      The Centre for Advanced Study Sofia (CAS Sofia) announces a Call for

      Fellowships in the fields of the humanities and the social sciences.


      CAS Sofia is an independent Institute with international and
      multidisciplinary profile. Located in Sofia, Bulgaria, it promotes
      high-level scholarship in the social sciences and the humanities. In
      addition to supporting focus-group research, CAS Sofia invites
      outstanding scholars to pursue their individual research projects during
      in-residence periods of up to five months. The invited Fellows
      participate in the intellectual life and the scholarly community of the
      Centre (Bulgarian and foreign fellows) while working on projects of
      their own choice. Fellows receive adequate material and intellectual
      support and can profit from the Centre's wide international networks,
      international seminar- and guest-lecturer programme. CAS Sofia assists
      Fellows in all practical matters concerning travel, residence and
      research in Sofia.


      For the academic year 2012/2013 CAS Sofia provides in-residence
      fellowships of two- to five- month duration to post-doctoral
      non-Bulgarian researchers. Junior as well as Senior scholars are invited
      to apply.

      The selected Fellows are entitled to:

      A monthly stipend of 700 euro (liable to 10% income tax) to cover
      living expenses related to the stay in Sofia.
      Accommodation in Sofia, comprising living quarters and working
      space. The Fellows will also have free access to the CAS library and
      electronic resources/databases.
      Travel allowance (400 euro)
      Research expenses (100 euro p.m.)


      Candidates must indicate the preferred fellowship duration and its
      starting date within the following periods:

      I. 1 March 2012 - 31 July 2012

      II. 1 October 2012 - 28 February 2013

      The selected Fellows will take part in the regular Fellow seminars and
      the other scientific events organized by the Centre (workshops,
      conferences, lectures, etc.) and are invited to present and discuss
      their project in lectures or seminars. The results of their work shall
      be summarized in a paper (in English), to be published in the electronic
      CAS Working Paper Series.


      Candidates must

      Be non-Bulgarian citizens;
      Have completed a PhD in the fields of the humanities and social
      International research experience (participation in projects and
      refereed conferences) and publications in peer-reviewed academic
      editions are strong advantages.


      As an international academic institution CAS conducts most of its work
      in English which is also the language of the presentations of research
      results. Therefore, a good command of English is highly desirable
