BAGSS is a multidisciplinary Graduate School funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) as part of the German Excellence Initiative. We are seeking to stimulate and guide cutting-edge doctoral research on some of the most crucial challenges modern know­ledge-based societies are facing. Specialised research agendas have been grouped into four thematic pillars:

  • Pillar 1   Education, personal development and learning from early childhood to adulthood
  • Pillar 2   Education and social inequality across the entire life course
  • Pillar 3   Changes in human capital, labour markets and demographic structures and their
    impact on social inequality in modern societies
  • Pillar 4   Governance, institutional change and political behaviour

Qualification and requirements:

We are inviting applications from highly qualified graduates from the fields of Sociology, Psy­cho­logy, Educational Science, Political Science, Economics, Demography and Statistics. Qua­lified graduates of related subjects with a strong background in the empirical social sciences are also encouraged to apply. Candidates must hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in one of the aforementioned subjects or be very close to completion. Successful applicants will be re­quired to take up their residence in Bamberg, a city noted for its very high quality of life as well as great conditions for research and study.

Remuneration for the doctoral fellowships is based on Grade E 13 TV-L (50%) of the German Public Service Salary Scale. There is a teaching obligation of two hours per week for only one semester during the three years. Holders of the doctoral scholarships receive a monthly stipend of 1.365 Euro, plus family allowances and child-care expenses in accordance with the DFG guidelines where applicable.

The Graduate School is committed to diversity, equal opportunities and the compatibility of fa­mi­ly and career. It therefore explicitly encourages applications from women. As an in­ter­na­tio­nal research institution, the School particularly welcomes applications from abroad. Applicants with disabilities possessing essentially equivalent qualifications will receive preferential con­si­deration.

scholarship-Masters in Chemical Innovation and Regulation

 Master Course in Chemical Innovation and Regulation – EMMC-ChIR – is a MSc degree for professionals concerned with the safety and regulation of chemical substances.

Chemicals are everywhere, are an essential component of our daily lives and definitively contribute to the well-being and prosperity of our society.

However, some chemicals can severely damage our environment or health and are dangerous if not properly used. A large number of substances have been manufactured and placed on the market in Europe for many years, sometimes in very high amounts, and yet there is insufficient information on the hazards that they pose to human health and the environment.

These are some of the reasons that make a sound chemicals management and regulation so important. Policy frameworks are being implemented around the world and should be in place by year 2020. These frameworks are in accordance with the recommendations of the UN’s Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM). Among international regulations such as the US’s Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and Japan’s Chemical Substances Control Law (CSCL), the European REACH regulations, implemented in 2007, are the most ambitious. The REACH regulations (EC 1907/2006, REACH – Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances) are recognized internationally and have been adopted and adapted by the main trade partners of the EU such as China.

The REACH legislation allows for the gathering scientific information (registration and evaluation) and applying preventive risk management measures (authorization and restriction) of all chemicals manufactured or imported to EU. European manufacturers and importers of chemical substances are required to provide extensive information regarding all potential hazards caused by chemical substances contained in their products. This affects European and non-European companies supplying the European market and it requires an extensive amount of research from public and private research centers in order to assess the toxicity of chemical substances and to design new safer alternatives to their use.

The EMMC ChIR – Erasmus Mundus Master in Chemical Innovation and Regulation – provides professionals with all the tools and knowledge needed from the scientific, the regulatory and the economic point of view to manage the risks of chemicals responsibly and to meet responsibilities over chemical legislation worldwide. As an Erasmus Mundus project, ChIR aims to promote research and collaboration in the EHEA supporting the implementation of chemical safety regulation.

Norwegian Quota Scholarship Scheme developing countries

http://drupal.in-cdn.net/cdn/article/public/moving_to_norway_0.jpg

Brief description:

SPONSORED AD

The Norwegian government provides scholarships for students from developing countries in the South and countries of Central- and East-Europe and Central-Asia under the Quota Scheme. The goal of the Quota Scheme is to promote the internationalization of higher education and give developing country students relevant education that would also benefit their home countries when they return after graduation.

The Quota scheme normally includes courses at Master’s and Ph.D. level in addition to certain professional/Bachelor’s degrees.

Host Institution(s):

Most universities and university colleges in Norway participate in the Quota scheme. The institutions involved are allocated a certain number of students under the programme each year. View the participating institutions’ websites (PDF download).

Field(s) of study:

 

Any approved academic program offered by selected colleges, universities, and institutions in Norway.  Most of the Norwegian institutions offer courses and educational programmes in English.  Please refer to the websites of participating Norwegian institutions for more information on programmes they offer under the Quota Scheme.

Target group:

The Quota Scheme is for certain developing countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Western Balkan, East Europe and Central Asia.   See the complete list of eligible countries.

No. of Scholarships:

Currently, the scheme provides full scholarships for a total of 1,100 students, of which 800 are from developing countries and 300 from Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

Scholarship value/inclusions:

Each student receives the same amount of money as a Norwegian student would do in an equivalent educational programme. About 30 per cent of the amount is given as a grant and 70 per cent as a loan. However, the loan portion is waived when the student returns to his/her home country after completing the course of study. Normally, the financial support will not not exceed a time span of four years for one definite study plan, or a combination of two programmes.

Travelling expenses for entry into Norway can be reimbursed (fixed price). Students can apply for one annual home visit if the educational programme lasts more than one year, as well as financial support for travelling expenses for field work during the course of study. When the student returns home within 3 months after finishing the course, the cost of travelling home is covered by the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund.

 

Eligibility:

As a student, you must apply directly from your home country. You must have stayed at least one year in your home country directly prior to the planned course of study at the Norwegian university /university college. To be eligible to apply for the Quota Scheme, you must be able to find your home country on this list.

All candidates should typically have the following basic qualifications:  Secondary school certificates or a minimum two years of higher education from their home country. Some exceptions apply for certain professional educational courses at Bachelor’s level.

Most of the study programmes offered under the Quota Scheme are taught in English. Applicants who are not native English speakers therefore must document their proficiency in English. Requirements may differ between institutions and various study programmes. Please see the university /university college’s website for more details about language requirements.

Application instructions:

The Quota Scheme as a rule only enrolls students from institutions which have collaboration agreements with Norwegian universities or university colleges. Norwegian institutions usually do not admit free movers (individual applicants) to this scheme. Only in very special cases can free movers be considered.  To find out which institutions collaborate with Norwegian institutions, please refer to the websites of the Norwegian institutions.

The start date(s) of application vary from institution to institution while the deadline for applying for the Quota scheme is usually 1 December every year.  Some courses and educational programmes may have other deadlines than this. Please contact the International Office at the university/college to which you want to apply for detailed information.

It is important to visit the official website (link found below) for detailed information on how to apply for this scholarship.  Please see the websites of each institution for detailed information about available courses, admission requirements and application procedures.  Applications forms are available from the websites of the universities and university colleges. All inquiries and applications should be sent directly to the International Office at the Norwegian Institution to which the student applies.
