Kaldor Centre: Visiting Fellowships for researchers with lived experience of displacement


The Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law at UNSW Sydney is currently accepting applications for two Visiting Fellowship positions for researchers with lived experience of displacement who are undertaking research in refugee and forced migration studies. These Fellowship positions are an opportunity to be based at the Kaldor Centre for a period of one to three months and to benefit from knowledge exchange and learning with the Kaldor Centre team, along with researchers from  UNSW’s Forced Migration Research Network.   


During the course of the Fellowships, the Fellows will be expected to pursue their own program of research and to engage with the Kaldor Centre community. They will actively contribute to the Emerging Scholars Network Annual Workshop on 21-22 November 2023 and the 2023 Kaldor Centre Conference on 20 November 2023 (registration fees for both events will be waived). Fellows will also have an opportunity to contribute to the development of the workshop program. 


Fellows will each be eligible for up to $2,000 AUD towards reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs. Organisation of any travel or accommodation is the responsibility of the Fellow. Fellows will also need to be physically present in Sydney for at least the period between 6-24 November 2023. Fellows will be provided with a desk and computer access on campus and access to UNSW Library resources for the duration of the Fellowship.  


Please note that this position is not a training course, nor is it applicable for people wishing to apply for a student visa to study on a course. For most of the period, the Fellows will be undertaking independent, self-directed research. Applications are now open on a rolling basis until suitable candidates are identified.
