About the Fellowship Programme

Together, the European Council on Foreign Relations and the Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo are recruiting for their

pan-European junior fellowship programme.

The goal of the junior fellowship programme is to develop and enhance the skillset of young professionals starting out their careers in international think-tanks and policy-oriented non-governmental organizations. The programme also contributes to create synergies between ECFR and some of the Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo’s close partners in Turin working on international affairs.

The fellowship programme has a duration of 9 consecutive months. It is developed through a 24-week period in the ECFR Rome office and a 12 week-stay in Turin at one of Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo’s partners. Fellows are expected to work full-time for the duration of the programme.

The pan European junior fellows will benefit from on-the-job training and mentoring by one of ECFR’s experts and, where possible and relevant, travel to other ECFR offices where they will meet a highly motivated and committed colleagues from across Europe and learn in an innovative think tank.

Based on their individual skillset, experience and areas of expertise, the fellows will support different teams in implementing ECFR’s organizational priorities. Throughout the 9 month-period, each fellow will be involved in various activities including advocacy, network-building, research, strategic communications and events management.

Past fellows have been assigned research tasks at institutions such as Centro Studi Post Conflict Operations, ITHACA – Information Technologies for Humanitarian Assistance, Cooperation and Action, and others. During their time in Turin, fellows will continue working under the supervision of an ECFR expert while, at the same time, contribute to the activities of the hosting institution.
