Our Visiting Fellows
"I was a visiting research fellow at LHRI for a year from July 2016 to July 2017. I am leaving the University of Leeds and the institute with great memories. From the director to the cleaning lady, everyone has been very friendly and helpful throughout my visit. Before this starts to sound like a hotel review for Trip Advisor, I have to say that I was by no means at the LHRI to enjoy myself. With its interdisciplinary outlook ready to welcome any good idea or question, LHRI is a great place to study, learn, conduct research, and exchange ideas especially if you are working across disciplines. In my case, different perspectives from top quality researchers from all around the world have added much to the research project I have been working on and, not to mention, to the publications I have made. LHRI is also a temple of seminars, talks, and conferences. Work in Progress seminar series, in which researchers present their findings and receive feedback from other fellows, have been immensely helpful for me. In addition, I can barely remember a day without coming across some high quality academic meeting or seminar in LHRI seminar halls. If you are planning to apply for a research fellow position where you can peacefully concentrate on your studies, use the vast resources University of Leeds offers, and get constructive feedback, you should either seriously consider LHRI and University of Leeds or, better still, stop searching now as you have found your place.
