Applications are invited for an *International Fellowship for early to

Applicants must be early career urban scholars with a PhD obtained within
the preceding 5 years who currently work in a university or other research

experienced senior urban scholar at the candidate’s chosen research
institution. Further particulars are available to download here

small budget available for the mentor to assist the Fellow to meet their
intended research aims should this be appropriate.
