Fellowship in EU & Russian External Affairs from the Swedish Institute of International Affairs

Venue: Stockholm, Sweden
Period: 2014
Application deadline: February 3, 2014


The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (Utrikespolitiska institutet, or UI for short) is looking for researchers, preferably at the postdoc level, to join their Europe and Russia programmes, respectively. Time-limited positions are open for applications within the following two themes:



You must have a PhD in a discipline relevant for the thematic position you apply for. They are primarily looking for younger scholars at the postdoc level. Female applicants are especially welcome, given the gender imbalance in UI’s research department.

The most important merits are your scientific promise and achievements, as shown particularly through your PhD thesis, and your international peer-reviewed publications. Your expertise and publications should be clearly relevant for the thematic position you apply for. Working language is English, so advanced proficiency in spoken and written English is required and needs to be documented. You must also have good communication skills, demonstrated by your ability to collaborate with other researchers, both nationally and internationally. Knowledge of the Swedish language and of Swedish society is an advantage, but not a requirement. Interest in and experience of policy-oriented analysis, popular science communication, and multidisciplinary research environments are also of advantage.


Application Procedure

The closing date is Monday 3 February 2014. Decisions will be announced via e-mail in mid-April 2014. Your application must include:

Send your application package in nine (9) identical copies to:

Swedish Institute of International Affairs
Box 27035,
SE 102 51 Stockholm,
(Attention: Lisen Bergquist).

Mark your envelop “SFP Application 2014”.
