The John H. Dunning Visiting Fellowship Programme


We are pleased to announce the launch of the John H. Dunning visiting fellowship programme, hosted by the John H. Dunning Centre for International Business at the Henley Business School, University of Reading.  

The visiting fellowship programme is aimed at creating opportunities for both young and established researchers in the field of international business to visit and collaborate with academics at the Centre, and to utilise resources associated with the John H. Dunning Library. 

Visiting fellows are expected to give at least one seminar, and to spend a minimum of 2 weeks in residence over an academic year, preferably longer. We expect also to include at least one article to the JHD discussion paper series. They will become associate fellows of the Dunning Centre, and are entitled to refer to themselves as a 'Dunning Fellow'.

Dunning Fellows are expected to be actively engaged in the field of international business (broadly defined), and with an inclination towards multi-disciplinary and theory-driven research, in the tradition of John Dunning.  Preference will be given to younger scholars at an early stage of their career, but this does not preclude more established scholars.

Applications are invited from interested candidates for the academic year 2011-12, where we will appoint two Fellows. Interested parties should submit:

1.      1. a research proposal, indicating expected output;

2.     2.  A detailed CV, listing publications;

3.       3. A cover letter indicating how the applicants will benefit from an association with the Dunning Centre and its members, and fits with the values and research tradition of the Reading School.

An honorarium is associated with the Dunning Fellowship. This is intended to subsidise the scholar’s expenses associated with travel and board. However, applicants are encouraged to seek supplementary resources from other sponsors. Academics who are seeking to take a sabbatical may find this especially appealing. 

The Dunning Fellowship has been made possible in part by a donation by Christine Dunning in memory of her late husband.
