One Year Postdoctoral Solidarity Fellowship for Researchers at Risk All Disciplines

s4r-logo-1 hr-logo-1

Application deadline: 31 March 2019

Start date: 1-15 September 2019

Job Description

The Université libre de Bruxelles has created a Solidarity Fund in order to provide support for researchers who no longer have the freedom to pursue their research in their home country, where they are threatened due to the content of their scientific work or to the opinions they have freely expressed.

The Solidarity Fund provides postdoctoral fellowships enabling threatened academics to continue their work at ULB in a climate of academic freedom.

The solidarity fellowship consists in a one-year (12 months) postdoctoral position, amounting to 42,000 euros gross (approximately 29,000 euros net), plus a discretionary relocation allowance of 2,500 euros net (payable to researchers resident in another country, after their move to Belgium).

Five fellowships will be awarded this year.  The recipients will carry out research in a ULB research centre, supervised by a member of the University’s academic staff. They may, if they so wish, take part in teaching activities or any other scientific activities organised on campus.

Qualifications

PhD

Requirements

To be eligible for the position, applicants must:

  • hold a PhD and occupy (or have occupied) a full time position in a university in their home country;
  • be currently at risk in their home country due to the content of their work or to the ideas they have openly expressed;
  • not have resided or carried out their main activity in Belgium (work, studies etc.) for more than 24 months during the 36 months immediately preceding the fellowship start date (mobility rule);
  • not have obtained their PhD more than 8 years before the fellowship start date;
  • hold a valid passport/travel document and be able to travel to Belgium;
  • have a good knowledge of written and spoken English and/or French (minimum B2).
