HIGHLAND INSTITUTE FellowsHIP
The Highland Institute Fellowship seeks to attract world-class scholars actively engaged in both research and teaching in conjunction with partner institutions and granting agencies. Often based in staff positions in other universities around the world they engage in both short and long term research projects in South and Southeast Asia, and often work closely with postgraduate and early career researchers at the Institute in collecting, processing and publishing data and findings. Fellows may spend several weeks to several months engaged in fieldwork, and organise as well as present their ongoing work in the regular calendar of seminars, meetings and activities organised by the Highland Institute. Time permitting they engage in intensive or term-length modular teaching at primarily the postgraduate and early career research levels, and occasionally conduct research training workshops in local partner colleges and universities.
