Max Weber Post-doctoral Fellowships

European University Institute

50-60 Max Weber Post-doctoral Fellowships
Applications are now open for the 2018/19 entry to the Max Weber Post-doctoral Programme at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence, Italy. 

Amongst the largest, most prestigious, innovative and successful post doctoral programmes in the historical and social sciences, the Max Weber Programme is located in an exceptionally beautiful setting with truly outstanding research and training facilities. A multidisciplinary programme, we offer between 50-60 fully funded post doctoral fellowships to applicants from anywhere in the world in the fields of economics, history, law and social and political sciences. All areas and types of research within these fields are considered. 

To be eligible for the fellowship funding applicants must be within 5 years of the award of their PhD. Preference is given to those who have recently completed a doctorate, not had a postdoctoral position before and/or are on the job market. Last year 98% of Fellows found an academic position on completing the Fellowship. 

In addition to the scholarships funded by the Max Weber programme itself, there are additional grants available that are funded by governments/foundations in Australia, Japan, Finland, Greece and Slovenia, to which nationals of these countries (and in some cases residents in these countries) may also apply. Suitable applicants of any nationality may also apply for a second year at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva (IHEID)
