Call for Applications - 15 PhD Positions - Deadline 15 September 2016


15 Marie Curie Doctoral Fellowships

DEADLINE: September 15th 2016 – 17.00 CET

GEM-STONES (Globalisation, Europe and Multilateralism - Sophistication of the Transnational Order, Networks and European Strategies) is an European Joint Doctorate programme involving 8 degree awarding partner universities, 6 non-academic internship destinations and a publishing house.

Its common research agenda is rooted in the shared observation that the proliferation of international institutions increases the complexity of the global system; managing the latter effi ciently and fairly constitutes both a necessity and a challenge for the European Union.

In response to this shared observation and with the support the European Commission’s Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action, GEM-STONES will hire 15 Early Stage Researchers (PhD fellows) who with the help of their co-supervisors and non-academic mentors will collectively investigate 4 dimensions of the EU’s:

  • Emerald - Institutional capacity to externalise its policies
  • Citrine - Networked capacity to ensure greater policy coherence
  • Rubies- Relative capacity compared to other regional organisations
  • Sapphire - Framing capacity to define appropriate behaviors
