Call for Visiting Scholars in the Erasmus Mundus Master's Program in Public Policy (Mundus MAPP)
The two-year Erasmus Mundus Masters Program in Public Policy-Mundus MAPP is jointly offered by four top-ranked universities: Central European University in Budapest (Hungary), Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (Spain), the Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam in The Hague (Netherlands), and the University of York (UK). They offer an integrated curriculum of two academic years, a joint Master of Arts degree in Public Policy which is accredited in four European countries: Hungary, The Netherlands, Spain and the UK. Mundus MAPP, established 10 years ago, has been selected for the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree grant under the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union in the summer of 2017 for the third time.
The Mundus MAPP consortium has open visiting scholar positions for 2019-2020 for 2-8 weeks visiting scholar periods spent at one of the consortium institutions. Applicants must have a PhD degree and have academic teaching and/or policy related practitioner experience. The consortium welcomes applications from candidates who can offer short (e.g. 1 day) workshops focusing on transferable skills relevant to policy studies masters students. Alternatively or in addition, visiting scholars are expected to contribute to running courses and/or giving public lectures and/or participate in research seminars and/or provide thesis supervision support at the host institutions. Scholars may also use the opportunity to make progress with their own research and broadening their scholarly network.
Visiting scholars are also asked to take part in the promotion of Mundus MAPP upon completion of their scholarship.
Application deadline: April 1, 2019
Decisions will be made by the end of May, 2019. In case the consortium is unable to fill in its visiting scholar positions a second deadline may be announced later.
