Short-Term Research Fellowships 2017–2018

The Kuwait Programme wishes to announce the availability of Short-Term Research Fellowships at LSE.

Based in the LSE Middle East Centre, the two Fellowships will enable the successful candidates to pursue research relevant to the Kuwait Programme for 2-3 months. Applications are invited from researchers based at academic or research institutions in Kuwait who have a PhD or equivalent and wish to develop their research capacity and output.

The successful candidates will have access to the library, and will receive desk space and administrative support. The Fellowships include accommodation at LSE, a living allowance and a return economy flight to London.

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

The application deadline is 31 July 2017. Applicants can undertake their Fellowship at any time in the academic year 2017-2018. Interviews will be held in September 2017.

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.
