After the successful first call for applications, MetroPolis are pleased to announce that the second call for applications for the Chancellor’s Fellowship Scheme is open.
We match researchers with policy-making organisations for a period of between 6 weeks to 6 months. We can provide costs up to £9000 per placement to cover expenses including accommodation, travel, paying for research assistant time, or purchasing equipment to enable/support the work. The individual placements can be part of the academic’s normal duties or a fully-embedded experience. The placements are designed to enable high-level research input into policy development, but also facilitate knowledge exchange between the academic and the host organisation in terms of research methodologies, academic expertise, policy-making processes and user environment experience. The ultimate outcome for the academic will be input into big policy challenges.
Fellows are asked to nominate a chosen placement organisation that they have already established links with or are endeavouring to establish links with currently. We welcome a number of approaches and experimental models, and will support a flexible approach that takes into account individual Fellows workloads and circumstances.
