Deadline: December 16, 2019

Applications are open for the FMSH/IFEAC Atlas Postdoctoral Fellowship 2020. The Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme (FMSH) and the Institut Français d’Etudes sur l’Asie Centrale (IFEAC), with the support of the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, offer short-term fellowships of three months in France for postdoc researchers from Central Asia who have presented their thesis from 2014.

This research stay is designed to enable researchers to conduct research studies in France: field enquiries, library and archives work. At the end of their stay, laureates will have to provide the FMSH and the IFEAC with a report presenting the work done during their stay and the benefits for their research project. This call is part of the Atlas short-term postdoctoral mobility programme offered by the FMSH and its partners.


  • Laureates will receive a total stipend of €4,500 for the three months (3 instalments of €1,500 paid at the beginning of each month of stay). This financial contribution is intended to cover expenditure such as transport and accommodation costs.
  • Besides, the FMSH and the IFEAC provide support for visa and logistical support to organise the stay (possibility to have a workspace, letter for the libraries…).


  • Open to researchers originating from Kazakhstan, Kirghizstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan (nationality is a requirement) and affiliated with an institution of higher education and research or a public or private research institute based in one of these countries.

  • Applicants must be involved in research in social and human sciences.

Applicants will have to provide a letter from the hosting institution addressed to the FMSH and the IFEAC expressing the institution’s willingness to host the applicant during the time of fellowship and explaining the work conditions offered.

  • The quality of the scientific dossier and the methodology developed
  • The relevance of a research stay in France regarding the scientific project and the candidate curricula
