Candidates for the fellowship:
- must have a second degree (master or equivalent) in any academic discipline
- must display an active competence in English
We particularly invite candidates who can demonstrate high academic ambition, but have also been socially engaged and are willing to employ their research and scientific work in societal transformation close to IPE’s mission. Candidates who have distinctive experience in connecting international and local perspectives in their work or who can demonstrate outstanding social engagement will be given preference.
The IPE junior research fellowship is a full-time, 6 months long paid fellowship with flexibility in implementation. It can start at your earliest convenience by the 1st of April 2018 or soon thereafter, and will be finished by the 31st of December 2018 at the latest
The selected candidates will be invited to spend these 6 months at IPE to pursue their research within the framework of IPE research projects. Junior Visiting Fellows will receive a stipend of EUR 800 net per month (in HRK equivalent) to cover accommodation, living expenses, travel, health insurance and any incidental costs related to their stay in Zagreb. The modality of the payment will be defined at individual basis in agreement with the selected fellow.
In addition, IPE provides fellows with office space and in-house research and administrative facilities. Fellows will initially undergo orientation and introduction to IPE staff and associates, and the Institute’s ongoing activities. Fellows will cooperate closely with the IPE staff member who leads the respective research activity, attend monthly meetings with the Research Director and are expected to contribute to other ongoing research activities and public events. Depending on specific activities, fellows will work either from the IPE office in Zagreb, or temporarily from other locations conditional on agreement with the Research Director and the Executive Director of IPE. Halfway through their Fellowship, fellows will present their research project to the IPE team and should expect an evaluation of their outputs and cooperation with IPE team by the Academic Council.
