The UNLV International Center for Gaming Regulation (ICGR) is offering up to three 6-month non-resident University of Nevada Research Fellowships to support impactful research on important gambling regulatory issues. These fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis via a peer review process outlined below.
Submissions are welcomed on any topic of current interest to the global gambling regulatory community. We encourage submissions to engage topics that will be of immediate value to regulators as they make key decisions in all areas of gambling regulation. Our current topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Applicants may be domestic or international, and may apply without an affiliation with a public, private, governmental, or non-profit entity.
Proposals will be reviewed by members of the ICGR’s Academic Council. Submissions will be evaluated based upon the following criteria:
In addition, should any primary research be carried out on human subjects, submissions should outline whether and how appropriate human subject reviews will be undertaken.
It is expected that a white paper will result from each of the fellowship projects, though other deliverables (e.g., academic journal publications, conference presentations, or policy advocacy for best practices) are also welcome.
The University of Nevada Research Fellowships are not a UNLV resident position. Therefore, successful applicants are not required to base themselves in Las Vegas for any portion or the entirety of the research project. Depending on the location of the successful applicant(s), it may be a requirement of the fellowship to participate in video conferences with stakeholders in order to disseminate the research results.
Submissions for the University of Nevada Research Fellowships should be limited to no more than ten pages (excluding appendices), double spaced, 12-point font, and should be addressed to André Wilsenach, Executive Director, International Center for Gaming Regulation at [email protected] using the email subject heading “Research Fellowship Application”.
Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with a final deadline for this cycle of September 1, 2017. Early submissions are encouraged. It is expected that the fellowship position will commence on October 1, 2017 and end on April 1, 2018.
