Max Weber Fellowships, European University Institute, Florence

Deadline: 18 October 2023

The Max Weber Programme (MWP) at the European University Institute (EUI) is a unique postdoctoral programme in the historical and social sciences in Europe. It is open to applicants who are within 5 years from the completion of their PhD, from anywhere in the world, regardless of nationality. The Programme is highly selective, with an annual acceptance rate of <5% for a total of 55-60 Fellowships in the fields of political and social sciences, economics, law, and history. Preference is given to applicants who have only just completed their doctorate and have not had a postdoctoral fellowship before. Selected Fellows will benefit from the stimulating combination of a global programme located in the heart of Europe offering a broad menu of multidisciplinary and disciplinary activities.

The Programme awards 1 and 2 year long fellowships according to departments. In extraordinary cases only can a fellowship be extended to a third year.

Fellows are given training and support in all aspects of an academic career – from publishing and presentingteachingapplying for research grants and jobs. A particular focus is placed on communicating effectively in English to different kinds of academic audiences.
