The Harry Frank Guggenheim Research Fellowship at Pembroke College, University of Cambridge, was established in 2011 to support post-doctoral research proposing to make a significant contribution to the study of violence.
Selected by Pembroke College, the three-year award focuses on the causes, manifestations, and control of violence in the present world. Priority is given to candidates who make a compelling case for the relevance of potential findings for policies intended to reduce these ills.
Candidates are drawn from the disciplines of human, political, and social sciences, international relations, and aligned fields. The fellow is resident at, and admitted as a fellow of, Pembroke College during their tenure.
The fellowship provides an opportunity to organize a conference at Cambridge to explore an aspect of the fellow’s research that is pertinent to both scholarship and practice and to write and speak on their work in coordination with the Foundation.
Surer Mohamed has been named the 2021-2024 Pembroke Fellow. Ms. Mohamed, a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Politics and International Studies at Queens’ College Cambridge, is studying post-conflict urban reconstruction and conflict-related property disputes in Mogadishu, Somalia.
