Junior Visiting Fellowships

The Junior Visiting Fellowships Programme offers to young researchers (no more than 5 years after PhD and not over 35 years old) from around the world the opportunity to spend a period of time conducting research with a faculty member of the Department of Human Sciences and Education –normally between four and six weeks, though longer visits may be arranged.

During the stay, Junior Visiting Fellows will pursue their research project in one of the fields of interest of a faculty member, and will actively engage with the Department’s initiatives.

The Junior Visiting Fellowships will cover costs for travel and lodging up to 3.000 euros. Junior Visiting Fellows will be provided with office space, and will have access to the facilities of the Department, including library, computing and printing facilities.
