In recognition of the important contribution that international academics play in driving research for the future, this scheme provides funding for mid-career researchers from our international priority-partner institutions to become Global Visiting Fellows of BU for 3 years. Global Visiting Fellows will be expected to contribute to the research environment linked to BU’s SIAs, and to the profile of the University through the collaborative involvement of staff and students, the dissemination of activities and outcomes, and public engagement. Applications proposing ambitious and innovative programmes of research and related engagement activities will be considered particularly favourably. Applications that incorporate social sciences and humanities are particularly welcome.
Fellows must be nominated by a member of academic staff at BU, and approved by the relevant Executive Dean. For those who would like to find out more about this scheme, there are a number of events (below) and further information documented in the guidelines.
