3-month fellowship for historians studying the IAEA

Fellowship for studying the IAEA

“The IAEA History Research Project in Vienna, a partner of the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project, is pleased to announce a 3-month research fellowship to a scholar studying the history of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The IAEA was established in 1957 and is the oldest and largest international organization in Austria. It is the key verification institution in the global nonproliferation regime.

The fellowship, made possible by a generous grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, will provide a unique opportunity to explore various archival resources in and around Vienna, including the IAEA Archives, and also to interact with personalities and experts associated with the IAEA in Vienna.


One research fellowship of three months is available. The fellowship is open to doctoral candidates working on the history of the IAEA. However, applications from candidates who have recently completed their PhD dissertation will also be considered. The duration of the fellowship will be three months, starting no later than August 2015

Fellowship Details

The value of the fellowship will be 6,000 €. The successful applicant will be considered an independent researcher and therefore will not be eligible for employment benefits, including health insurance. The successful applicant will be responsible for obtaining an appropriate Austrian visa.

Fellows are expected to share the documentary, archival, and other relevant resources they collect during the course of their fellowship with the IAEA History Research Project. Moreover, in return for the fellowship, the research fellow is asked to provide the IAEA History Research Project with a paper which presents the research findings and may be published as a journal article.

How to Apply

The deadline for applications is 20 February 2015. Interested candidates must submit a cover letter, a CV, one letter of recommendation, and a research proposal (maximum 1,000 words) outlining the work they propose to conduct, and the envisaged outcomes.

Please direct all application materials and inquiries to Dr. Elisabeth Röhrlich atelisabeth.roehrlich@univie.ac.at ”
