New Zealand-UK Link Foundation Visiting Professorship
The NZ-UK Link Foundation Visiting Professorship programme enables a high-calibre New Zealand professor to spend three months in the School of Advanced Study with access to extensive research facilities and the appropriate academic specialists as required.
The NZ-UK Link Foundation anticipates that this new Visiting Professorship will establish a high profile in the UK, especially in London. It therefore seeks to appoint high-calibre candidates whose research interests contribute to an understanding and appreciation of some important aspects of the contemporary relationship between the UK and NZ. Successful candidates might represent numerous academic disciplines – from history to environmental science, from economics to social policy, from political science to trade, and so on. The Foundation does not expect that candidates should be limited to those with NZ nationality or residency but candidates must have an excellent understanding of the circumstances in both the UK and NZ so as to be able to make a significant contribution.
