Please note that you may apply for whichever of the below categories that you feel is most suitable, but the Marshall Institute’s Executive Committee and the School’s central Appointments Committee reserve the right to confer a title at a more appropriate level.
Practitioners in Residence
Practitioners in Residence are vital to the Institute’s work, bringing practice to bear on the issues we care about and informing the direction of our teaching and research.
The Visiting Fellow Scheme is aimed at external scholars (pre-Major Review equivalent/of postdoctoral status), persons/practitioners of equivalent standing in government service, in professional practice, in the private sector, or in other appropriate fields.
The title of Visiting Professor is for those who have appropriate eminent distinction within the academic professions, and whose connections with the School are appropriate for such a title. Please note that the title of Professor at a home institution does not guarantee a Visiting Professorship at LSE.
Visiting Professors in Practice
The title of Visiting Professor in Practice is for those who have appropriate eminent distinction within their area of practice without, however, having sufficient academic distinction.
