Applications are open for LUCAS-LAHRI Virtual Research Fellowships Scheme 2021. The Leeds University Centre for African Studies (LUCAS), in collaboration with the Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute (LAHRI), is pleased to announce a limited number of short-term virtual research fellowships for 2021.
The LUCAS-LAHRI Virtual Research Fellowships are short-term (three-month) fellowships for academics based at institutions on the African continent, who through these positions will be given an opportunity to undertake a well-defined piece of research in collaboration with academics at Leeds. Each fellowship comes with an award of £1,000, to be used by the applicant for research expenses and/or buy-out from teaching duties at their institution.
During their tenure, the Fellows will be associated with the University of Leeds, administratively hosted by LAHRI, while intellectually embedded in the research community of LUCAS. They will have access to online library resources and participate in research activities of LUCAS and other units relevant to their research interests. Each Fellow will also deliver an open presentation, for example as a virtual student-facing lecture or a research seminar, based on the topic of their research.
