The International Business School invites qualified researchers who are planning or interested in conducting research in selected fields. The IBS Fellowships are non-stipendiary and require payment of a bench fee currently set at £1,500 per annum. Applications for Post-doctoral, Mid-career and Doctoral research fellowships are welcome. Senior and Honorary Fellowships are subject to a separate procedure and authorised by the Board.
