Visiting Scholar Program: Erasmus Mundus Masters Program in Public Policy
Deadline: March 31, 2013
The Erasmus Mundus Masters Program in Public Policy (Mundus MAPP) is a two-year-long international Masters course funded by the European Commission, jointly offered by Central European University (Hungary), Institut Barcelona d’Estudies Internacionals (Spain), the International Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam (the Netherlands), and the University of York (UK). The Mundus MAPP Consortium is hosting outstanding third-country scholars who are interested in contributing to the study program and strengthening academic partnerships with the Consortium. Eligible candidates must be employed by an institution of higher education in any country except the 27 Member States of the European Union.
Selected academics are hosted for a period of minimum of two weeks and maximum of three months in one of the Consortium's institutions. In addition to conducting research in one of the disciplines Mundus MAPP draws on, they are required to teach or develop elements of the Mundus MAPP program (e.g., independently offer or contribute to courses, supervise thesis projects of Mundus MAPP students, participate in Mundus MAPP study visits). After ending their visiting scholar activities, visiting scholars are expected to contribute to the promotion and dissemination of the Erasmus Mundus Programme in general, and Mundus MAPP in particular, in their higher education institution and country of origin.
Interested academics are invited to elaborate on their proposed contribution to Mundus MAPP in their application form. The exact form of contribution is determined by a contract between the visiting scholar and the Mundus MAPP Consortium.
The European Commission supports academics contributing to Mundus MAPP by special scholarships under the Erasmus Mundus Programme. The Consortium selects, and forwards a list of scholars to be supported each year to the European Commission for approval.
Academic visits may start as early as September 2013 and continue during the 2013-2014 academic year, but should take place during teaching terms.
Application deadline: March 31, 2013 (In case not all funding can be distributed at this early stage the Consortium will accept late applications until June 15, 2013.)
