New Europe College – Institute for Advanced Study in Bucharest, Romania – announces the competition for Fellowships for the academic year 2015-16. The program targets young international researchers/academics working in the fields of humanities, social studies, and economics. The duration of fellowship may be:
- a full academic year (10 months, October through July) or
- a one-term fellowship (October through February, or March through July).
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. title or be doctoral students in an advanced stage of their research. Preference is given to candidates under the age of 40, and to those who have not yet benefited from a NEC Fellowship. Working languages: English, French, and German. A good command of English is desirable.
The Fellowship consists of:
- a monthly stipend of 700 Euro (tax free);
- international transportation to and from the home country of the Fellows at the beginning and the end of the Fellowship, as well as for season holidays.
The Fellows who stay for the whole academic year are offered a one-month research trip abroad to an institution of their choice (2,600 Euro for transportation, accommodation, and per diem). As an alternative, they can opt for field research, in Romania or outside it.
The Fellows are expected to work on their own projects, and take part in the scientific events organized by the New Europe College. At the end of their Fellowship, each Fellow is expected to hand in a research paper, reflecting the results of his/her work over the duration of the Fellowship. The papers will be included in a NEC publication.
Application deadline is 8 December 2014.
