New Fulbright award for post-doctoral scholars: a Postdoctoral-Junior Teaching and Research Award in European Union Studies. The selected candidate will spend nine months at the European University Institute in Florence, focusing on developing professional skills such as teaching, academic writing and publishing, and job market presentation within the field of EU studies. My organization, the Council for International Exchange of Scholars, administers the Fulbright Scholar Program on behalf of the United States Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. We would appreciate the opportunity to share this news with your networks.
The award is open to early career scholars (within five years of receiving their terminal degree), and it is open to academics only. Applications are sought in all appropriate disciplines, but applications in the disciplines of Area Studies, Economics, History (non-U.S.), Law, Political Science, or Sociology are preferred. A complete list of application requirements can be found here in the catalog of awards.
The selected candidate will have close contact with the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, which is devoted to interdisciplinary, comparative, and policy research on the major issues of the European integration process, and the Max Weber Programme (MWP), currently the largest international postdoctoral training program in the social sciences.

As outlined in our Eligibility Guidelines, all applicants must be U.S. citizens at the time of application. The current competition will close on January 15, 2015.
