GENDER EQUALITY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

The Gender Equality Research Fellowship is a new ERRC programme, introduced in 2010. This programme will provide the opportunity for interested individual activists working at a local level in Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Turkey and Ukraine to conduct research on gender equality issues that have been neglected up to now or on issues already researched, but looking at them through perspectives not yet explored.

Deadline for applications: 10 April 2010

Information about the fellowship:

The fellowship is expected to start in April/May and will last for approximately 6 months. Fellows are expected to come to Budapest, Hungary, for a period of 4 to 8 weeks for orientation and preparation of the research project (which will include aspects of media and communication, research methodology design, basic financial orientation and human rights training as relevant) and then travel back to the research location to conduct the research with the ongoing assistance of the ERRC. The Fellow will work closely with ERRC’s Women’s Rights and Equality Coordinator.

Research proposal:

Fellows will largely be selected on the basis of their research proposal. The proposal should target a neglected or poorly understood issue related to gender equality. While no limitations are imposed on the topic, proposals that address state response to violence against women (including domestic violence), women’s health issues and trafficking in human beings are encouraged.
  • Research projects should be action oriented: projects will be expected to have an advocacy component.
  • Proposals should be community based.


Profile of the applicants:

The ERRC seeks Fellows who have significant experience living and working in Romani communities and who have been engaged in work with Roma communities at a local level for extended periods of time. The researcher should have a minimum of one year experience in the location in which the research is to take place. The Fellow should have working knowledge of English (with some language support available in particular cases). The ERRC will provide support which includes a basic monthly stipend, some provision for field research expenses for the duration of the fellowship (in Budapest and in the research location), travel and housing while in
Budapest.

Application Procedure:

To apply for this fellowship, please send the following as attachments:
  • A two page research proposal;
  • A maximum one page letter of interest describing yourself including details of your prior work on the issue to be researched;
  • CV; and
  • The contact details of two referees.

Candidates should submit their documents via email to Csilla M Farkas at: csilla.farkas@errc.org. The message should be entitled: Research Fellowship.
