The Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme (Paris, France) offers postdoctoral fellowships to researchers in the social and human sciences for periods of nine months as part of its “Fernand Braudel-IFER” (International Fellowships for Experienced Researchers) programme. This programme is supported by the European Union (Action Marie Curie – COFUND – 7th PCRD).
This programme is also supported by the FMSH, the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research (Direction des relations européennes et internationales et de la coopération), the Fritz Thyssen Foundation (Köln, Germany), Princeton University (USA), The Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), the Ecole Centrale Paris, the Institut de recherche stratégique de l’Ecole militaire – ministère de la Défense (IRSEM), the Bruno Kessler foundation (Trento, Italy), the Labex Dynamite, Hastec, IEC, IPOPS, Med, OBVIL, OT-med, Resmed, Tepsis and TransferS. The programme is also carried out in collaboration with the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD).
The Fernand Braudel-IFER programme breaks down into two sections:
1. The Fernand Braudel-IFER incoming programme is designed for residencies in France (for researchers affiliated to a foreign research centre).
This programme targets applicants from all countries. From March 2013 onwards, candidates must apply to specific fellowships, offered by several Research institutions and “Laboratories of excellence” (Labex), partners of the programme.
2. The Fernand Braudel-IFER outgoing programme is designed for research stays in another European country (for researchers affiliated to a French research centre).
This programme targets researchers residing in France who would like to benefit from a research stay in another European country (EU Member State or associate).
These research stays are designed to enable researchers to:
• Carry out a research project in a host laboratory
• Integrate scientific networks in France and other European countries
• Build lasting partnerships between their home institution and the host institution
Applicable scientific disciplines:
All social and human sciences are eligible. An interdisciplinary approach to research topics is encouraged.
