Fellowships

The GlobalTrust Project invites each year candidates interested in exploring themes related to this project to apply for:

  • One post-doctoral fellowship ($25,000 per one year)
  • Two doctoral fellowships ($20,000 per year, up to three years)
  • Two visiting fellowships ($1,500 per month, between 3-6 months).

Application deadline (for the academic year of 2015-2016): 1 February, 2015.

Fellows in the program will form a community of scholars and will be expected to participate actively in the weekly meetings and other academic activities of the project, for example by presenting their research and preparing working papers. The fellows will be able to participate during their stay in the academic activities at the TAU Faculty of Law, audit courses and workshops and attend faculty conferences and symposiums. They will have comfortable working conditions (in private or shared offices) and will enjoy full access to the law library services.

The fellowship period will commence on 1 October 2015. Visiting fellowships can extend for one semester (October 2015 — January 2016; March 2016 — June 2016) or for both semesters.
