Applications are open for Richard and Susan Hayden Academy Fellowship in London. This fellowship is a joint initiative with Richard and Susan Hayden. It offers candidates at the mid-stage of their career the opportunity to spend ten months at Chatham House working on a personal project of their choosing.
Fellows take part in the core work of the Institute, developing their skills through the leadership programme, and furthering their professional network in the field of international affairs.
A fellow’s time will be split between three key areas

- Contributing to the ongoing research activities: working with their host research team and other Chatham House teams as appropriate (approximately 20%).
- Leadership Programme: it is a key part of all fellowships. It aims to develop fellows knowledge, network, self-awareness and to equip them with important skills on which they can draw in their future careers as leaders in their field (approximately 30%).
