UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA The Wirth Institute for Austrian and Central  European Studies invites applications for a HUNGARIAN DOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

For advanced students in Hungary

The Hungarian Doctoral Research Fellowship is tenable in the 2014-2015  academic year (1 September 2014  –  31 August 2015) at the Wirth Institute for Austrian and Central European Studies of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. The Fellowship is valued at CAN $  26,400.00  and  will  be  paid  in  equal  monthly  installments  at  the  end  of  each  month beginning September 2014.

The  successful  candidate  will  hold  this  fellowship  at  the  Wirth  Institute  for  Austrian  and Central  European  Studies,  and  is expected  to  be  actively  engaged  in  Ph.D.  thesis  research.

Successful candidates are also expected to participate in the Institute’s cultural, scholarly and academic activities, and events, particularly the development of academic relationships with institutions  in  Hungary.  A  willingness  to  engage  with  the  local  Hungarian  community  and serve as a liaison between that community and the Faculty of Arts is also a requirement.

Young scholars from disciplines in the Humanities, Social Sciences or Fine Arts (especially from  the  field  of  Anthropology,  Art  and Design,  Classics,  Cultural  Studies,  Drama,  East Asian  Studies,  Economics,  English,  Film  Studies,  History,  Linguistics,  Modern Languages, Music,  Philosophy,  Political  Science,  Psychology,  Sociology  and  Women’s  Studies)  are invited to apply. Candidates should be Hungarian citizens enrolled in  a Ph.D. programme at a Hungarian university at all-but-dissertation level and have an excellent command of spoken and written English. The purpose of the fellowship is to offer a research stipend to complete writing the dissertation. A sound reading knowledge of either a Slavic language or German and a proven research record (ideally in the form of publications), would be an asset.

The University of Alberta welcomes diversity and encourages applications from all qualified women and men, including persons with disabilities.

Applicants should submit a short English-language description (maximum 500 words) of their research project, a full curriculum vitae, and the names of two references with contact details or actual reference letters. Application should be  submitted by e-mail to the Wirth Institute c/o Dr. Joseph F. Patrouch  patrouch@ualberta.ca  and the Ministry of  Human  Resources c/o Ludányi Andrea andrea.ludanyi@emmi.gov.hu

Application deadline: 9 May 2014

Finalists in the competition for this fellowship will be interviewed in Budapest by the Director of the Wirth Institute for Austrian and Central European Studies in mid-June 2014. Successful candidates will be  advised by e-mail beforehand of the specific date, time and place of the interview.

Decisions will be announced in July 2014.
