USM’s KRVIA RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM 2023-24 CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The KRVIA has been conducting its Research Fellowship Program since 1998 with the intent of promoting active research in the disciplines of architecture, design, art, technology, humanities and urban studies. The KRVIA Research Fellowship Program is offered to TWO research fellows, who have completed their graduation in architecture and wish to pursue independent research in their area of interest, for a period of 11 months.
Selection, appointment and allowances of Research Fellows: The selection of the Research Project proposed by the interested candidate will be based on the submission of research proposal, as per the prescribed format, along with a CV. A panel comprising the Director, the Dean of Research and Academic Development and the KRVIA Research Fellowship Coordinator will formulate a clear marking system indicating the parameters and other criteria on which the selection will be made.
The research fellow is expected to spend 20 working hours per week at the Institute. A remuneration of Rs. 150/hour of biometric logged in time will be paid to the research fellow by the Institute. The institute will not provide for any travel or other allowances incurred by the research fellow during the course of the appointment. If the research project is prolonged beyond the assigned period of 11 months, the Institute shall not be responsible for compensating the research fellow for any additional work. 50% of the payable amount per month (as per logged in time) will be released every month, 25% will be released after approval of adequate work by the Review Panel quarterly and 25% will be released on adequate completion at the end of the project. If performance is found to be inadequate, the stipulated amount for that review will be withheld till adequate improvements are made and shown during the next Panel review. Thus, it is in the researchers’ best interest to produce good quality work for every review. No requests for part release of amount etc. will be entertained in between reviews or any advances in any circumstance.
Please note the research fellow cannot hold any appointment, paid or otherwise or receive emoluments that may directly conflict with or affect their performance during the tenure of the fellowship.
Applicants holding an equivalent fellowship affiliated to another University/Academic Institution need not apply.
Application Deadline: Saturday, 15th April 2023
The KRVIA Research fellowship programme will commence on 5th June 2023 and end on 30th April 2024.
