The European Institute together with the Hellenic Observatory are pleased to invite applications for Visiting Research Student(s) (VRS) at the LSE for the academic year 2015/16. This scheme is supported by the Hellenic Observatory and is open to research students who are currently registered for a PhD at a university in Greece or Cyprus. Research topics will fall within the social sciences, focussing on the EU and/or SE Europe.
INTERNSHIP VALUE AND DURATION
The VRS will be able to spend one or two academic terms at the School. A supervisor will be assigned to every VRS, and the student(s) will be able to take up to two full unit taught courses. Certain seminars and classes can be attended subject to the advice and approval of the supervisor and teachers concerned. Examinations are optional, and grades do not contribute towards a degree or diploma.
The Hellenic Observatory will cover the VRS tuition fees of £3,208 per term and provide a subsistence award of £3,800 to each student for each term. The support will be for either one student for 2 terms or two students for 1 term each. The terms are Michaelmas Term (24 September-11 December 2015) and Lent Term (11 January-23 March 2016).
Students must be residents in London and attend full-time and continuously for the duration of their VRS period. The VRS will be expected to provide 15 hours of research and/or admin work per week for the HO during their VRS period.
