CR Parekh Fellowship

The fellowship is not currently offered.

The London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE) invites applications for the C.R. Parekh Fellowship. Applicants should be scholars in the social sciences with experience of research on India. They should hold a PhD - the fellowship is not intended for students registered for a degree or diploma, nor is it intended for senior academics.

About the Fellowship

The C.R. Parekh Fellow will be based at the Asia Research Centre, LSE, for a period of three months in the academic year 2012-13. The Fellow will receive a monthly subsistence allowance of up to £1,500 a month, the exact amount depending on qualifications, and will be provided with shared work space and access to research facilities at the School.

The Fellow will be expected to engage in social science research broadly on the themes of Economy and Society in India with a particular focus on the following themes:

  • Growth and Inclusion
  • Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability
  • Social and Human Security
  • Population and Development
  • Governance and Democracy

The Fellow will be expected to finish a piece of research of publishable quality during their stay and make a presentation at a seminar or lecture arranged by the Asia Research Centre.

The Fellowship is open to candidates from India only. The Fellowship is supported by the Nirman Foundation.
