Charles Wallace Trust Nottingham Fellowship for Pakistan, 2019/2020

Deadline: 01 March 2019

The Charles Wallace Pakistan Trust Visiting Fellowship at the University of Nottingham is now accepting applications for the 2019/20 academic year. The deadline for application submission is Friday 1 March 2019.

The Charles Wallace Pakistan Trust will sponsor a mid-career academic or practitioner from Pakistan on an attachment to the University of Nottingham Asia Research Institute, for a period of up to three months, commencing in September, 2019. A 'practitioner' includes professionals from the public and private sectors, including journalists, economists, public servants and business managers, as well as university faculty members at post-doctoral level.

The beneficiary of this award will undertake a programme of research and interaction at Nottingham, assisted where necessary by the staff of the Institute. The research topic can be chosen from a wide range of disciplines determining the current and future well-being of Pakistan.

The Institute would particularly welcome applications from people working on the implications of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) for Pakistan's domestic politics, issues relating to Modern Slavery e.g. by examining responsible sourcing practices in UK-Pakistan supply chains or the reorganisation of the federation of Pakistan, for example, the integration of FATA into Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. However, applicants working on other areas are also encouraged to apply.

The Fellowship will provide a return economy airfare from Pakistan and a monthly stipend of £1,450 to cover costs in Nottingham. No bench fee is required. Applicants must be Pakistani nationals living in Pakistan at the time of the application.

The deadline for the 2018/19 round is Friday 1 March 2019. The application form (Word) and a two page CV should be emailed to by 5pm GMT. References will be solicited, and Skype interviews of short-listed candidates are likely to be required. Queries about this position can be directed to Professor Katharine Adeney, Director of the University of Nottingham Asia Research Institute.
