The programme is intended to provide these scholars with an opportunity to pursue high-quality original research in an inequality-related topic, while collaborating with more established III researchers on existing projects. Applications will close on 15/01/2022 and successful candidates are expected to start by September 2022 at the latest (but possibly earlier).
