ACSS-FMSH | Short-Term Postdoctoral Mobility Fellowship Program in the Social Sciences and Humanities
The Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme (FMSH) and the Arab Council for the Social Sciences are pleased to announce the fifth call for applications for their joint program titled “Short-Term Postdoctoral Mobility Fellowship Program in the Social Sciences and Humanities.” This program aims to:
- Support postdoctoral fellows from Arab countries and enable them to conduct research or research-related activities in France.
- Strengthen research networking and collaborations between Europe and the Arab region.
Short-term fellowships (2-3 months) will be available to individual researchers who 1) are citizens and nationals of the Arab region, 2) have received their PhD degree within 0-6 years, and 3) and wish to conduct research in France (including field research, networking, library and archival work, as well as other types of data collection.)
Fellows will receive a monthly stipend of 1,600 € (paid at the beginning of each month of stay in France). The stipend is intended to cover accommodation, living and transportation costs, as well as research costs. The ACSS and FMSH will also cover the cost of one roundtrip ticket for each successful applicant from their country of residence to France and back.
FMSH will also provide support for obtaining a visa to France and guide potential fellows to plan the logistics of their stay. This includes help with finding accommodation, contact with French research centers, and letters to libraries and archives.
The fellowship period is divided into two cohorts: the first cohort of fellows can take up their fellowship between April 2022 and June 2022, and the second cohort can take up their fellowship between September 2022 and November 2022. Fellows could choose between staying a minimum of two months or a maximum of three months in France.
