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 2017.
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. Particular preference will be given to scholars with a strong international profile who will contribute in a distinctive way to the research environment of the School.
While there is no fixed period for the fellowships, applications for placements of less than 2 weeks’ duration will not normally be considered.
Applicants should be of postdoctoral status or have equivalent experience.
