CLACS Early Career Fellowship in Latin American and Caribbean Studies
The purpose of this scheme is to provide support to early career scholars in Latin American and Caribbean Studies with relevant subject expertise to pursue innovative and interdisciplinary research in an environment tailored to such work, free from the competitive institutional constraints of other UK university institutions. The scheme enables the Fellow to engage a broad range of UK and international scholars in their research through the formation of networks and through collaboration in research projects, publications and dissemination events such as workshops, conferences and public engagement activities.
The 2021-2022 CLACS Early Career Fellowship scheme will provide for one position with funding for six months during the 2021-2022 academic year (between 1 October 2021 and 30 June 2022).

They should take the lead in convening academic events and conferences, present research findings at conferences and seminars, and prepare articles for publication in journals or edited volumes, and monographs. In addition, Fellows should contribute an article to the in-house blog Latin American Diaries, work-in-progress or unpublished material to the School of Advanced Study's online research repository SAS-Space.
