Note that you may apply for any of the below categories that you feel are most suitable, but LSE Health’s Committee and the School’s central Appointments Committee, reserve the right to confer at title at a more appropriate level.
Visiting Fellowships target researchers at an early stage of their career (pre-major review) who already hold a tenure-track university affiliation and wish to conduct a specific piece of research on a topic relevant to the research of the Hellenic Observatory. Applications by practitioners and researchers outside the academia may also be considered, but normally applicants should hold at least a PhD degree or have equivalent professional experience.
Visiting Senior Fellowships
The Visiting Senior Fellowship category is aimed at academics that are of the Lecturer (post major review), Senior Lecturer or Reader level, and practitioners or professionals at a broadly comparable level in their profession.The title of Visiting Senior Fellow is given to individuals from outside the School associated with School Departments/ Institutes/ Centres. The status is intended to apply to scholars who have already published work of distinction, as well as recognising the contribution from those in government service, in professional practice, in the private sector, or in other appropriate fields, to research and other Departmental/Institute/Centre activities.
The title of Visiting Professor is for those who have appropriate eminent distinction within the academic professions, and whose connections with the School are appropriate for such a title. Note that the title of Professor at a home institution does not guarantee a Visiting Professorship at LSE.
Visiting Professors in Practice
The title of Visiting Professor in Practice is for those who have appropriate eminent distinction within their area of practice without, however, having sufficient academic distinction.
