Academy Stavros Niarchos Foundation Senior Fellowship

The Academy Stavros Niarchos Foundation Senior Fellowship is a joint initiative of Chatham House and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The purpose of this fellowship is to offer established leaders and practitioners from Greece and the Greek diaspora the opportunity to develop their understanding, ideas and approaches on the most pressing challenges facing the world. Fellows will have the chance to advance their knowledge, develop research skills and build links with the policy, academic and other communities in the UK and more widely.

Chatham House will provide a dynamic base within which the fellows can pursue their own research interests; further develop their personal interaction, communication and leadership skills; extend their global networks; and deepen their expertise by contributing to the institute’s research and activities. This experience will inform the fellows’ contributions to improved regional and national decision-making on issues of great relevance to prosperity and security in Europe and the world.

The 2017 application window is now open. The call will close on Monday 31 October 2016 at 17.00 GMT.

The fellowship is open to Greek nationals and the Greek diaspora. Candidates should be at an advanced stage in their career and should already have some research and publication experience. The 6-month fellowship will begin in February 2017.
