IMSISS-CES Fellowship


IMSISS-CES Visiting Scholar Fellowship


The IMSISS-CES Visiting Scholar Fellowship provides mobility funding to CES Research Network members to undertake a visit of up to 2 weeks at one of the three IMSISS consortium institutions – The University of Glasgow (UK), Dublin City University (Ireland) or Charles University Prague (Czech Republic).
IMSISS is an international consortium of universities and non-academic partners funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme to deliver an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) in Security, Intelligence and Strategic Studies. The IMSISS consortium is coordinated by the University of Glasgow. CES is an associate partner of the consortium.
Four fellowships will be available in total, one per year between 2018 and 2021. Scholars applying must be individual CES members in good standing and affiliated to one of the established CES Research Networks. During the 2017/2018 Fellowship cycle, researchers will be located at Dublin City University. In the next Fellowship cycle, researchers will be able to choose which of the IMSISS institutions they wish to visit. Successful fellowship awardees must:
• demonstrate outstanding academic and/or professional experience in the Security Studies field.
• bring concrete added value to the IMSISS programme and the partner institution in terms of student-centred teaching/lecturing, research activities, Master thesis support, workshops, academic/professional networking etc.
• contribute, after their visiting scholar activities, to the promotion and dissemination of Erasmus Mundus in general, and the IMSISS programme in particular, in their university and country of origin.
• contribute a paper or article on their research—arising from their visiting scholar fellowship activities—to EuropeNow ( and provide a testimonial report for the IMSISS consortium website.
In addition, scholars may be asked to act as CES named mentor to IMSISS collaborative dissertation placement students hosted by CES.
Priority will be given to applicants who wish to work on a joint research funding application/project or joint publication in collaboration with academic(s) within the IMSISS partner institutions and specifically at the host university where the fellowship will be carried out.
Applicants should identify relevant staff and outline proposed collaboration in the application.
