Get involved

The CMCS is a young and vibrant center conducting cutting-edge research, and it acts as a hub in regional as well as global research networks. We would like to develop our collaborations with emerging as well as established researchers. If you are working in one of our fields of interest, there may be opportunities of getting involved with one of our projects. If any of the options below sound interesting to you, just get in touch with us!

Guest lectures and events

The CMCS regularly invites international academics and experts to give a guest lecture at the CEU or a presentation in one of the courses that CEU faculty teach.

Take a look at the Teaching section to find out more about CMCS's teaching activities, the Events section for a list of recent guest lectures and other events, and the News section to see if any events are coming up soon.

Networks of experts

We are developing networks of experts on specific issue areas. If you are an expert in one of our fields of work, please get in touch with us at

Visiting Fellows

We welcome PhD students who work in one of our fields of interest as Visiting Fellows at the CMCS. A Visiting Fellow usually stays at the CMCS for 1 or 2 months, gets a working space and is included in all relevant discussions, events and activities taking place at the center. He or she enjoys the unique experience working at an international research center and receives inspiration for his or her PhD project.

Pre-and Post-Doctoral Appointments for Spring / Summer 2014

For Spring and Summer 2014 we offer pre- and post-doctoral appointments with the expectation of residence in Budapest for 1-3 months, depending on the nature of the project. Ideal applications are working on doctoral projects, or have recently defended their doctoral work, and the stipend will be commensurate with experience. Researchers will conduct basic research on media, technology and political change. Depending on the duration of the stay, it is hoped that researchers will have the time to advance their own research agenda and provide some research assistance to the faculty working at CMCS. We welcome applications from a variety of disciplines, including the social, information and computer sciences, and media, law, or science and technology studies. More

Temporary Research Fellowships

We sometimes offer temporary grants for young researchers who would like to work with us on a specific research project and who help to advance such a project substantially.
