by the deadline, you should register the referee details as soon as possible. This is possible any time and you will not be asked to submit the final version of your application at that time.
When you register your referee’s contact details in the online application form, an email requesting a reference on your behalf is automatically sent to the referee you have nominated. Nevertheless, it is your responsibility to contact the referee directly to inform her/him of your request, to verify that s/he has received the email request and to ensure that s/he submits the reference by the deadline. Please note that the reference letter can be submitted by the registered referee (before the deadline) even after you have submitted your application. Registered referees may also submit the reference letter by email, contacting: [email protected]
Once the candidate has registered the details of his/her referee, the referee will receive an e-mail with access details for submitting the reference letter online.
The deadline for submitting references is 22 February 2021. Kindly note that the EUI encourages candidates to apply and register their referees as early as possible.
The expected level of English proficiency is level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
An English certificate is not requested as part of the application, but successful candidates may be invited for an interview in English and requested to provide a certificate/supporting document on registration. This can be one of the international certificates listed below, or another supporting document showing that the candidate’s level of English is sufficient for using it as a working language (for example, a certificate of attendance of English language schools, a degree in English as a foreign language, a proof of work in an English-speaking environment). Native English speakers are exempt of proof.
*including special TOEFL Home Edition Test, for candidates who are unable to take the test at a test centre due to public health concerns.
By registering/submitting application, you give your consent for processing the data as specified in the Privacy Statement for Application and Selection Procedures for EUI Post-Doctoral Programmes/Fellowships and in accordance with the EUI’s Data Protection Policy outlined in the EUI Data Protection Policy (Decision of the President No. 10 of 18 February 2019).
