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 Fellowship includes accommodation at the 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.

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, including reference to the Kuwait Programme's research theme/s, and the contribution it would make to the field. Applicants are advised to familiarise themselves with the work of the Kuwait Programme.
