Visiting Scholars

The LTRK programme has occasional opportunities for academics or others working in the area to be visiting scholars as research associates of the programme. We cannot fund visitors' travel, accommodation, or the like. However, we can provide library facilities and sometimes desk space. Visitors are expected to contribute to the programme, the School or the University in some way, usually by presenting a guest lecture or seminar. Visitors from the UK and abroad are welcome. Expressions of interest may be directed to Dr Lawrence McNamara ( at least 3 months ahead of the proposed visit but 6 months notice or more is recommended. Emails should have the subject heading 'LTRK visiting scholar - expression of interest' and should indicate (1) your proposed research activities while a visitor (300-500 words); (2) how your work fits with the programme (100-200 words); (3) the proposed period of your visit; (4) your nationality and any residency or citizenship you have in the UK/EU; (5) a curriculum vitae should be attached.
