Research Fellows

Following requests by SNAP’s membership for assistance with desk research on areas relevant to their work on addressing statelessness, SNAP’s Secretariat has established a group of volunteer Research Fellows to provide research support to SNAP’s members.  

Referral of research projects to Research Fellows

On a rolling basis, SNAP’s Coordinator will contact Research Fellows and inquire as to their availability to assist with specific research projects.  

Research Fellows will receive a brief on the research topic, the time frames involved and the contact details of the SNAP member/s that the Research Fellow is assisting. 

Our Research Fellows are strongly encouraged to submit blogs for publication on SNAP’s website based on the work they complete for SNAP or any other research relevant to SNAP’s goal and objectives. 


Research Fellows must:

-          commit to volunteering with SNAP for at least 6 months,

-          be available to complete at least 10 hours of research per month,

-          complete accurate and thorough research, and

-          complete at least two research projects with SNAP within the first 6 months of their fellowship with SNAP.

Research Fellows will complete work for SNAP remotely and must have an active email address which they access regularly to communicate with SNAP’s Coordinator and SNAP’s members on research projects.

Research Fellows will receive written feedback from SNAP’s Coordinator and the relevant SNAP member/s following submission of each research project.

Research Fellows must hold an undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline, and have demonstrated excellent writing and research skills.

Candidates are invited send a cover letter outlining how their qualifications and experience meet the requirements for the position, and their CV, to
