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.

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.
Further details are available on the following AHRC webpage. http://www.ahrc.ac.uk/FundingOpportunities/Pages/VisitingFellowships.aspx

New Round of Newton Fellowships

Posted in Funding opportunities, Research Fellowships by Pippa on October 30, 2008

A new round of Newton Fellowships – an initiative to fund research collaborations and improve links between UK and overseas researchers – has opened. 

The Newton International Fellowships are funded by the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society and aim to attract the most promising post-doctoral researchers working overseas in the fields of humanities, engineering, natural and social sciences. The Fellowships enable researchers to work for two years with a UK research institution, thus establishing long-term international collaborations.

The funding will be distributed in the form of 50 research fellowships, awarded annually, each providing support of up to £100,000 for a two year placement.  The scheme is open to post-doctoral (and equivalent) early-career researchers working outside the UK who do not hold UK citizenship.

The closing date for applications is Monday, 12 January 2009.

Further details are available from the Newton International Fellowships website: www.newtonfellowships.org  or call 00 44 (0)20 7451 2559
