OSUN Academy Fellowships will contribute to the Fellows’ ongoing research projects and enhance their engagement in OSUN academic and outreach programmes. The candidates will define clear research objectives for the term of the Fellowship at Chatham House. These objectives will be well aligned with both the wider context of academic work of the Fellow and the thematic and regional questions of the existing research programmes of Chatham House.
While at Chatham House, fellows help to strengthen our existing research and develop their own research project. Fellows disseminate their work through writing, speaking engagements, convening, and contributing to the Academy’s Leadership Programme (where applicable). They will also have the option of attending Leadership Programme activities throughout their period of residence allowing them to engage with world-class experts and build their capacity for independent thinking on global policy issues through developing a network with other like-minded future leaders.
With support from the Academy, junior OSUN fellows will have the opportunity to contribute to select Chatham House publications and outputs. These may include producing Expert Comments, articles in The World Today magazine, Video Explainers or podcasts. Fellows will also be encouraged to speak at and convene Chatham House events.
How long is the fellowship?
The fellowship is for a 2-month term in 2021/22.
Where will I be based?
The fellow will be based full-time at Chatham House in London.
Fellows are strongly encouraged to consider our existing research programmes and develop a research proposal that seeks to make a direct contribution to our work on specific topics and regions and to link this to the challenge of regional and global governance.
Working patterns will be flexible and some aspects of the programme may be held online to comply with safe Covid-19 working practices.
