Please note that LSE SEAC does not provide supervision for PhD students. Applicants interested in studying at the LSE should contact the relevant Department.

This category applies to post-doctoral researchers or non-academic professionals at a broadly comparable level in the early stages of their career. Academic candidates should have completed a PhD at the time of application.
Visiting Senior Fellow
This category is for academic visitors who have already published work of distinction, or visiting non-academic professionals at a broadly comparable level in their profession. In addition, academic candidates must be at least at the Lecturer (post-major review equivalent), Senior Lecturer, Reader or Associate Professor Level at their home institution.
