Visiting Appointments

The Middle East Centre welcomes applications for Visiting Fellowships on a rolling basis. Fellowships are mainly offered to researchers who will make a significant contribution to the work of the MEC. Fellowships may also be given to recognise or enable contributions to the MEC from those in journalism, government service, in professional practice, or in other appropriate fields. Please note that the MEC receives a high number of applications and is only able to support a very small proportion of these that fit best with the Centre’s research programmes and capacity. Visiting Fellowships are unpaid. PhD students are not eligible.
