*The Alan Rugman Visiting Fellowship *

We are pleased to invite applications for the Alan Rugman visiting 
fellowship programme for the 2016-17 academic year, hosted by the John 
H. Dunning Centre for International Business at the Henley Business 
School, University of Reading.

The Alan Rugman Visiting Fellowship was established in 2015. This is an 
annual award which honours the work of the late Professor Alan Rugman, 
and is therefore available to scholars whose work is explicitly linked 
to topics aligned with his academic interests. The award is in part 
available thanks to a donation from Helen Rugman in memory to her late 
husband. The inaugural  Alan Rugman Visiting Fellow for 2015/16 is Dr 
Chang Hoon Oh of Simon Fraser University, Canada.

Visiting fellows are expected to give at least one seminar, and to spend 
between 2 and 4 weeks in residence over an academic year (between 
September and June), and are seeking to develop joint research with our

Applications are invited from interested candidates for the academic 
year 2016-17. Interested parties should submit:

2.A detailed CV, listing publications;

3.A cover letter indicating how the applicants will benefit from an 
association with the Henley Business School and its members, and fits

We willsubsidise 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.
