Call for applications: JustEd Mobility Fellowships 2018

The Nordic Centre of Excellence (NCoE) Justice through Education in the Nordic Countries (JustEd) announces mobility fellowships for postdoctoral and senior researchers as well as PhD students working within the research themes of the centre. The fellowships are primarily open for JustEd members, but a fellowship can also be granted for international visiting postdoctoral or senior researchers whose research is closely related to the centre’s research themes.

Fellowships cover travel and accommodation and include an allowance to cover other irregular costs incurred by the visit. The aim of the grants is to intensify collaboration and exchange of researchers between the partner institutions. Researchers with mobility fellowships will be incorporated into the activities of the receiving partner unit and the visiting researcher is expected to engage in joint research, writing, advising, training or teaching. We recommend that the visiting researcher gives an open lecture at the receiving partner institution. Before submitting an application, applicants must be in contact with a contact person from the receiving institution, in order to gain approval and prepare a programme for the visit.

The application period for exchange visits taking place in January-October 2018 is open until
Friday 10 November 2017.


  • The fellowship covers a visit in one of JustEd’s partner institutions. Mobility Fellowships will be granted primarily to JustEd members who are visiting JustEd partner institutions.
    • Non-members can apply for a fellowship to visit one of JustEd’s partner institutions provided that they have research collaboration with JustEd members in that institution.
    • Additionally, if the mobility budget allows, a fellowship can be granted to JustEd members to visit an institution that is not a JustEd partner provided that they have research collaboration in that institution.
  • Length: 2-4 weeks.
  • The fellowship covers reasonable travel and accommodation costs. In addition to the direct cost for air or train tickets and accommodation, an allowance of 250 euro/week will be provided to meet irregular costs incurred by the visit.
  • The fellowship has to be used before end of October 2018.
  • The results of the visit should be described in a short report within one month after the end of the visit.
