Candidates will need a PhD in Anthropology or with dissertation submitted for examination by 31 July 2017. Preference will be given to candidates in the early stages of developing an academic career. Prior university-level teaching experience and excellent communication skills are essential.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 31st July 2017 (23.59 UK time). Regrettably, we are unable to accept any late applications.

Unfortunately this role will not meet the Resident Labour Market Test required by the UKVI in order for the School to be eligible to apply to sponsor candidates who do not currently have the right to work in the UK or who are currently working under Tier 2 of the UKVI Points Based System.

An LSE Fellowship is intended to be an entry route to an academic career and is deemed by the School to be a career development position.  As such, applicants who have already been employed as a LSE Fellow for three years in total are not eligible to apply. If you have any queries about this please contact the HR Division.
