Looking for an economic history fellowship?

Please get in touch with me, as soon as possible and surely before the end of the month, in case you are interested in applying to join an ambitious economic history team at ICS in Lisbon – Portugal’s elite social sciences institute, where I have a secondary appointment. I am part of the “power, society and globalization” research group.

ICS-ULisboa is an international, interdisciplinary academic research centre gathering researchers from many different areas of the social sciences as well as from various countries. The Institute, which was evaluated in 2019 as an ‘Institution of Excellence’ by international panels, offers excellent working conditions, financial support for research and international networks. Its premises are located in Lisbon, a beautiful and historical city offering a rich array of cultural and social activities.

Along with the possibility to join the Institute’s vibrant research environment and benefit from its wide international network, successful candidates will be provided with equipped office space, e-mail and internet access, as well as free access to library facilities.

Expressions of interests for applications having ICS-ULisboa as a Host Institution (beneficiary) will be evaluated within the framework of the following Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions – Individual Fellowships (IF):

European Fellowships (EF), including Career Restart, Reintegration, Society and Enterprise, and Standard European Fellowships

Global Fellowships (GF), which require a research period in a Third Country, followed by a reintegration period at the Host Institution

See the call for details. We particularly encourage applications from young scholars (i.e. think of this as a sort of postdoc), but applications from more senior scholars are also accepted.

Please notice all the rules in the call, including:

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships are available for experienced researchers of any nationality, who must have, at the date of the call deadline, a doctoral degree or at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience.

Eligible candidates must comply with MSCA mobility rules:

For European Fellowships: the researcher cannot have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the beneficiary for more than 12 months in the three years immediately before the call deadline;

For Global Fellowships: the researcher cannot have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the Third Country where the outgoing phase takes place for more than 12 months in the three years immediately before the call deadline.

The deadline for submitting applications to ICS-ULisboa is July 3rd, 2020, 11:59 pm (Lisbon time).

The decision to host the candidate will be notified via e-mail by 24 July 2020. Selected candidates will receive full support from the Institute’s R&D unit and supervisors to develop their proposal throughout the submission process.

The final deadline for submissions into the Funding & tender opportunities portal is September 9th, 2020, 5 pm (Brussels time).

  1. I am interested in applying to the ICS-ULisboa (beneficiary) for a post-doctoral fellowship within the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions – Individual Fellowships program. Please send me the necessary information to formulate my application.

    1. Anyone interested to apply under my supervision please write me (Nuno Palma) an email with the required materials, and we can take it from there. It sounds like you are a professor, though, which suggests you are too senior for a postdoc-type position. The Marie Curie does allow for more senior applications too, though (please check their materials).
