The US-UK Fulbright Commission

Closes: 31st October 2014

The US-UK Fulbright Commission is now accepting applications for its 2015-16 Robertson Visiting Professor in British History Award

This award provides a career-development opportunity for an exceptional, British historian to teach at Westminster College, Missouri, a small, selective liberal arts college for one academic year. The modest lecturing requirement will allow time for establishing a collaborative relationship with the US National Churchill Museum and Churchill Institute and for conducting personal research.

‘British Historian’ is inclusively defined: we welcome applications from historians of all time periods, thematic areas, and geographical regions of the British Isles, candidates with a specialisation in British Imperial or Colonial history and historians in interdisciplinary fields, such as art history, music history, or the history of science. The applicant should have at least one year’s experience of teaching undergraduates.

The Fulbright-Robertson Award offers the following benefits:

A grant of $52,500, plus travel allowance of up to $10,000

A number of memberships

Sickness and accident benefit coverage

Visa sponsorship

Substantial pre-departure support, including a Finalists Workshop (March) and a 2-day Orientation Programme (July)

Once on-the-ground in the US, further support is offered by the Council for the International Exchange of Scholars (CIES)

Membership of an extensive Fulbright Alumni network after grant completion

Eligibility requirements: Applicants must be a UK citizen (resident anywhere) and hold or expect to receive a PhD (or equivalent professional training or experience) in a relevant area before departure to the US. Those who hold or who are eligible to hold US citizenship, or who are resident in the US at the time of application, may not apply for an Award from the US-UK Fulbright Commission.
