Max Weber Fellowships Italy. Deadline: 25 October 2014

Max Weber Fellowships Italy

Scholarship / Financial aid: shared office space and research funds of up to 1000 euros
Date: 1 or 2 years
Deadline: 25 October 2014

Open to: applicants from anywhere in the world, regardless of nationality

Announcement follows
The Max Weber Programme offers 1- and 2-year fellowships. The annual deadline for applications is 25 October. Applications for self-funded fellowships are considered from 25 October 2014 to 25 March 2015 on a first-come first-served basis for as long as there is capacity in the Max Weber Programme.
The Max Weber Programme is funded by the European Commission (DG Education and Culture) and forms an integral part of the research community of the European University Institute in Florence. It is Europe’s largest postdoctoral programme in the social sciences and humanities. It is designed for junior post-docs who have received a doctorate in economics, law, history, social and political sciences, or a related field, within the last 5 years, and who wish to advance their research and academic training within a multidisciplinary environment before entering the international job market or continuing their career as a recently appointed academic.

The Programme is open to applicants from anywhere in the world, regardless of nationality, and is not restricted to citizens of the EU. The language of the programme is English and applicants must fulfil the English language requirements as outlined in the section on Eligibility.

Fellows are selected on the basis of their research proposal; their academic accomplishments and potential; and the availability of EUI faculty, from either one or more of the four departments and/or the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, to provide mentorship.

All applicants in the field of Economics are selected for a 2 year fellowship, which involves additional activities, such as limited teaching in the department, in the second year. Applicants in other disciplines may apply for a limited number of second year Fellowships during the course of their first year.

The Max Weber Programme is located in the Badia Fiesolana, the main building of the EUI. Fellows have access to the Institute’s excellent research facilities, including what is probably Europe’s best library in the historical and social sciences, and are provided with a shared office space and research funds of up to 1000 euros.

The Programme offers a dedicated and comprehensive series of Academic Practice workshops to improve communication skills (writing, presentation and teaching), to help Fellows with applying for research grants, and with the development of a publication strategy. In addition, it provides a range of teaching-training opportunities (within the EUI, Florence and with a number of presitigious universities abroad) and the possibility of acquiring the MWP Teaching Certificate . The Programme also hosts the Academic Careers Observatory and Fellows are given support for the whole of the job application process, from identifying potential employment opportunities to the job talk and interview. For the Academic practice activities Fellows are organised into disciplinary groups.

Fellows are also given time and encouragement to pursue, present and publish their research as outlined in their proposal, including attending and presenting at suitable conferences and workshops. For this purpose, Fellows are organised into thematic research groups . These groups change every year and are created as appropriate from among those fellows who have been selected according to the selection criteria. Here they can present their on-going research, including the compulsory working paper and draft research funding application that they must complete over the year, and participate in and help organise multidisciplinary research workshops and conferences. Many of the Max Weber Lecturers have been chosen with one of the thematic groups in mind, and as well as giving a lecture they will be available to discuss the research of Fellows on an informal basis and will take part in a workshop built around their work in the context of one of the thematic research groups. Many of these activities are organized by the Fellows themselves.

Both the Academic Practice and the Research group activities make the Max Weber Fellowship a unique and productive multicultural and multidisciplinary intellectual experience that inducts Fellows into full membership of the global academic community.
