ECMI invites expressions of interest for Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship
The European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) in Flensburg, Germany is interested in hosting a senior researcher from non-EU and non-associate countries through the EU Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship for senior level researchers. Pending successful EU application procedure, a Fellowship would be available to commence in 2013 and 2014. The Fellowships are offered for 12-24 months at the ECMI followed by a shorter period of repatriation to home institution.
The EU definition for senior level researchers is persons who have at least 4 years of research experience (full-time equivalent) after obtaining the degree which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the research will be carried out; or persons who are already in possession of a doctoral degree (PhD).
In addition to meeting the criteria of the EU call, the applicant interested in being affiliated with the ECMI must be interested in pursuing a project on minority-majority relations in multi-ethnic countries or a project on the European minority rights regime. Field of study must be social sciences or humanities. Approach is open but a comparative Europe/non-Europe is welcome.
