Gas Market Reform Fellowship

The aim of this three-month fellowship is to offer senior officials and professionals from the energy sector the opportunity to spend time in Dundee as a visiting Chevening Fellow.

Visiting fellows will work alongside leading academics in their field on their own independent research projects. Fellows are provided unrestricted access to classes, lectures, and seminars which will feed into their own chosen area of research, with support from an academic supervisor for the duration of their fellowship. At the time of interview the candidate’s proposed research will be discussed with a University of Dundee faculty member.

Fellows will be expected to source their own accommodation, with advice and support on living in the UK provided by the University of Dundee.
