What is Sir Ratan Tata Fellowship 2015?

The Sir Ratan Tata Foundation and the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE) invites applications for the Sir Ratan Tata Post-doctoral Fellowship, now in its nineteenth year. Applicants should be early career researchers working on social science research focusing on South Asia.

Applicants should have completed a PhD - the fellowship is not intended for students registered for a degree or diploma, nor is it intended for senior academics.

About the Fellowship

The Sir Ratan Tata Post-doctoral Fellowship will be for a period of eight months during the 2015-16 academic year and will be based at the LSE Asia Research Centre (ARC).

The Fellow will receive a monthly subsistence allowance of up to £1,500 a month, and will also be provided with shared office space and access to research facilities at the School.

The Fellow will be expected to engage in social science research broadly on the themes of Economy and Society in South Asia with a particular focus on the following themes:

  • Growth and inclusion
  • Climate change and environmental sustainability
  • Social and human security
  • Population and development
  • Governance and democracy

The Fellow will be expected to finish a piece of research of publishable quality during their stay and make a presentation at a seminar or lecture arranged by the Asia Research Centre.
