The Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP) invites pre-applications from researchers who wish to spend 12-24 months at ELIAMEP as part of the “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship” Programme (MSCA-IF-2017), funded by the European Commission. Researchers accepted for this scheme will devote their time to conducting research, preparing publications, engaging in knowledge transfer, and developing their professional networks.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree or at least four years’ full-time research experience by the time of the call deadline. Applicants can be of any nationality but they must not have spent more than 12 months in the last 3 years in Greece (mobility rule).

Fellowships take form of European Fellowships or Global Fellowships.

European Fellowships are open to researchers either coming to Europe from any country in the world or moving within Europe. The researcher must comply with the rules of mobility.

Global Fellowships are based on a secondment to a third country and a mandatory 12 month return period to a European host. The researcher must comply with the rules of mobility in the country where the Global Fellowship secondment takes place, not for the country of the return phase.

ELIAMEP welcomes project proposals from all areas of social sciences and the humanities. However, priority will be given to those projects that fit best with ELIAMEP’s existing research interests and orientations and gain the support of at least one ELIAMEP senior researcher. The project proposal will be submitted jointly by the researcher and ELIAMEP.

ELIAMEP has an extensive and prestigious record of hosting international doctoral and postdoctoral fellows. Over the last years, it was host organisation in three Intra-European Marie Curie fellows, all of whom have made significant advances in their careers. Currently, ELIAMEP hosts the REPLICIAS project (Architectural replicas in the scramble for the past: Politics of identity in Istanbul, Athens, Skopje), funded by the 2016 call of the “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship” Programme.

Researchers who wish to cooperate with ELIAMEP for the submission of a proposal should check that they fulfill the respective eligibility criteria and then send an expression of interest, consisting of a short CV and a two-page summary presentation of their research proposal, to .

Proposals will be pre-selected on the basis of internal evaluation and the availability of suitable supervision. Candidates will be informed of the results of the pre-selection well before the call deadline.

Expressions of interest may be submitted to ELIAMEP up to 30 June 2017.
