The LUISS School of European Political Economy invites applications for Senior and Junior Fellowships tenable in the academic year 2015-16 (September 2016 – June 2017).
Senior Visiting Fellowship candidates are likely to be established scholars in the field of the European economics, with an emphasis on policy-making, from academic and research institutions, as well as from policy-making entities (such as the Commission, central banks, and national governments). Senior fellowships are tenable for periods of one to three months during September 2016 - June 2017 (precise dates to be coordinated with the School by successful applicants).
Senior Visiting Fellows are expected to spend a good part of their time in Rome at the School, participating in its life, particularly in its seminars, and making themselves available for private discussions with junior researchers and fellows. They are required to present at least one paper in the School’s seminar program during their time in residence. It may be possible for fellows to teach one half or a full undergraduate course at LUISS university.
Senior Fellows will be given an office at the School headquarters in Rome. They will receive a monthly allowance of 5.000 euros per month. An additional stipend, the amount to be determined on a case-by-case basis, will be allotted Fellows teaching an undergraduate class. The School will cover travel expenses to and from Rome (one round-trip ticket in economy class, which must be booked through the university) and assist with finding suitable accommodation in Rome, although Visiting Fellows will be directly responsible for their rent.
Junior Visiting Fellowship candidates are likely to be young scholars (post-doctoral students, non-tenured academics, or junior members of research, EU, and governmental institutions) working on topics related to European economic policy. Junior fellowships are tenable for periods of two to six months during September 2016 - June 2017. Junior Fellows are expected to conduct their research at the School, actively participate in the School’s activities, present at least one paper, and provide a report on their work at the end of their visit.
Junior Fellows will be given a desk at the School headquarters in Rome. They will receive a monthly allowance of 3.000 euros per month. The School will cover travel expenses to and from Rome (one round-trip ticket in economy class, which must be booked through the university) and assist with finding suitable accommodation in Rome, although Visiting Fellows will be directly responsible for their rent.
Applications for both Senior and Junior fellowships should include a CV, a brief statement about the reasons behind their interest in the School, and a research plan for their stay in Rome.
Requests for further information and applications should be sent to Ms. Mariagiulia Porcelli (firstname.lastname@example.org) by May 31st.
