ECMI invites expression of interest for Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship

Deadline for letter of interest 10 April 2012

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. 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. The geographic area is limited to greater Europe (OSCE member states) in a broader perspective.

For further information, please refer to the call for applications at the EU website.
