Standard Visiting Appointments are non-contractual and unremunerated. Successful applicants are expected to have arranged their own source of funding and accommodation prior to applying. Bench fees of £100 per week may be charged for Standard Visitors (dependent on their funding). Applications are currently open with an inital deadline of 5 May 2023, and a rolling deadline thereafter.
As part of their visiting appointment, Visiting Researchers are expected to play an active part in contributing to the intellectual life of the Centre. In particular, they are expected to present a seminar paper or public lecture, produce written outputs, including a working paper and where appropriate a blog or op-ed, and to interact with the SEAC and wider LSE community. Please note that the LSE may charge a 'bench fee' for the duration of the appointment.
Appointees are responsible for their own visa arrangements (you will need to secure the ‘Academic Visitor’ visa for such an appointment) while SEAC will be able to provide supporting documentation upon request.
Applicants should submit an application form and CV (3-pages max, to include educational and professional background and a list of publications) to the Centre Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the stated deadline. You will also need to ensure that your two referees send their reference letters to email@example.com by the same deadline.
Selection criteria will include:
- Strength of the application
- Experience or potential of the candidate
- Contribution to LSE SEAC
- Availability of space and resources
