Fellowship Opportunity at Durham University's Institute of Advanced Study

Launched in October 2006 to mark the 175th anniversary of the foundation of the University, the IAS generates transformational thinking by facilitating exchanges of knowledge across the full spectrum of disciplinary areas. We hope that the Institute’s Fellowship programme will attract the most distinguished scholars from around the world and foster their long-term international collaborations with Durham scholars.

Each Fellowship provides an honorarium (£3,000); a travel allowance; and accommodation. There are up to 20 fellowships available annually, and each is for a three-month period (October-December 2022 or January-March 2023). Some of the Fellowships are reserved for academics nominated as collaborators in research project developments sponsored by the IAS (for details see https://www.durham.ac.uk/research/institutes-and-centres/advanced-study/projects/future-projects/). However, open Fellowship applications are invited from scholars who would also like to work with these projects, or who want to come to Durham for a term to work on collaborative interdisciplinary research projects with academics at Durham University. During their stay, Fellows are expected to deliver a public lecture, present a ‘work in progress’ seminar and to engage generally in IAS activities. 

Applications for the 2022/23 Fellowships are now welcome. The closing date for applications is 25 June 2021. Further information about the Fellowship scheme, including application details, are available at www.durham.ac.uk/research/institutes-and-centres/advanced-study/fellowships-funding/ias-fellowships/.
