Research Assistant - Jean Monet European Union Center of Excellence
The Jean Monnet European Union Center of Excellence will award ONE semester of .50
Research Assistant fellowship for either fall semester 2017 or spring semester of 2018 to an
advanced graduate student.
The Center welcomes applications for a .50 Research Assistantship for doctoral students at the
dissertator level. Applicants’ research must focus on Europe and the European Union in the post-
1945 era. Applications must specify with particular clarity how the dissertation involves study of
the European Union and be accompanied by the list of items below, including a letter of
recommendation from one faculty member (preferably, though not exclusively, a faculty
participant on the grant).
Graduate students must have completed two full years of graduate study at the University of
Wisconsin-Madison before applying to the position. Those who have already received a Jean
Monnet European Union Center of Excellence .50 RAship (previous to 2017) are eligible to
reapply, but preference will be given to qualified applicants who have not yet received support.
The application consists of the following:
1) One letter of recommendation from a UW faculty member familiar with your work.
2) Graduate transcript (an unofficial copy will suffice).
3) A two-page double-spaced research abstract of your work, with a title.
4) A curriculum vitae.
The application deadline is Friday, June 30, 2017.
Expires On: 2017-06-30
