The Max Weber Programme offers 1- and 2-year fellowships. Two year
fellowships involve additional academic activities in the EUI
departments, such as limited graduate teaching. The annual deadline for
applications for these Max Weber Fellowships is 25 October but please
note that, after 25 October 2013 and up to 25 March 2014, applications
for self-funded fellowships are considered on a first-come first-served
basis for as long as there is capacity in the Max Weber Programme.
The Max Weber Programme is Europe’s largest postdoctoral programme in
the social sciences and humanities. It is funded by the European
Commission (DG Education and Culture) and hosted by the European
University Institute in Florence where the research community of
professors, researchers and fellows provides an excellent environment
for the Programme.
The Programme, open to all nationalities, is designed for junior
post-docs who have received a doctorate in economics, law, history,
social and political sciences, or a related field – including social and
political and legal theory/philosophy, and intellectual history/history
of social, political and legal thought, within the last 5 years and who
want to advance in their research and academic training, in an active
multidisciplinary environment before entering the international job
market, or in the early stages of their academic careers. Fellows are
selected on the basis of their research accomplishments and potential,
their academic career interests, and the availability of the EUI faculty
to provide mentorship.
