50-60 Max Weber Post-doctoral Fellowships

Applications are now open for the 2023/24 entry to the Max Weber 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. As a multidisciplinary programme, we offer between 50-60 fully funded 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. Applicants can apply to be affiliated with one of the EUIs four departments (Economics, History and Civilisation, Law and Political and Social Sciences), the Robert Schuman Centre or the School of Transnational Governance.

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. Over the last years more than 90% of Fellows found an academic position upon completing the Fellowship.

In addition to the scholarships funded by the Max Weber programme itself, there are additional grants available that are funded by governments/foundations in Japan, Finland, Greece, Poland, Spain and Slovenia. Please consult the Programme’s website for the conditions of these grants. Suitable applicants of any nationality may also apply for a second year at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva (IHEID) . Candidates who apply to be affiliated with the Department of History can indicate interest in an affiliation with the Alcide de Gasperi Research Centre on the History of European Integration at the EUI.
