AMI Visiting Fellow

AMI research invites applications for the academic year 2013-2014 for non-stipendiary visiting research fellowships. Applications are invited from international scholars, who are working on high impact research in line with the aims of the Al-Mahdi Institute. These fellowships are intended to encourage the development and dissemination of ideas.
