New Europe College – Institute for Advanced Study in Bucharest, Romania – announces the competition for Fellowships in the academic year 2018-19.

The program targets young Romanian and international researchers/academics working in the fields of humanities, social studies, law, and economics.


Applicants must hold a Ph.D. title. Preference is given to candidates under the age of 40, and to those who have not yet benefited from a NEC Fellowship.

Working languages: English, French, and German. A good command of English is desirable.

Duration of the Fellowship: for Romanian citizens a full academic year (10 months, October through July); for non-Romanian citizens a) a full academic year (10 months, October through July) or b) a one-term fellowship (October through February, or March through July).

Location: New Europe College – Institute for Advanced Study, Bucharest, Romania.

The Fellowship consists of: a monthly stipend of 750 Euro (tax free), accommodation, international transportation to and from the home country of the Fellows at the beginning and the end of the Fellowship, as well as for season holidays. The Fellows who stay for the whole academic year are offered a one-month research trip abroad to an institution of their choice (1,500 Euro for transportation, accommodation, and per diem). As an alternative, they can opt for field research, in Romania or outside it.

The Fellows are expected to work on their own projects, and take part in the scientific events organized by the New Europe College.
