10 Doctoral Fellowships in the a.r.t.e.s. EUmanities-Programme
Deadline: November 3, 2017
a.r.t.e.s. EUmanities is a pioneering programme for a European Graduate School for the Humanities, co-funded by the European Union and the University of Cologne as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (Horizon 2020: MSCA). Central to this programme are its interdisciplinary approach and obligatory mobility phase.
Designed to meet the needs of individual Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in the Humanities, beginning in April 2018 a.r.t.e.s. EUmanities provides places for up to 10 ESRs, training young scholars to excel in research and cope with the global challenges Europe is facing. Our mission is to empower ESRs in the Humanities to become aware of their pivotal role in shaping the future of Europe.
ESR positions have a duration of 36 months per person. The ESRs will be employed full-time by the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School (living allowance EUR 3,073 less tax deductions and employer’s contribution to social insurance plus a monthly paid mobility allowance and additional travel and, if applicable, family allowances). The employment conditions include social benefit payments such as health insurance, unemployment insurance, pension contributions and parental benefits. Please note that, in general, the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School is not able to cover tuition fees for the institution chosen for the obligatory mobility phase.
The ESRs of a.r.t.e.s. EUmanities are enrolled in the structured doctoral model of the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School, the “Integrated Track”, according to two international mobility options. ESRs may apply for:
• “a.r.t.e.s. EU”: the European fellowship at a.r.t.e.s. EUmanities
• “a.r.t.e.s. global”: the global fellowship at a.r.t.e.s. EUmanities
a.r.t.e.s. EUmanities is funded by the Universität zu Köln and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 713600.
