Timing: The Visiting Appointment start date for the next round of Visiting Fellow and Visiting Senior Fellow applications is the 1st June 2018. The deadline for submissions is Friday 30th March 2018. The Visiting Appointment start date for the next round of Visiting Professor and Visiting Professor in Practise is the 1st April 2018. The deadline for submissions is Friday 19th January 2018. Appointments can start at any time after the appointment start date, subject to agreement between the individual fellow and the Hellenic Observatory. However, we do prefer Visitors to be with us during term time and for a period of 6-12 months.
Duration: Fellowships will normally run for 6-12 months, but longer visits may, by exception, be approved. Shorter visits (minimum 10 weeks) may also be considered but this is not the School’s preference.
Status in the School: The title of Visiting Fellow, Visiting Senior Fellow, Visiting Professor & Visiting Professor in Practice is given to individuals from outside the School associated with School departments, institutes and Centres. Visiting Fellows have access to the facilities of the Hellenic Observatory, and will also be able to enjoy access to the facilities of LSE as a whole.
Funding: Visiting fellowships do not carry an emolument and the Hellenic Observatory does not normally offer a stipend. It is advisable that all interested applicants should firstly research the likely costs associated with living in London as these costs are high before proceeding with an application.
Computer facilities and desk space: Visiting Fellows, Visiting Senior Fellows, Visiting Professors & Visiting professors in Practice will be provided with an LSE login and email address, enabling them to use computer facilities at the School (for example, in the LSE library). The Hellenic Observatory may be able to provide Visiting Fellows , Visiting Senior Fellows & Visiting Professors with desk space, but this cannot be guaranteed.
Accommodation: the School is not able to make any arrangements for living accommodation for visitors. The LSE’s accommodation website, however, provides useful guidance on finding private rented housing.
