Short-Term Visiting Research Fellowship

LSE Kuwait Programme Short-Term Visiting Research Fellowship 2015

The Kuwait Programme on Development, Governance and Globalisation in the Gulf States at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) wishes to announce the availability of a Short-Term Visiting Research Fellowship.

Based in the LSE Middle East Centre, the Fellowship will enable the successful candidate to pursue research relevant to the Kuwait Programme for a period of up to three months. Applications are invited from GCC nationals who have a PhD or equivalent and wish to develop their research capacity and output.

The successful candidate will have access to the library, and will receive desk space at the LSE and administrative support. The Fellowship includes accommodation, subsistence and a return flight to London.

The Fellow will be required to write a research paper for publication by the Kuwait Programme, and to contribute to the work of the Kuwait Programme more generally.

The application deadline is 15 December 2014. The expected period is July-September 2015. Applicants who wish to propose different dates should indicate these. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, proposed dates of the Fellowship and a 2,500-word proposal (including bibliography) for a research paper, which explains its relevance to the work of the Kuwait Programme and the contribution it would make to the field.
