Call for new members of the FEPS Young Academics Network

09/02/2016

FEPS – Foundation for European Progressive Studies and the Dr.-Karl-Renner-Institut are delighted to present a call for the new members of the FEPS YAN – FEPS Young Academics Network.

The FEPS Young Academics Network was established in March 2009 with an aim to gather promising progressive PhD candidates and young PhD researchers ready to use their academic experience in a debate about the Next Europe.  Realised with the support of the Dr.-Karl-Renner-Institut, the project has gathered more than 60 members. Their exchanges and interdisciplinary research have resulted in a number of stimulating studies, providing a relevant contribution to the European progressive movement. 

This call is being launched with the new (5th) cycle. It is addressed to outstanding, young, European, progressive academics holding a status of either PhD candidates or post-doctoral researchers, who are eager to get involved in the debate about the future of Europe and are characterised by the high degree of social competence allowing them to function well in a diverse environment. If selected as a new member, the candidate will be expected to:

        Remain committed to fulfilment of the goals for which FEPS YAN was established

        Actively contribute to achievement of the objectives set up by FEPS YAN within the long and short term work plans

        Participate in the FEPS YAN Seminars, as also in their preparations and debriefings

        Remain engaged in the times between the seminars 

        Contribute to overall strengthening of FEPS, via work within the FEPS YAN and through its representation within other FEPS and third parties’ research and activities.

The application should include tree documents: (1) CV, focused on research achievements and objectives; (2) Letter of motivation of a candidate and (3) an abstract of a page explaining the research question the candidate would like to pursue within FEPS YAN in the upcoming cycle. The outcomes of the previous cycles and the final FEPS YAN papers can be consulted on the FEPS website. The language, in which documents should be completed in, is the same as the working language of FEPS YAN, which is English.

The applications should be sent by 20th March 2016 to the FEPS YAN Coordinators (Dr. Ania Skrzypek, FEPS Senior Research Fellow and Ms Judit Tanczos, FEPS Policy Advisor), who may also be addressed in case of further queries regarding this Call.  

Successful candidates will be invited to join the next FEPS YAN Seminar, scheduled to take place in Vienna, Austria from 14th April to16th April 2016.
