School of Law, Politics and Sociology

LPS Visiting Fellowship Scheme

The School of Law, Politics and Sociology at the University of Sussex offers a Visiting Research Fellowship scheme.

What are Visiting Research Fellowships?

We encourage the award of 'Visiting' appointments to researchers and scholars who will contribute to the intellectual life of the School. Appointments can be made for periods of two weeks to one year, and must be approved by the Director of Research and Knowledge Exchange or the Head of School.

Normally, Visting Research Fellows are members of faculty at another institution, either in the UK or abroad, or those working in the public or private sectors, and/or self-employed research consultants.

 Visiting Research Fellowships

  • These Fellowships are open to applications from scholars who wish to spend time in the School, or establish stronger links with its members. 

    Visiting Fellowships will be awarded for 12 months in the first instance, and visits during the fellowship can be for durations of between two weeks and the full year. They are subject to a bench fee of £200 per annum.
