Funded Robert Bosch Stiftung Academy Fellowship is now accepting applications. The fellowship is for a 10-month term from mid-September 2019 to mid-July 2020. During the fellowship, the fellow will conduct a research project of their own design which falls within the research topic ‘Transition experiences and developments in relations between Central and Eastern Europe and sub-Saharan Africa’.
A fellow’s time will be split between three key areas:
- Completing a personal research project of the fellow’s own design undertaken with the guidance of a Chatham House expert
- Contributing to the ongoing research activities of their host research team and other Chatham House teams as appropriate
- Participation in the Academy’s Leadership Programme, since the Leadership Programme is a key part of the Academy fellowships. It provides fellows with the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills, network and self-awareness, which they can then draw upon in their future careers as effective leaders in their field.
The fellow will receive a monthly stipend of approximately £2,295. Moreover, there will be modest provisions for the costs of relocation, fieldwork, and possible publication costs.
