Would you like to be part of the International Master in Early Childhood Education and Care’s (IMEC) team of teachers and researchers?
One of the objectives of Erasmus Mundus programmes is to encourage and enable highly qualified scholars from all over the world to obtain qualifications and/or experience in the European Union.
Third-country scholars (i.e. scholars from countries other than the EU member states, the EEA-EFTA states or the candidate countries for accession to the EU) can apply for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship to conduct research and teaching within the IMEC consortium for a limited period of time.
The first semester (fall 1) of the programme is in Oslo, the second semester (spring 1) in Dublin and the third semester (fall 2) in Malta.
The position as a visiting scholar is open to those who hold a PhD in related fields of Early Childhood Education and Care. Excellent work experience can in certain instances replace a PhD.
In order to be eligible for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, visiting scholars cannot have lived in, or conducted their main activity in an EU/EEA-EFTA member state for more than 12 months over the past five years.
Scholars holding an Erasmus Mundus scholarship must commit themselves to actively participate in the master course activities and bring concrete added value to the delivery of the master programme. All visiting scholars are thus expected to perform teaching/research/student tutoring activities. Please look at the right menu under the heading "What is IMEC?" for a closer presentation of the different modules offered in IMEC.
All visiting scholars must be able to teach in English.
The scholarship covers a stay of minimum two weeks and maximum three months. The scholarships is supposed to cover travel and living expenses, and amounts to €1200 per week. Scholars must have their own insurance.
The amount of the grant may vary according to the actual duration of the stay at the host institution.
The scholarships are awarded to the best scholars on a competitive basis. Each selected scholar should come from a different higher education institution.
The scholars can apply to the IMEC consortium on their own initiative or can be invited to the IMEC consortium to do so. Only third-country scholars who have outstanding academic and/or professional experience are eligible for a scholarship position within the Erasmus Mundus framework.
The application should:
- mention the academic semester (e.g.: fall 2012) the scholar applies for,
- produce an extensive CV, stating publication records, research activities and teaching experience,
- enclose a letter of reference from a recent employer,
- and include a letter of motivation focusing on what the candidate can contribute with to IMEC.
In order to apply, please send your application to the IMEC administration.
