June 28, 2016

Supported by the Think Tank Fund for Wider Europe, a program of the Open Society Initiate for Europe (OSIFE), Group for Legal and Political Studies (GLPS) announces the Call for Applications under the Think Tank Young Professional Development Program for MA and PhD graduates who graduated with a PhD, LLM or MA degree in the social sciences and humanities from high-quality universities in the OECD countries in the past two years.

The Think Tank Young Professional Development Program intends to attract recent graduates of MA and PhD programs in the social sciences and humanities to selected think tanks in the Western Balkans and post-Soviet space, giving them an opportunity to gain first-hand policy research and advocacy experience at a renowned think tank in the region.

It enables participating think tanks to recruit young researchers originally from the region who recently graduated from universities in the OECD countries. The length of the program is six months, starting in November 2016. At the end of the program, both the Research Fellow and the host organization are expected to submit a final report regarding their activities during the fellowship.
