OSCE Research Fellowship

Deadline: 1 May 2017
Open to: graduate students between the ages of 21 and 26
Fellowship: stipend of EUR 564 + housing

Description

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Parliamentary Assembly International Secretariat regularly engages eight or nine graduate students of political science, law and international relations from universities in OSCE countries as Research Fellows. Fellowship positions are granted for six month periods.

Students join the International Secretariat in order to gain practical experience in the field of international affairs, and the Assembly, in turn, benefits from increased language capacity as well as a strong research capacity.

Eligibility

The Secretariat mainly recruits graduate students between the ages of 21 and 26 with strong research and writing abilities and a solid academic background. All applicants must be citizens of OSCE participating States. Specific interests in the politics of the OSCE region, and particularly the former Soviet Union, are desirable. Excellent written and spoken English is required as this is the working language, and one other official OSCE language (French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish) is desirable. Computer skills for word-processing and research are also necessary. All Fellowships demand a six month time commitment.

Benefits

Housing is provided free of charge and all Research Fellows receive a small stipend of EUR 564 per month, which covers minimum living expenses in Copenhagen or Vienna.

How to apply?

Applications must include: the completed application form; a short cover letter; a curriculum vitae; a transcript of grades; two letters of recommendation; and a recent photograph.

Please submit completed applications either by post or by email to:
