Scholarship Exchange Program in U.S.A
The 2018 YSEALI Civic Engagement Fellows Program

Max Weber Post Doctoral Programme

The Max Weber Programme is the largest international postdoctoral programme in the Social Sciences and Humanities in Europe. It offers around 50-55 fully funded Fellowships to suitably qualified researchers from anywhere in the world who work in or across the relevant disciplines of the EUI (Economics, History, Law and Social and Political Sciences and their subfields). The working language of the Programme is English.

The aim of the MWP is to provide Fellows with the experience of membership of a vibrant academic community, to which they make a central contribution. It is unique in offering a structured Programme that not only supports the individual research of Fellows but also helps them develop the various skills they will need in their future academic careers. 

The Programme covers all aspects of an academic career, including support for academic writing in English, applying for research grants and the opportunity to teach in some of Europe’s leading universities.

Eligibility

  • Candidates must have received their Ph.D within the past 5 years or have official approval to defend their thesis by the time of the start of the programme (1 September). Therefore, to apply for 2015/2016 you should have received or submitted your Ph.D between 1/9/2010 and 1/9/2015 and the Ph.D defense should take place no later than 31/12/2015.
  • Extensions to the five-year rule are allowed for applicants whose academic career has been interrupted for maternity leave, illness or mandatory military service. Cite circumstances in the application in the field 'Additional Notes'. Successful candidates will be asked to provide supporting documents.
  • EUI graduates can only apply for a Max Weber Fellowships after having been away from the EUI and in a full-time occupation or another fellowship for at least a year after defending their Ph.D. 
  • Candidates of any nationality are eligible for the Max Weber Fellowships. 
  • The expected level of English proficiency is level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). Successful candidates will be asked to provide a relevant English certificate. Native English speakers and candidates who have written their doctorate in English are exempt. The following international certificates of English proficiency are recognised by the EUI: 
Selection Criteria

  • Academic accomplishments and potential. Academic excellence is assessed on the basis of the candidate’s contributions (publications, PhD thesis, etc. as outlined in the CV), their plans and commitment to an academic career as outlined in their ‘Research Proposal’ and ‘Academic career statement’, and other supporting evidence (i.e. two letters of reference). Preference is given to applicants in the early stages of their post-doctoral career, who can gain most from the programme.
  • Research Proposal - the proposal must be clear and well structured, with well-defined and realistic goals that can be achieved within the duration of the fellowship.
  • The capacity and availability of EUI faculty, be it in the departments or the RSCAS, to provide mentorship is taken into account; however, while having common research interests may be helpful, it is not a necessity for mentorship.
