CALL FOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP APPLICATIONS
The UNLV International Center for Gaming Regulation (ICGR) is offering up to three 6-month nonresident fellowships to support impactful research on important gambling regulatory issues. These fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis via a peer review process outlined below.
TOPICS Submissions are welcomed on any topic of current interest to the global gambling regulatory community. We encourage submissions to engage topics that will be of immediate value to regulators as they make key decisions in all areas of gambling regulation. Our current topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• The role of technology in modernizing gambling regulation.
• Assessing the techniques and needs for training and educational programs for regulatory agencies.
• Understanding the impact to consumers of gambling products with the aim to improve gambling regulation.
• Evaluating the financial effects of regulation on the gambling industry.
Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with a final deadline for this cycle of September 1, 2017. Early submissions are encouraged. It is expected that the fellowship position will commence on October 1, 2017 and end on April 1, 2018.
It is expected that a white paper will result from each of the fellowship projects, though other deliverables (e.g., academic journal publications, conference presentations, or policy advocacy for best practices) are also welcome.
The fellowship is not a UNLV resident position. Therefore, successful applicants are not required to base themselves in Las Vegas for any portion or the entirety of the research project. Depending on the location of the successful applicant(s), it may be a requirement of the fellowship to participate in video conferences with stakeholders in order to disseminate the research results.
Submissions should be limited to no more than ten pages (excluding appendices), double spaced, 12-point font, and should be addressed to André Wilsenach, Executive Director, International Center for Gaming Regulation at firstname.lastname@example.org using the email subject heading “Research Fellowship Application”.
