Description

The Institute for Advanced Study at CEU (CEU IAS) is pleased to invite applications for its core senior and junior fellowship programs for the academic year 2016/17. Fellowships are available in all research areas of the social sciences and humanities, broadly defined.  Fellowships run for the full 9-month period (Oct-June), for the 3-month “short fall semester”, the 5-months “long fall semester” (Oct-February) or the 6-month spring semester (Jan-June).

Each year, CEU IAS selects for this program some 15 fellows from an average of over 600 applicants. Fellows are chosen by a rigorous selection process, which includes stages of pre-selection and peer reviews as well as a final decision made by an independent, interdisciplinary and international Selection Committee. The Institute is committed to the pursuit of cutting edge interdisciplinary scholarship and will seek innovative research proposals. Young scholars with demonstrable promise of excellence will be considered; established senior scholars are expected to have solid records of first rate scholarship. A primary criterion for selection is the expectation that each fellow’s stay at the Institute will yield original and significant research results.

CEU IAS is a university-based institute for advanced study. It provides a stimulating environment in which fellows can devote themselves to research and share their work with peers through weekly seminars and other community programs. Fellows have access to all CEU facilities, including seminar and conference space, computer services, and library resources. They benefit from CEU’s vibrant international atmosphere, its strong ties in the region of Central and Eastern Europe and its location right in the center of Budapest. CEU IAS facilitates the fellows’ engagement with CEU and the Hungarian, regional and international scholarly community by encouraging collaborative projects, organizing joint public lectures and related activities.

Scholars at CEU IAS receive accommodation in the Raoul Wallenberg Guesthouse and a monthly stipend. Fellows are expected to reside in Budapest during their fellowship year, participate in the intellectual life of the Institute and pursue their research agenda.
