EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR THE GENDER EQUALITY RESEARCH FELLOWS

  1. The European Roma Rights Centre invites
    applications for its 2014 Gender Equality Research Fellows. The Gender
    Equality Research Fellowship provides an opportunity for interested
    researchers and activists to conduct research on gender equality
    issues. While actual recruitment to all ERRC calls is strictly on
    merit, the organisation strives to increase the number of persons of
    Roma origin in its team and therefore specifically encourages
    candidates of Roma background to apply for the Fellowship.

    Deadline for applications: 15 September 2014

    Information about the fellowship

    The Fellowship is expected to start at the end of September 2014 and
    will last for at least four and at most six months. Fellows will begin
    by spending a period of time in ERRC office in Budapest, Hungary, for
    orientation and preparation of the research project. During this time,
    Fellows will work closely with ERRC staff members on designing
    research, methodology, and the advocacy component (including media and
    communications) and learning basic financial orientation and human
    rights education, as relevant. Fellows will then return to their
    country to implement their research plan with the ongoing assistance
    of the ERRC. Fellows will spend up to two weeks at the ERRC office in
    Budapest at the end of the fellowship to finalise their research
    report. The Fellows will work closely with ERRC staff members
    throughout all stages of their research.

    Profile of the applicants

    The Gender Equality Research Fellowship is a component of ERRC
    activities aimed at capacitating Romani, Sinti and Traveller
    activists. The ERRC seeks Fellows who have significant experience
    living and working in Romani communities and who have been engaged in
    work with Romani communities for extended periods. We are looking for
    Fellows with robust experience in conducting gender-specific,
    collaborative and action-oriented qualitative research. The Fellow
    should have a working knowledge of English. Knowledge of Romani
    language is preferred. ERRC is looking for fellows from: Albania,
    Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro,
    the Republic of Moldova, Romania, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine.

    Research proposal

    In all countries the proposal should target intersectionality of
    gender inequality and racial discrimination with focus on the issues
    in access to health care, housing, education, and identity documents;
    more specifically in Hungary the focus should be on sex and

    gender-stereotyping of Romani girls, while fellows in Italy and
    Romania should work together to research human rights violations faced
    by Romani women and girls who intermittently travel between Italy and
    Romania. All research projects should be action-oriented, i.e. they
    should be directed toward specific advocacy goals to benefit Romani
    communities and individuals. The ERRC offers Fellows a monthly
    stipend and financial support for expenses incurred during the
    research. To apply for this fellowship, candidates should send the
    following application materials:

    • A maximum one-page letter of interest describing the candidate and
    including details of prior work or engagement on the issue to be
    researched;
    • A maximum two-page research proposal including a description of the
    project and basic context, objective, research plan and possible
    outcomes;
    • CV; and
    • The contact details of two referees familiar with the applicant’s
    educational or work background.

    Candidates should submit their documents by 15 September 2014 via
    email to Dora Eke (dora.eke@errc.org). The message should be entitled:
    Gender Research Fellowship. Only shortlisted candidates will be
    contacted in the course of the selection process. Incomplete or late
    application packages will not be considered for the Position.
