The EABC-ANUCES Visiting Fellowship supports research that is broadly relevant to EU-Australia trade and economic relations. Potential areas of research may include: trade in goods and services, the political economy of tariffs, the impact and options for dealing with non-tariff barriers, the possible use of mutual recognition as a mechanism for countering the restrictive impact of regulatory divergences between Australia and the EU and its member countries, and investment and public procurement issues. The research may contribute to current debates about the use of free trade agreements by both the EU and Australia and the prospects for such an agreement between them. Other, related areas of research will also be considered.

The Fellowship will suit university graduates with professional backgrounds or research interest in a variety of academic fields, such as economics, business studies, law, political science and international relations, or related academic areas. The Fellowship-holder will have an opportunity to demonstrate their research skills by preparing a policy-relevant research report. They will establish valuable contacts in Australia’s business world, and present their report to representatives of leading firms that engage in EU-Australia business relations.

The Fellowship requires a minimum period of three months residency at a time to be jointly agreed upon between the successful candidates and ANU and EABC. Applicants should note the preferred time in the application form.  Up to two Fellowships are available in 2014.

The EABC-ANUCES Fellow is expected to conduct research on the nominated topic which will result in at least one academic publication. The Fellow is also expected to produce a policy-relevant briefing paper based on this research for the EABC. The report should be ready at least 3 weeks before the end of the Fellowship term to enable the Fellow to present the research findings in a range of fora organised by the EABC and ANUCES. The Fellow is also expected to participate in the Centre’s program of activities including the seminar series, workshops, and conferences.

Eligibility

The EABC-ANUCES Fellowship is open to emerging and established scholars. A doctorate qualification or substantial progress into doctoral studies in the proposed field of research is essential. This Fellowship is for a minimum period of 3 months.

Benefits

The grant can be used towards economy airfares and accommodation for the Visiting Fellow. The maximum contribution for travel and accommodation is AUD$10,000. This financial assistance is not a salary replacement. The EABC-ANUCES Fellow is normally expected to be in residence at the ANU for the duration of the appointment. There will also be opportunities for visits to the Sydney headquarters of the EABC and associated off-site activities. This Fellowship offer does not constitute an offer of employment with either the EABC or the University. The Fellows are provided with office space and a networked computer providing access to the Internet and email. The Centre also provides some administrative support. In addition, Fellows are welcome to make use of the University’s libraries and other facilities. Fellows will also be provided with academic supervision and professional mentoring from personnel associated with the Centre.
