PhD stipends


Nicole Koenig - Deputy Director

  • "I am leading the Centre’s think tank work on EU foreign and security policy, migration and institutional matters. It’s great to work at the interface between academia, the policy world and the media. A strong Franco-German dimension and clear international outlook makes it even more interesting." 

Jörg Haas - Affiliate Policy Fellow

  • „I spend most of my time writing a PhD thesis on economic policy coordination in the euro area, but I also analyse EU budget negotiations. One of the big advantages of working at the Centre is that it allows me to focus on issues that are politically relevant as well interesting from an academic perspective. Even more importantly, I get to work with a truly excellent team of colleagues who are committed, kind, and fun.”

Daniëlle Flonk - Research Associate and PhD Candidate

  • “I am a research associate working on how governments try to control and regulate internet content. I started  in September 2019 and was immediately involved in its activities. It is a socially engaging workplace with a cohesive team and great opportunities for research collaborations.  I especially like that we contribute to dynamic policy debates, for instance in the internet governance field.”

Vladimir Bogoeski - Research Fellow and PhD Candidate

  • "Being part of the Jacques Delors Centre has been an absolutely rewarding experience. As I study developments in EU labour law, the Centre offered me an interdisciplinary environment that gives a better understanding on theoretical insights and methods from other disciplines. This disciplinary diversity made me aware of various possibilities to explore a single issue which improved my own research approach immensely." 

Linda Hewitt - Press and Public Relations Officer

  • “My job is to keep the public informed about our latest publications; I also organise events at the Centre. What I appreciate about my work is that it is multifaceted as politics and research go together here. Our work is to be constantly confronted with pressing political issues while being actively involved with it. Always working with its fingers on the pulse of time makes it even greater!”
