Australian European University Institute Fellowships Association Inc


Australian European University Institute Fellowships Association Inc (AEUIFAI).

The Fellowships are available to researchers currently undertaking research in history, law, economics, and social and political sciences who are able to identify a direct benefit for their research from a period of residence at the EUI. The Postgraduate applicants must be at an advanced stage of their research, and the Postdoctoral Fellowship is available to those who have graduated with a PhD qualification within the last five years. The Visiting Scholar Fellowship will be awarded to an established scholar who can demonstrate that a one-month sojourn at the EUI would be beneficial both to the applicant's research and to the EUI.

Applications are now invited for Australian European University Institute Fellowships which provide the opportunity to carry out research at the European University Institute in Florence - the high profile research institute established by the Member States of the founding European Communities in 1972. A six-month Postdoctoral Fellowship will be offered for the period January-June 2017. One three-month Postgraduate Fellowship will be offered for the period September-December 2016. In addition, one fellowship will be offered for a Visiting Scholar from an Australian university for one month during the period January-June 2017.

  • Postdoctoral applicants must include plans to publish in a peer reviewed journal as a result of the period of residence at the EUI.
