The newly formed Democracy Institute (DI) at Central European University (CEU) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position within its workgroup, focusing on the challenges of modern democracies.

Apart from pursuing her/his own research, the fellow will assist with constructing and consolidating an innovative interdisciplinary international research network. The position will thus combine research and organizational tasks. We seek applicants with a record (or strong promise) of relevant and internationally recognized publications in the research area, familiarity with current political affairs, and a keen interest in networking and institution building. Parallel with the contribution to institution building, the candidate is expected to conduct high-level academic research and publish in prestigious academic fora on democracy-related topics. The position will be based in Budapest, Hungary but he/she might occasionally be requested to teach courses at CEU Private University in Vienna, Austria.

Responsibilities and opportunities:

  • Contribute to the research activities of the workgroup with their own scholarly undertakings.
  • Take advantage of the multidisciplinary composition of the Democracy Institute’s research profile and academic community, and to seek intellectual liaison with other workgroups.
  • Organize seminars and public events of the workgroup and assisting in engaging the international research network of the core team.
  • Help with institution building efforts, the development of research project plans and funding proposals, as well as organizing brain storming sessions and planning meetings.
  • Depending on interest and capacities, the fellow can take part in educational activities such as mentoring readings/discussion groups of doctoral students, offering compact topical seminars to interested students, or engaging in other non-degree activities at CEU (summer courses, academic preparation courses, etc.).

Qualifications:

Candidates must have a PhD in hand, an outstanding research agenda, and a record of relevant publications in the field. Experience in research planning and management is an advantage. Applicants must have excellent written and oral proficiency in English.

Compensation

We offer a competitive compensation package commensurate with experience as well as a dynamic and international academic environment. The employment contract is for two years, with a possibility of renewal.

How to apply:

Applicants need to submit:

  • CV (max 6 pages)
  • Statement on envisioned individual research and on institutional activities, in view of the research agenda of the DI’s Re-/De-Democratization Workgroup (https://democracyinstitute.ceu.edu/research/de-re-democratization)
  • Two recent English-language papers, chapters, or manuscripts that best represent their research.
  • Names and contact details of three scholars who could supply recommendation letters in case the candidate is shortlisted for the job. The referees will be contacted by CEU.
