Aleksanteri Institute Visiting Fellows Programme
Call open 9 January - 10 February 2017

Applications are invited from highly qualified scholars conducting research in a field relevant to the Aleksanteri Institute's research agenda. Applicants at different stages of their academic career, from junior researchers to established scholars, are welcome to apply. Applicants must hold a PhD degree or equivalent (granted no later than 10 February 2017). In addition to academic excellence, a key factor in the selection process is the potential for a mutually beneficial research visit, both for the visitor and for the research community of the Aleksanteri Institute. Visiting Fellows are expected to work on themes related to the Aleksanteri Institute’s research agenda and are encouraged to participate actively in the academic life of the Aleksanteri Institute.

The call for Aleksanteri Visiting Fellowships for the academic year 2017–2018 is open
from 9 January until 10 February 2017.

Successful applicants will be granted monthly fellowships of 3000€ for research visits between one and three months at the Aleksanteri Institute. The visits should take place between 1 August 2017 and 15 July 2018. The last possible starting date for a visiting fellowship is 1 June 2018. The selection of the Visiting Fellows will be concluded by 7 April, when the names of the Visiting Fellows will be posted on the Institute’s website. All applicants will be notified of the result.
