The research training fellowship program is meant as a visiting fellowship and addressed to early career researchers. Interested applicants must already be enrolled in a PhD program from an academic institution in the Global South and their enrolment must be valid throughout the fellowship. Ideally, the fellowship at SCRIPTS should take place during the main part of the doctoral program, neither at the very beginning nor at the end of it. The aim of the training fellowship is to improve the theoretical and methodological capacities (methods courses and counselling) of the fellows. The program offers mentorship, a tailored course program and intellectual engagements with peers.
The duration of the fellowship is maximum 12 months, paid in monthly rates of €1500 (travel and relocation expenses included).
To apply, you must submit the following documents:
- Motivation letter explaining the fit with SCRIPTS
- 1-page explaining why SCRIPTS would be the optimal place to receive training, including a suggestion of how you would fit with the cluster’s agenda and who could mentor your project
- 1-page statement about what kind of training you need and how you intend to get it within SCRIPTS
- 3-page outline of your PhD thesis
SCRIPTS is seeking to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching, and specifically encourages qualified female scholars to apply. Severely disabled applicants with equivalent qualifications will be given preferential consideration. People with an immigration background are specifically encouraged to apply.
