Fund: monthly stipend and provision for field research expenses
The Gender Equality Research Fellowship is a new programme of European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC), introduced in 2010. This programme will provide the opportunity for interested individual activists working at a local level to conduct research on gender equality issues that have been neglected up to now or on issues already researched, but looking at them through perspectives not yet explored.
The fellowship is expected to start in April/May and will last for approximately 6 months. Fellows are expected to come to Budapest for a period of 4 to 8 weeks for orientation and preparation of the research project and then travel back to the research location to conduct the research with the ongoing assistance of the ERRC. The Fellow will work closely with ERRC’s Women’s Rights and Equality Coordinator.
The ERRC will provide support which includes a basic monthly stipend, some provision for field research expenses for the duration of the fellowship (in Budapest and in the research location), travel and housing while in Budapest.
The applicant should have:
– significant experience living and working in Romani communities
– a minimum of one year experience in the location in which the research is to take place
– working knowledge of English
To apply for this fellowship applicants need to send the following as attachments:
* A two page research proposal;
* A letter of interest describing yourself including details of your prior work on the issue to be researched;
* The contact details of two referees.
Candidates should submit their documents by 10 April 2010 to Csilla M Farkas at: csi[email protected]
(The message should be entitled: Research Fellowship)
