Call for Applications for ERASMUS MUNDUS Visiting Scholars

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR ERASMUS MUNDUS VISITING SCHOLARS IN THE ERASMUS MUNDUS 1. MASTERS PROGRAM IN PUBLIC POLICY – MUNDUS MAPP

Mundus MAPP, a two-year-long international Masters course funded by the European Commission, is jointly offered by Central European University (Hungary), Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (Spain), the International Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam (the Netherlands), and the University of York (UK). The Mundus MAPP Consortium is inviting applications for the 2016-2017 academic year from outstanding scholars who are interested in contributing to the study program and strengthening academic partnerships with the Consortium institutions. Selected scholars will receive Erasmus Mundus scholar grants provided by the European Commission.

Eligible candidates must have a PhD and be affiliated with an institution of higher education. Selected academics are hosted for a period of up to four weeks in one of the Consortium's institutions. In addition to conducting research in one of the disciplines Mundus MAPP draws on, they are required to teach or develop elements of the Mundus MAPP program (e.g. independently offer or contribute to courses, supervise thesis projects of Mundus MAPP students, participate in Mundus MAPP study visits, etc). After ending their visiting scholar activities, visiting scholars are expected to contribute to the promotion and dissemination of the Erasmus+ Programme in general, and Mundus MAPP in particular, in their higher education institution and country of origin.

Academic visits may start as early as September 2016 and continue during the 2016-2017 academic year, but should take place during teaching terms.
