2014-2015 Visiting Fellowships
LSHTM is offering a limited number of visiting fellowships during the academic year 2014-2015 (Sept-June) for individuals wanting to conduct ethics or philosophical research and/or scoping activities for future joint research. Visiting fellows will be provided work space, and be free to explore all three research faculties as well as surrounding University of London institutions.
Terms of Appointment
A Visiting Fellow ('Visitor') may stay at LSHTM from 4 to 12 weeks depending on the work plan. They are expected to make a lunchtime presentation during their stay. There is no stipend attached to the fellowship. Whenever possible, visiting fellows are expected to contribute to modest administrative costs. Suitable candidates from low and middle income countries with no available support may be considered for bursaries. Due to the nature of the position, LSHTM will be unable to sponsor a Visitor who does not already have right to work in the UK and/or obtain an appropriate visitor visa. Please do inform us if you need guidance, and consulthttps://www.gov.uk/business-visitor-visa.
Applicants can be experienced professionals or must have completed all of their requirements for a PhD or other equivalent degree prior to their visit. The applicant may have any background but the resarch should be related to ethics, philosophy of human health, and human rights. The application will be evaluated on the content, feasibility, and reasons for carrying it out specifically at LSHTM.

A curriculum vitae;
