Call for Applications

The deadline for application has passed. You can no longer apply for the 2016 fellowships.

Call Procedure

In the years 2014 and 2016 a call for applications will be issued within the UNESCO-IHE EWPFP COFUND fellowship programme. Each call for applications will offer eight two-year postdoctoral fellowships. Indicative targets are that 40% of the proposals funded should come from female researchers and 50% from applicants from, or resident in, developing countries or countries in transition.

The evaluation will take into account periods of child and family care or sickness. The EWPFP COFUND Evaluation Committee will recommend, on the basis of external review and video interview, suitable candidates to a selection committee chaired by the programme coordinator, and the Extended Rectorate of UNESCO-IHE comprising the Rector, Vice Rector, Business Director and Heads of the Academic Departments.

This committee will take a final decision based on the competitive ranking of candidates from their applications and interviews
