About the employer

The European University Institute (EUI) is a unique international centre for doctorate and post-doctorate studies and research, situated in the Tuscan hills overlooking Florence.

Since its founding in 1972 by the six original members of the then European Communities, the EUI has earned a reputation as a leading international academic institution with a European focus. The four departments – EconomicsHistory and CivilizationLaw, and Political and Social Sciences – host scholars from more than 60 countries, studying for the Institution’s doctorate or the one-year master in law. 

Furthermore, the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) focuses on inter-disciplinary, comparative and policy research on the major issues affecting European societies, while the Max Weber Programme for Post-doctoral Studies prepares fellows for a career in academia. The School of Transnational Governance, established in 2017, aims to deliver teaching and high level training on the concepts, methods and techniques of transnational governance. 

The EUI’s distinctly international environment offers unique academic training, enriches the intellectual experience and provides exceptional opportunities for academics across disciplines and borders.

The departments and centres are housed in 13 historic buildings scattered about the hillside which have undergone extensive renovation in recent years.

Heads of states, leading politicians and professors are regular speakers at the EUI, as part of the Institute’s long-established programme of conferences, workshops and summer schools.

The EUI library boasts around half a million volumes in the Institute’s specialist areas, attracting external researchers with an interest in Europe. The campus also hosts the Historical Archives of the European Union (HAEU), which provides an unparalleled insight into the workings of the European Union. In October 2012 the new premises of the HAEU opened at Villa Salviati, cementing the EUI’s commitment to preserving the history of Europe.
