Our mission is to address critical social issues by developing leaders, strengthening organizations, and promoting innovation through an overseas fellowship of skilled nonprofit professionals. The Atlas Corps Fellowship typically lasts 12 to 18 months. Fellows serve full-time at Host Organizations to develop leadership skills and learn effective practices through the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab professional development series and networking opportunities with other Fellows. This prestigious fellowship includes health insurance, enrollment in Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab, flight and visa costs, and a living stipend to cover basic expenses (food, local transportation, and shared housing).

Eligibility for the Atlas Corps Fellowship.

  • Two or more years of relevant experience
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent
  • English proficiency (oral, writing, reading)
  • Age 35 or younger
  • Apply to serve in a country other than where you are from (U.S. citizens are not eligible for the U.S. Fellowship)
  • Commitment to return to your home country after the 12-18 month Fellowship
  • Commitment to living on a basic stipend that only covers food, shared housing, and local transportation

1. Online Application

Part 1: You will need to create a login and you can save your responses so you can return to the application at any time. In Part 1 of the application (known as the “short form”), you provide contact information and complete the initial eligibility test, and if you pass the eligibility test, you’ll complete additional background questions and one short essay. NOTE: In order to sponsor candidates to come to the United States for one year as a Fellow, we require detailed information about each applicant. Please answer each question honestly and thoroughly. If you are found to be dishonest in the application, you will NOT be accepted as a Fellow and you will be sent home if you have been accepted.

Part 2 (by invitation only): Atlas Corps will review Part 1 applications and invite eligible candidates to complete Part 2 of the application (known as the “long form”), which includes additional questions about your skills and interests and several short essay questions. You will also be required to submit contact information for at least two references who know you in a professional capacity and will write a letter of recommendation about your skills and experiences as well as your potential for success as an Atlas Corps Fellow. You will need to send your requests for letter of recommendation directly through the application system. Your recommenders will receive an email that asks for a recommendation. More detailed instructions can be found in the online application form.

2. Atlas Corps Review Process (by invitation only): Atlas Corps will review Part 2 applications and select top candidates to interview via Skype with the Atlas Corps Selection Board, including Atlas Corps staff and nonprofit sector, government, and business leaders from multiple countries.

3. Host Organization Review Process (by invitation only): Candidates who pass the Atlas Corps interview stage will be designated as Semi-Finalists, which means they are eligible to be reviewed by potential Host Organizations for placements based on their interests and skillset and the organization’s needs.

4. Host Organization Interview Process (by invitation only): Host Organizations invite Semi-Finalists that best match their positions to conduct Skype video interviews with them, moving on to the Finalist stage.

5. Selection and Visa Process: Host Organizations will make their final recommendations to Atlas Corps, and Atlas Corps will notify the selected candidates. After being selected, Fellows will go to the U.S. Embassy in their respective countries to apply for a J-1 visa. Atlas Corps will provide support in obtaining this visa. Semi-Finalists who are not selected by a Host Organization will be notified and may be given the option to keep their application on file for consideration for the next class of the Fellowship, moving back to the Step 3, the Host Organization Review Process.

Timeline.

Atlas Corps receives hundreds of applications each month. Each of the steps listed above may take approximately 1-3 months. Most applications are reviewed within two major vetting periods each year. The vetting process may take several months to complete. You may apply at any time. We recommend submitting your application as soon as possible to initiate the review process. Please do not wait for any deadlines. See below for our approximate calendar, which is subject to change.

Tips: We encourage you to spend some time on your application, including having it be reviewed by a peer. Please check your email frequently for updates. Otherwise, you may risk missing critical information or deadlines. If you are accepted to the Fellowship, there may be a quick turnaround time between your acceptance and the beginning of the Fellowship. Fellowship start dates are not flexible, and assuming your visa is approved, you must begin your Fellowship with the Class to which you are accepted.

To Consider.

When you apply for the Atlas Corps Fellowship, you’re not applying for a specific Host Organization or a specific start date. You are applying for the opportunity to be considered by Atlas Corps and potential Host Organizations for placements starting throughout the year. Semi-Finalist applications are kept on file and considered for multiple classes unless the candidate withdraws their application. In some cases, strong applicants may be selected for the Fellowship in as little as 3-4 months after they submitted Part 1 of their application. In other cases, strong applicants may be considered for multiple classes before matching with a Host Organization placement.

Selection Timeline: Final decisions about each class of Fellows are made approximately 4-8 weeks before the class begins.

We are seeking highly motivated candidates to join us on a project beginning in 2019 on the molecular mechanisms of sensory neurogenesis. We study in particular the nociceptors, the specialized peripheral neurons that detect painful stimuli.

We aim to understand the role and mechanism of action of the Prdm12 gene. Prdm12 encodes an evolutionarily conserved epigenetic regulator of gene expression that has been found mutated in patients that suffer from a rare disease, Congenital Insensitivity to Pain, a dangerous condition that renders individuals completely unable to feel pain since their birth (Chen et al., Nat. Genet., 2015). To understand the molecular mechanisms that cause the painlessness, we are using the frog embryo and have generated Prdm12 null and conditional knock-out mouse models. We expect that the results of our work using these experimental systems as well as the identification of Prdm12 direct targets and interacting partners will help in the development of new strategies for treating pain.

The positions are funded by the Walloon government within the frame of the “Win2wal” program. They are open from 2 to 4 years and starting dates are flexible. The research will be performed in the laboratory of Developmental Genetics (Dr. Eric Bellefroid, http://gendev.ulb.ac.be/bellefroidlab/) that is part of the University of Brussels (ULB) Neuroscience Institute (UNI), the ULB Structural Biology and Biophysic laboratory (Dr. Abel Garcia-Pino, https://www.cm2ulb.be/) and the laboratory of Neuroscience (Dr. Laurence Ris, https://sharepoint1.umons.ac.be/FR/universite/facultes/fmp/services/neurosci/Pages/Equipe.aspx) at the University of Mons.

Preference will be given to applicants with a background in one of the following: mouse genetics, electrophysiology, cell and molecular biology and genome wide approaches (ChIP-seq,…).

Interested candidates should send a letter of motivation describing past research experiences and full CV to:

Eric Bellefroid (ebellefr@ulb.ac.be), Laurence Ris (Laurence.RIS@umons.ac.be) or Abel Garcia Pino (agarciap@ulb.ac.be) together with the name and e-mail address of 2 references

As populist parties emerge across Europe, increasing numbers of politicians and intellectuals are urgently calling for citizenship education to strengthen the public's democratic mind-set. However, democracy and education share a more troubled history than these recent calls might suggest. The question of what citizenship education means and how it should be applied has changed significantly over time and has been at the centre of controversial debates throughout the twentieth century. Different political and professional groups espoused competing concepts of (liberal, socialist and even communist) 'democratic' citizenship and education. These factions also collided with groups aspiring to various forms of 'authoritarianism'. Moreover, all varieties of 'democratic' citizenship education face a fundamental practical dilemma: Modern democracies need at least a loose set of democratic values and attitudes, but they cannot simply decree what these principles are without violating the democratic premise of freedom. In educational institutions, changing notions of citizenship and democracy also clash with the various forms of power that these organizations exercise over (young) people.

This workshop will trace the efforts undertaken to create, maintain and reform democracy through citizenship education during Europe's tempestuous twentieth century. Our aim is to examine concepts and practices of 'democratic' citizenship education, and how these notions and procedures conflicted and/or hybridized with nationalist, authoritarian and religious pedagogies. The workshop will study these issues on a European scale, mapping trajectories of 'democratic' citizenship education in different social, cultural and national contexts from a comparative and transnational perspective (and beyond a Western European bias). Reflecting on education as one of the principal instruments of social and political reform, we aim to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of the contested histories of democracy in Europe's twentieth century.

We encourage contributions that might focus on:

  • concepts of 'democratic' citizenship education and their effects on educational institutions, curricula, youth organizations and wider reform agendas;
  • practices of 'democratic' citizenship education in (model) schools and youth institutions, and the associated dilemmas and contradictions;
  • the role of human sciences such as philosophy, psychology and sociology in shaping, legitimizing and questioning notions and practices of citizenship, democracy and education.

Papers could also address specific periods in European history by exploring one or more of the following questions:

  • How were controversies surrounding democratic citizenship in education connected to the disputes about future political order in interwar Europe? How did these conflicts reflect both democracy's potential and its increasing fragility after the Great War?
  • How did education contribute to changing definitions of democratic citizenship after 1945 against the background of fascism, a devastating world war, new psychological research and the dawning age of superpower conflict? (Here, we especially encourage contributions that go beyond the well-researched case of West German re-education.)
  • What role did education play in the controversies surrounding democracy and citizenship between the 1960s and 1980s? How did the appearance of new social movements, the advent of mass consumption, and the emerging 'neo-liberal' cultures of self-improvement (and associated ideas of social order) feed into these disputes across Europe?

The workshop will take place at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (in the Interdisciplinary Centre for European Enlightenment Studies, Halle) on 7-9 November 2019. Please send your proposal (500 words max.) and a short CV to phillip.wagner(at)paedagogik.uni-halle.de by 15 January 2019 at the latest. We aim to cover travel costs and accommodation for panellists, and are planning to publish at least a selection of papers.

To exist in a democracy means to be counted, and ideally to feel as if what one does truly counts. At this summer school, we will discuss how the demography of a polity is presumed to impact its form of government. Thus, the summer school will address a few central questions:

  • Are there distinctive concerns associated with being over- versus underpopulated?
  • How and why does migration – both outward and inward – create anxiety that can throw the basis of democratic pluralism into question?
  • What are the various forms of “homogeneity” that different political ideologies seek to achieve or correct for? To what extent does a “longing for homogeneity” underpin the current rise of neo-authoritarian populism?
  • When and how is “the fear of small numbers” instrumentalized?
  • How can political systems – and democracy in particular – expand or limit the participation of certain groups in policymaking?

We propose to discuss some classic texts and chart a course through various sub-themes ranging from colonialism to “population politics” to Foucauldian “governmentality and biopolitics” to environmentalism, and aim to deal with different genres and disciplinary approaches such as political and social theory, history, film, fiction, etc.

The summer school offers the opportunity to work on these themes with leading scholars in the field, who include Holly Case, Craig Calhoun, Dilip Gaonkar, Ivan Krastev, Jan-Werner Müller, and Shalini Randeria. Besides lectures, discussions, and reading sessions, it also offers the possibility to pursue an optional writing component under the close supervision of long-time magazine editor John Palattella.

 

Location

It is will be held at Burg Feistritz, a picturesque castle embedded in the rolling hills of Lower Austria. The beauty and serenity of the historic scenery and the abundance of comfortable guest rooms create a perfect environment for the exchange of ideas, and offers many beautiful and distinctive spaces to engage, discuss, and reflect.

Eligibility

We invite applications from human and social sciences PhD and PostDoc students as well as faculty members (up to 5 years after PhD). 8-10 of the 25 places will be reserved for participants from Asia, Africa or Latin America.

Application

Applicants should send a CV, a Motivation Letter and a Letter of Recommendation. These documents should be submitted online via the IWM applications platform.

The deadline for application submission is March 31, 2019.

Selection

Applicants will be informed about the selection results by April 28, 2019. All costs related to participation are covered by the organizers. For any questions please contact us at summerschool@iwm.at
