UNU-CRIS calls for proposals re Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions

The United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS), with which the IES has a close collaboration, cordially welcomes applications from outstanding (post)doctoral researchers looking to enhance their career development and prospects by working abroad. Located in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bruges, close to Brussels and many institutions of the European Union, candidates at UNU-CRIS will not only find themselves embedded within the global United Nations University research network, which directly supports the broader UN system, but will also be able to take advantage of a unique partnership that UNU-CRIS has with both Ghent University and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Successful candidates will be supervised by the Director of the Institute, Professor Madeleine Hosli. They will furthermore be provided with an office, along with a computer and free access to both the UNU-CRIS library facilities and those of its partner universities.  

UNU-CRIS welcomes applications focused on the role of the United Nations and other international institutions in the efforts to create and maintain peace and security. We also welcome applications focusing on the challenges to global or regional governance in line with one of the three research programs of the Institute:

  • The Role of Regions in Global Governance
  • The United Nations and Regional Public Goods 
  • The Changing Patterns of Regional and Global Governance 

More information on all three of these research areas can be found here.
