Visiting scholars programme

Mae'r cynnwys hwn ar gael yn Saesneg yn unig.

Please note: we are currently only able to accept applications for Virtual Visiting Scholarships during the 2020/21 academic year.

Cardiff School of Law and Politics is committed to interdisciplinary, critical and doctrinal research and encourage applications from established and emerging scholars working within all relevant fields.

We give preference to applications for visiting scholarships of up to three months, though we will consider applications for longer periods in order to allow you to engage in research exchange with academics working in related fields.

Successful candidates will be able to use Cardiff University's online resources and join the School's online activities and present their work through its virtual collaborative networks. You will be expected to pursue a specific research project while within the School and to deliver and participate in research seminars. You will normally be expected to make at least one presentation to staff, often in the form of a seminar, and are encouraged to participate in other School activities.

We do not provide financial support for travel, accommodation or subsistence.

How to apply

Please include the following information in your application:

  • A description of your proposed area of research during the period as Visiting Fellow. The proposal should define the aims of the study, its methods and any proposed outcomes as clearly as possible.
  • The name(s) of any members of School staff with whom you have previously had academic contact and who works in an area similar to your own proposed study.
  • The names of two referees who are familiar with your work.
  • A curriculum vitae.
  • A statement to the effect that you have sufficient fluent command of oral English to enable you to participate actively in individual and group discussions.
