We are thrilled to announce that the University of Rome Tor Vergata and the University of Siena are currently organizing the 7TH EDITION of the JEAN MONNET INTERNATIONAL EU SUMMER SEMINARS, to be held in Siena and Rome from the 28 June to the 16 July 2010. The summer seminars will be made up by three different modules each to be taken individually.

1) EU INSTITUTIONS AND DECISION MAKING AFTER THE LISBON TREATY
The 1st module will focus on the changes introduced by the Lisbon Treaty in the EU institutions and decision making procedures. It will also perform a first assessment of the new EU High Representative and the EU President. The module will take place in Siena from the 28th June to the 2nd of July, 2010 under the direction of Prof. Luca Verzichelli, Dean of the Faculty of Political Science of University of Siena. It
will be an exciting hands-on course analyzing the changes introduced by the Lisbon Treaty both from a theoretical and practical point of view.

Some 50 world class speakers - scholars and decision makers - are foreseen at the sessions. Among them: Giuliano Amato, Former Italian Prime Minister and former Vice President of the European Convention; Franco Frattini, Italian Foreign Minister and former EU Commission Vice President, Andrew Moravcsik, Professor, Princeton University; Martin Holland, Jean Monnet Chair University of Canterbury New Zeland; Simon Hix, Professor, London School of Economics; David Andrews, Professor, Scripps College, Cleremont CA; Gary Marks, Professor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Liesbet Hooghe, Professor, North Carolina University at Chapel Hill; Amy Verdun, Jean Monnet Chair University of Victoria Canada; and many others, including diplomats, academicians, journalists, EU officials...

WHO SHALL APPLY?
The Summer Seminars address primarily to PhD students and young professionals, but they can be particularly useful also for other graduate students, as well as for people working in NGOs, national administrations, interest groups, medias etc. Exceptionally skilled senior undergraduate students can be accepted on an individual base. The Jean Monnet Seminars are highly selective and intensive, with 30 teaching hours each week. Admission is subordinated to the proof of previous knowledge about the EU. In the past editions, approximately 35% of the applicants have been accepted. Prospective students can choose to enroll one, two or all three modules.CREDITS: Each module will award 4 ECTS/2 US credits.

TUITION FEES:
The tuition fee is of 600 euro per week. The participation to all three modules is highly encouraged, thus reduced cumulative fees are foreseen: 1000€ for two weeks and 1250 euro for all three weeks. Thanks to the generous support of the European Commission - Jean Monnet Action, 3 full scholarships and 3 partial scholarships are available and will be awarded on the basis of merit and need.

HOUSING:
Housing fees and lodging fees are not included in the tuition fee, though organizers will be glad to help with low cost housing. On some days free refreshments will be served, too. Please inquiry for further details.

Open Positions for Phd and Master Students at START, Austria

The START Group

The START group has emerged from Peter Paule's research group on algorithmic combinatorics. It was established in 2009 when the START prize of the Austrian federal minister of science and research was awarded to Manuel Kauers. The prize is equipped with funding for up to four group members for up to six years. The official start of START is scheduled for April 1, 2010. (No April's fool.)

Aims

In the new START group, we will be doing research in computer algebra related to special functions, differential and difference equations, symbolic summation and integration, Gröbner bases, and inequalities. On these and related topics, there are three general tasks that we want to address:

Constructing efficient algorithms. We want to find asymptotically fast algorithms for solving questions about special functions. Research of the past decades (at RISC and elsewhere) has led to a variety of algorithms that are able to perform spectacular simplifications of complicated symbolic sums and integrals. But if expressions exceed a certain size, the computational cost of these algorithms becomes prohibitive. Our goal is the construction of algorithms that are well suited for dealing with big input.

Developing fast software. We want to implement these algorithms in free and open software packages. Turning theoretical efficiency into practical efficiency is a difficult task, but it is well worth the effort, because it is often only the experience gained from observing the behaviour of actual programs which can lead to the discovery of new and substantial theoretical improvements. Our goal is therefore the development of software that is capable of handling big input.

Solving hard problems. We want to apply this software to actual open problems that are of independent interest. Software for special functions has already solved many challenges in the past, and it will be possible to solve many more of them with high performance software. Our goal is to knock out problems concerning special functions that arise in number theory, in combinatorics, in engineering, in physics, or elsewhere, but which are too hard for presently available tools because they lead to big input.

Open Positions for Ph.D. Students

We are looking for candiates who are interested in joining us in this effort and in doing their Ph.D. in the START group. Embedded into the ordinary RISC Ph.D. curriculum, START students will receive general education in symbolic computation and pursue an individual research project at the forefront of computer algebra, which is likely to have high impact in several different areas of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering. We offer the rare combination of
the pioneering atmosphere of a freshly founded team of young researchers working on the hot topics of the research area, and
the traditional environment of a world-famous institute with scientific connections and partners in all parts of the world.

We encourace highly motivated candidates with interest in both mathematics and computer science, a Master's degree in one of these fields, and, preferably, some knowledge of computer algebra, to get into contact with Manuel Kauers no later than January 31, 2010.

Bachelor Theses, Master Theses, and Internships

In the frame of the START project, there will be a continous supply of possible topics for bachelor and master theses, or for (scientific) internships. Also some (limited) financial support is available for students contributing to the START project on undergraduate level.

Interested candidates are welcome to get into contact with Manuel Kauers.

Contact

For further information, write to Manuel Kauers.

Europe : The Erasmus Mundus Masters Program in Public Policy

The Erasmus Mundus Masters Program in Public Policy (Mundus MAPP) is a 2-year-long international Masters course that embeds the nascent field of transnational public policy into a European context. It is funded by the European Commission, and operated by a consortium of four leading European institutions: the Central European University in Budapest (Hungary) as coordinating institution, the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) in Spain; the Institute of Social Studies (ISS) of Erasmus University Rotterdam, located in The Hague (Netherlands); and the University of York in the UK.

The European Commission's Erasmus Mundus program provides scholarships to outstanding students from within and outside the European Union to attend Mundus MAPP and to visiting scholars to participate in teaching and research. The Consortium universities also support these students by offering partial tuition fee waivers to Erasmus Mundus scholarship recipients.

Mundus MAPP provides a detailed and systematic understanding of how political institutions, processes and public policies operate and interact from the global political economy through to national and local levels with a direct focus on European engagements at these levels of governance. The multidisciplinary curriculum is conceptually grounded in public policy, international relations, development studies, public administration and public management. The program also provides practical work experience and transferable skills gained through an internship programme. Mundus MAPP prepares graduates for international professional careers as policy-makers, policy-analysts and advisors in either politics, the civil service, international organisations or the corporate and non-governmental sectors.

The Mundus MAPP study program lasts two years. The first or foundation year is spent either at the Institute of Social Studies in the Hague, the Netherlands, or at the University of York in the UK. Having completed their courses and a thesis students participate in a summer school, and move for a second academic year either at the Barcelona Institute of International Studies in Spain or to the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. Students undertake an internship normally after the second academic year.

Mundus MAPP graduates receive two of the following MA degrees as well as a diploma supplement at the end of their studies:

- MA in Development Studies from the Institute of Social Studies; OR
- MA in Public Administration and Public Policy from the University of York.

In combination with:

- MA in Public Policy from the Central European University; OR
- MA in International Relations from the Barcelona Institute of International Studies

KULTRANS aims to strenghten research on cultural transformations in an age of globalization. A key focus of the programme will be concepts and representations of ”the world”. The research will be transdisciplinary, transnational and transhistorical. In autumn 2009 we appointed six doctoral fellows who will form a core group in KULTRANS. We now seek to expand this group with three new positions. Candidates for these positions must offer a project which is clearly connected to the KULTRANS programme (see www.cultrans.uio.no/english/) as well as to one or more of its research areas:

In this second round of applications we will look for projects that

a) target the period before 1900 and discuss the historical dimension and/or

b) have an explicit linguistic, textual or discourse-oriented perspective and/or

For the fellowship associated with the Faculty of Education b) and c) are particularly relevant.

Applicants must have a Master degree, or equivalent. The positions are available for a period of three years. The positions must be taken up by October 1 2010.

Candidates who are accepted must participate in Faculty’s researcher education programme (cf. regulations and supplementary provisions for the Faculty’s researcher education) and must also engage in the designated research activities. The successful candidates are expected to affiliate with the research milieu associated with KULTRANS.

In assessing the applications, special emphasis will be placed on the quality of the project description and on the assumed academic and personal ability on the part of the candidates to complete the dissertation within the given time frame. The short-listed candidates may be called for an interview at the University of Oslo.

Guidelines for appointments to research fellowships at the Faculty of Humanities may be obtained at http://www.hf.uio.no/english/research/doctor/index.html
