CFP: PhDs & postdocs
5 October 2010
As a pilot project during the first two years of the Institute’s operation, we will host a doctoral/postdoctoral forum.
We will support two groups of advanced research students per year – PhDs and postdoctoral researchers – to work together to explore common research interests related to Europe or the EU.
We invite proposals from groups of doctoral and/or post-doctoral students, whose lead applicants stem from at least two different departments, preferably different faculties at UCL. Activities may include seminars, workshops, discussion groups and invited guest speakers – or a combination thereof.
Funding of up to £500 per group and year will be available, as well as limited administrative assistance. The deadline for the submission of proposals for the first round is 22 November 2010.
Please download the APPLICATION FORM here.
Proposals should give an account of the topic of the project, its key objectives and its contribution to the study of Europe and the EU. It should outline the proposed activities and a coherent budget outline. In addition, applicants should provide information about previous activities (if any), plans for future activities and the potential, where applicable, of creating a longer-term network at the university.
