Distinguished Visiting Fellowships 2009/10

Posted in News/Information, Research Fellowships by Pippa on January 7, 2009

Queen Mary Graduate School in the Humanities and Social Sciences
 
Applications are invited for up to eight Distinguished Visiting Fellowships. The Fellowships are intended to appeal to senior scholars from the UK or overseas who wish to spend a period, for the purposes of research, in one of the most stimulating intellectual environments in London. They have been created by the College in response to a substantial donation from the Westfield Trust to build on-campus residential accommodation specifically for this purpose. The accommodation, part of a new student village, opened in September 2004.
 
The Fellowships are attached to the Graduate School in the Humanities and Social Sciences, to which ten academic Schools and Departments contribute: the School of Languages, Linguistics & Film (Spanish, German, French, Russian, Linguistics, Film), English; Drama; History; Politics; Law; the Centre for Commercial Law Studies; Geography; Economics, and the Centre for Business Management.
 
Fellowships cover the period September to December 2009 or January to April 2010. Fellows may by arrangement and at their own cost extend residence over a longer period if they wish, subject to the availability of accommodation.
Each Fellow is expected to give a Fellow’s Lecture, to contribute to the seminar programme in a relevant Masters programme and to participate in the intellectual life of the Graduate School, the College more generally and the University of London.
 
Expressions of interest, accompanied by a brief curriculum vitae (max. 10 pages) and brief description of research to be undertaken should be sent in electronic format by 15 February 2009 to Linda Grant, Administrator, Graduate School in the Humanities and Social Sciences on l.grant@qmul.ac.uk.

BA-AHRC-ESRC Visiting Fellowships for South Asia and Middle East

Posted in Funding opportunities, Research Fellowships by Pippa on December 18, 2008

The British Academy (BA), Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) are now inviting applications under the third round of their Visiting Fellowships scheme for South Asia and the Middle East.
The Scheme aims to attract early career researchers in any branch of the humanities or social sciences to collaborate on research and develop ideas likely to lead to a joint research proposal in the near future. Researchers, in conjunction with a UK host academic, can apply to spend two to six months undertaking a clearly specified research project in the United Kingdom.
