The Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation funds a 12-month research stay for a Non-European Union (EU) resident research fellow at the European Centre for Energy and Resource Security (EUCERS) at King's College London. The Fellowship includes a stipend of up to £30,319, which will pay a monthly stipend of £2,032, university fees and a conference and travel allowance. The fellow should be national of any of the MENA countries or Turkey and currently enrolled as a PhD student preferably at an institution in North Africa or the Middle East.
The topic of this year’s Fellowship is “Global climate policy between mastering energy transition and ensuring economic growth”.
The application deadline is July 15, 2018. After reviewing applications, candidates may be invited for an interview either in person or by telephone. The decision of the committee will be communicated to the successful applicant in writing by July 31, 2018 at the latest. The Fellowship starts on September 24, 2018.
The fellow will be required to write a 35-50 page research paper, for which KAS and EUCERS retain the (publishing) rights as well as a shorter paper that includes policy recommendations. The opportunity to present the results of the research in conferences hosted by KAS or EUCERS may develop within this framework. Cooperation beyond this between the fellow, KAS and EUCERS is subject to mutual agreement but is expected and encouraged. The fellow will have the opportunity to participate in and contribute to a workshop series on the topic and collect data from these sessions for their research study.
