Description

Chatham House is pleased to invite applications for the Robert Bosch Stiftung Academy Fellowship (Russia and Eurasia) in the Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs. 

A fellow’s time will be split between three key areas: 

  • Completing a personal research project of the fellow's own design undertaken with the guidance of a Chatham House expert, (approximately 50%).
  • Contributing to the ongoing research activities of their host research team and other Chatham House teams as appropriate (approximately 20%).
  • Participation in the Academy’s Leadership Programme (approximately 30%). The Leadership Programme is a key part of the Academy fellowships. It provides fellows with the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills, network and self-awareness, which they can then draw upon in their future careers as effective leaders in their field.

Academy fellows are drawn from government and the broader policy community, the private sector, media and civil society.
