African Research Fellowship call for applications
The Global South Unit within the LSE's Department of International Relations invites applications for the African Research Fellowship
The submission deadline for applications is 1 December 2014.
With the generous sponsorship of the Development Bank of Latin America, the GSU facilitates a three-month visiting fellowship.
A call for candidates to apply will be released shortly.
Candidates will be invited to apply for the three-month CAF-LSE Visiting Fellowship in the Politics of the Global South for the Term. This is an exciting opportunity for a senior or mid-career researcher to pursue and present his or her own research in the context of the academic life of the LSE and the Department of International Relations. The fellowship is intended to support scholarship related to South-South cooperation, and particularly research related to Latin America in a global context.
