"The Belfer Center has announced a new initiative to help build a new generation of people who can bring professional history to bear on strategic studies and major issues of international affairs. We will select two Fellows next year in history and policy who will be called Ernest May Fellows. Niall Ferguson, Laurence Tisch Professor of History and Belfer Center Board member, will serve as their point of contact and mentor at the University.

The fellows selected will be housed at the Belfer Center and participate in the activities of the Center as part of the International Security Fellows Program.

Fellowship applications for the 2010–2011 academic year are due on February 15, 2010. Decisions are expected by March 15, 2010.

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 2010-11, the Center is particularly interested in receiving applications that deal with any of the following:

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.

2. A 3 to 5 page double-spaced statement that proposes a research
project, including its relevance to the research interests of the Center.

Crossing my fingers and waiting to hear this coming week (April 15) about AAUW and Josephine de Karman dissertation fellowships...anyone else?

ON Newton Fellowship: 1) you need to press 'manage' to view your eligibility status. 'approved' at the front page does not quite mean anything. 2)I notice, on this rumor website, that the applicants of last year'r round were announced in later May.

Post-Doc in EU Politics

Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS), University of Cambridge


Applications are invited for one post-doctoral fellowship (ER: Experienced Researcher) as part of a new Marie Curie Initial Training Network looking at the Dynamics of Institutional Cooperation in the EU (INCOOP). Under the leadership of Dr Julie Smith, the postholders will join an exciting project looking primarily at cooperation in the context of the European Council/Council of Ministers. Further details on the network can be found at http://www.in-coop.eu/welcome.


The level of appointment will be dependent on qualifications and experience. A PhD (for post-doctoral positions) in a relevant or an associated discipline is required.


Under the terms of the EU funding, which aims to promote mobility within the research community, no-one can apply for a position within their own country or a country where they have been resident, worked or been a student for more than 12 months out of the three years immediately prior to appointment. UK nationals and others who do not meet the mobility requirements for the Cambridge positions are therefore not eligible to apply for these positions. Those interested in research opportunities within the network who are not eligible for consideration for the Cambridge posts should visit the INCOOP website. Initial Training Networks are limited to researchers in the first 5 years of their career at the time of recruitment. Full details of the eligibility criteria for early stage and experienced researchers, the person specifications and the responsibilities of the posts are provided in the further particulars.


The further particulars and an application form (PD18) are downloadable from the Department of Politics and International Studies website http://www.polis.cam.ac.uk/dept/jobs.html Two sets of the application documentation should be sent IN HARD COPY to Dr Julie Smith, Department of Politics and International Studies, 17 Mill Lane, Cambridge CB2 1RX by 1st May 2010. The successful applicants will be expected to start in September 2010. Informal enquiries may be directed to Dr Julie Smith (email: jes42@cam.ac.uk). We regret that only applicants short-listed for interview will be contacted.


* Limit of tenure: 36 Months


Closing date: 1 May 2010. Planned Interview dates: Interviews will take place in June.

de Karman fellowship committee is meeting May 1st. Award recipients are supposed to be notified that day, if you are not notified May 1, you are to assume you did not receive an award. (via their phone message, called them 4/19)

So May 1 it is! Seems a little odd given that it's a Saturday.

Does anyone know if the Transatlantic Postdoc in International Relations (TAPIR) allows successful applicants to defer their appointment? Know anyone who had successfully requested/received one?

On Newton, the final and interm reports are only for successful application. you will know that you get the fellowship or not from the formal offer.

if your application still "appoved@ and not assessed , you still have to wait longer for the results

It's ridiculous how long the evaluation phase of the Newton fellowship is. February to May/June would have been okay, but February to September? C'mon....

Anonymous said...

re Newton: I would assume, based on similar fellowship competitions (such as ESRC) that they assess the applications on a point scale according to the criteria etc, and then, when all are assessed, they rank them and offer awards to the top 50. that's probably why some have received an 'assessed' status already, including myself, and others are still waiting.

Anonymous said...

My status also says assessed, and pending, pending, pending in the application summary...wow...they are gonna anounce the results in September!!! WOW......I guess this means that there is much more applicant than the previous years......hence much lower success rate....

Anonymous said...

Newton Fellowships: Last year applicants were notified at the end of May, but the application deadline was about a month earlier than it was this year. So maybe we will hear in late June/early July

Anonymous said...

I am surprised that Newton is going to inform applicants only in September- this is a little crazy, anyway.... although they did say that the results will come out only after 5 months or so...
