Who can apply?

We invite applications from postdoctoral researchers (or equivalent) who are employed by, or have an official connection with:

  • EITHER a Iraqi, Lebanese, Turkish or UK Higher Education Institution (i.e., a university or similar organisation)
  • OR a non-academic organisation (e.g. cultural heritage organisation, NGO, community group) in the UK or Iraq, Lebanon or Turkey with a demonstrated capacity to conduct research.

Applications must be led by an Iraqi, Lebanese or Turkish researcher and do not need UK collaborators.
