As part of its Institutional Partnerships Programme, Iran Heritage Foundation is supporting two Visiting Fellows in Iranian Studies at SOAS. Fellows will be given access to the SOAS library, office space and work station. They will receive a monthly stipend of £1,500 and will be refunded for the cost of their return journey from their country of residence to London to take up the Fellowship.
One Fellowship will be tenable from March 2012 for a maximum period of six months. Thereafter, two Fellowships per year will be offered starting from the beginning of the academic year 2012/13. Each Fellowship is available for a minimum of four and a maximum of six months.
Applicants will normally hold a PhD or equivalent and must demonstrate sufficient command of English to be able to take part in the academic life of SOAS. Their research may be in any discipline working on Iran.
