Invitation of Senior Social Sciences and Humanities Researchers to France – Third Call for 2022

Mobility support is available from the FMSH for senior researchers to visit France for up to six weeks during 2022 to carry out research in social sciences and the humanities.

The Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme (FMSH) aims to foster excellence in humanities and social sciences research by promoting collaboration and by supporting scientific networks, working groups and experimental research teams in France.

Through its Associate Research Directors programme (DEA – Directeurs d’Études Associés), FMSH encourages senior scientific researchers to visit France for a period of between four and six weeks, to carry out research-related activities such as field studies, bibliographic research and archival work.

Eligible candidates are professors and senior researchers holding a PhD (or equivalent) working in institutions of higher education and research outside of France. Applicants must be no older than 65 at the time of their visit.

Funding consists of a monthly allowance of €3,400, which is awarded to support travel and living expenses. In addition, FMSH provides logistical support such as help with visa applications.

Calls for applications are usually launched three times each year.

Applications to the third call for visits taking place in 2022 must be submitted by 31 March 2022 (17:00 Paris time).

Research visits supported through this call must commence by 15 November 2022 and cannot take place during the academic summer vacation (15 July to 31 August).
