PanEur1970s is a five-year project (2015-2020) – based at the European University Institute (EUI) – to investigate the European Socialist regimes’ expectations and predicaments vis-à-vis the opening of a space of pan-European cooperation in the long 1970s. Funded by the European Research Council (ERC), they are offering three four-year PhD studentships in East Germany, Poland and Bulgaria, with enrolment onto the History and Civilization Department’s doctoral programme at the European University Institute.

Successful applicants will be expected to start on the 1 September 2016 and should consider their research proposals within the framework of the project. Requirements for the project in particular are:

  • MA in History, preferably with a specialization in international and\or economic history;
  • Readiness to work in a team of researchers and to enrol in the regular EUI PhD programme;
  • Good knowledge of English and excellent command of the language of the country the candidate will study (German, Polish or Bulgarian);
  • Knowledge of other European languages will constitute an advantage.

The successful candidates will be awarded an annual grant equivalent to, or slightly higher than, the EUI grant (currently € 1280 per month), in addition to dependants’ allowances (if applicable), travel allowance and medical insurance.
