MACIMIDE Senior Visiting Fellowship Scheme

MACIMIDE Visiting Fellows


Senior Visiting Fellowship

The Maastricht Centre for Citizenship, Migration and Development (MACIMIDE) is pleased to invite applications for its Senior Fellowship scheme for the academic year 2014/15.

The Fellowship

Fellows will engage in collaborative work with members of MACIMIDE along one of the four research themes:

  • Migration and Development
  • Transnational Families
  • Cross-border Mobility
  • Citizenship and Immigrant Integration

MACIMIDE provides a vibrant research environment in which fellows can pursue their research, present their work and expand their network. Fellows have access to Maastricht University facilities, computer services, and library resources. They receive affiliation and a workspace at one of MACIMIDE’s participating faculties.

MACIMIDE is able to offer fellows a limited grant that depends on the available budget and that will be decided on an individual basis. The financial support from MACIMIDE might not cover all costs regarding travel and stay in Maastricht. Fellows are advised to secure funding from other sources. External funding opportunities:


Fellows must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent in the social sciences, law or humanities at the time of their application. Ideally, they should use their stay to work together with a MACIMIDE researcher on a joint research project and/or funding application.


Potential candidates are strongly encouraged to contact MACIMIDE researchers who work on related areas or projects before they submit applications. Information about the MACIMIDE Research Themes and associated researchers can be found on the MACIMIDE website at:
