Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Fellows in Central European Studies

The Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Fellowships in Central European Studies enable each year two outstanding scholars to conduct research on important issues related to Central Europe at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, D.C. The second Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Fellows will be appointed for a nine (9) month period from October 2011-June 2012.

The Fellows are closely integrated into the research, training, and outreach activities of the Center for Transatlantic Relations (CTR) at SAIS, and will participate in CTR events and meetings. Each Fellow is expected to complete a research paper during the period of residence according to the terms of the assignment entered into with the Foundation.

Each year the Center and the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation identify several themes of particular interest. For 2011-12, the Center is particularly interested in receiving applications that deal with any of the following:
* The evolving nature of political parties in Central Europe
* The roles and relationships of big and small member states in the European Union
* The role of foreign direct investment in Central Europe
* Serbia’s European future

Applicants for the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Fellowship must have a doctorate or be at the post-doctorate level, have demonstrated research capacity, be fluent in English, and be eligible for a J-1 visa. Preference will be given to qualified and competitive candidates from Austria, but the Fellowship is open to candidates of other nationalities as well.

The Fellow will enter into a research assignment with the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation and will receive a monthly stipend of $5,000; an office with computer; Internet access and voicemail; access to Johns Hopkins University libraries and other facilities. The Fellow is expected to take care of his/her travel, accommodation, health care coverage and living expenses.
