Jean Monnet Postdoctoral Fellowships
- Fully Funded
- NaN undefined NaN
The Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) offers one-year fellowships to post-docs in an early stage of their academic career. The main criteria of selection are the CV of the applicant, the overall scientific quality of the proposal, and the fit of the proposal with the Centre's research programme.
The research proposal should fit well with one of the Centre’s main research themes, programmes and projects. The three main research themes of the RSCAS are:
Integration, Governance and Democracy; Regulating Markets and Governing Money; and 21st Century World Politics and Europe.
Jean Monnet Fellows are based at the RSCAS and associated with one of the Centre’s projects and programmes. They are expected to actively participate in the academic life of the Centre and to contribute to the activities of the project or programme they are associated with. They can take part in the activities of the EUI postdoctoral programme and are encouraged to collaborate with PhD students, other postdocs and EUI academic staff.
The fellowships are open to candidates who have obtained their doctorate more than 5 years prior to the start of the fellowship on 1 September. Candidates of all nationalities are eligible for the Jean Monnet Fellowships.
The basic grant is € 2,500 per month.
Successful applicants who receive other grants or salaries must disclose this to the EUI. The amount of the Fellowship will be fixed at a lower rate (minimum €1,750 per month) depending on the amount of the additional income (upon production of relevant supporting documents).
If applicable, family allowances will be added to the basic grant (see below).
A household allowance of € 300 per month is paid to fellows with a partner when the partner lives with the fellow in Florence and on the condition that the partner's income does not exceed € 2,000 per month.
There is a dependants allowance of € 200 per month for each dependent child living with the fellow in Florence.
Fellows are entitled to these allowances if they can declare that they are not receiving any similar allowance from another source, and upon production of relevant documents (marriage certificate or a document that proves you are living together in Florence, birth certificates).
For dependent children in full-time education and over the age of 18, a school or university certificate is required. No allowance is paid for dependent children over the age of 26.
The fellowship is not taxed by the Institute. Fellows are, however, required to comply with any other tax provisions which may be applicable to them.
Fellows must have adequate medical insurance cover during their stay at the Institute. They can either provide proof of their own insurance scheme or subscribe to the EUI's private sickness and health insurance scheme at their own expense. See the Van Breda Insurance Scheme for conditions.
Fellows (but not their families) receive reimbursement for one return trip from their home town to Florence.
first-class rail (travel by car is also reimbursed on this basis) Economy class air fare
The maximum amount for travel reimbursement is €1,200 for return travel.
