50-60 Max Weber Post-doctoral Positions Available, EUI, Florence, Italy

Applications are now open for the 2018/19 entry to the Max Weber Multidisciplinary 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. We offer between 50-60 fully funded 1 (all departments), 2 (SPS and Economics) and (rarely, and only in Economics) 3 year 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, including all forms of legal, social, economic, historical  and political thought  – both past and present.


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 the Greek, and, we anticipate, Portuguese and Slovenian governments, and by foundations in Australia and Japan to which nationals of these countries (and in some cases long-term residents as well) may also apply. We also have a memorandum of understanding with the Academy of Finland for Finnish applicants. Eligible applicants from these countries are strongly encouraged to apply, and will automatically be considered for these opportunities. For details, see:
