The Kuwait Programme on Development, Governance and Globalisation in the Gulf States at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) wishes to announce the availability of a Short-Term Visiting Research Fellowship.
Based in the LSE Middle East Centre, the Fellowship will enable the successful candidate to pursue research relevant to the Kuwait Programme for a period of up to three months. Applications are invited from GCC nationals who have a PhD or equivalent and wish to develop their research capacity and output.
The successful candidate will have access to the library, and will receive desk space at the LSE and administrative support. The Fellowship includes accommodation at the LSE, a living allowance and a return economy flight to London.
The Fellow 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 5 September 2016. Applicants can undertake their Visiting Fellowship at any time in 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.
