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.
Further particulars are available at http://www.qmul.ac.uk/postgraduate/hss.

Visiting Research Fellowships
Academic Year, 2009-10
Application Deadline: January 15, 2009
CCIS will offer a limited number of Visiting Research Fellowships at both the predoctoral and postdoctoral levels for the 2009-10 academic year. These awards are to support advanced research and writing on any aspect of international migration and refugee flows, in any of the social sciences, history, law, and comparative literature. Due to funding constraints, CCIS is able to award fellowships only to scholars who have a current or former affiliation with a University of California campus (as a graduate student, faculty member, or researcher). Self-funded Guest Scholars are not required to have a UC affiliation. Fellowships must be held in residence at UCSD (commuting from outside of San Diego is not permissible).
