Subir Chowdhury Post-doctoral Fellowship on Quality and Economics

The Subir Chowdhury Post-doctoral Fellowship on Quality and Economics was established in 2010 at the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE). The Fellowship is supported by the Subir and Malini Chowdhury Foundation. The Subir Chowdhury Post-doctoral Fellowship on Quality and Economics is for a period of three months during each academic year, based at the LSE India Observatory. The Fellow is expected to engage in research examining the impact of people quality and behaviour on the economies of Asian nations, prioritising but not restricted to, India and Bangladesh. The main objective of this programme is to examine the links between quality and economics. The Fellow is expected to finish a research paper of publishable quality during their stay and make a presentation at a seminar arranged by the India Observatory. All data collection and any material required for the research should be secured before coming to the LSE. The Fellow will receive a monthly subsistence allowance of up to £1,750 a month, and will be provided with shared work space and access to research facilities at the School. Assistance will also be provided towards the cost of travel and related expenses. No additional grant is available for fieldwork or any other costs.
