School of Law and Social Justice - International Visiting Research Fellowships
As part of its commitment to nurturing international research partnerships, the School of Law and Social Justice is funding up to 6 incoming International Visiting Research Fellowships up until July 2018.
The scheme aims to attract established academics from non-UK countries to undertake a period of research and develop collaborations with existing staff and/or research clusters within the School.
The applicants will collaborate with a member of academic staff at the School on their application and be hosted by them if successful.
While there is no fixed period for the fellowships, applications for placements of less than two weeks’ duration will not normally be considered.
Applicants should be of postdoctoral status or have equivalent experience.
