Applications are invited for Visiting Research Fellowships of between two and six months at University of Edinburgh Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, tenable in the period: June 2011-September 2013. No limitation is placed on the area of research within the Humanities and Social Sciences but priority is given to those whose work falls within the scope of one of the Institute's current Research Themes:
Candidates for Fellowships will normally hold a doctorate. Consideration will be given to the academic record and the publications of all applicants and their capacity to disseminate their views among a community of like-minded people. Candidates should give evidence of any contact they have made with researchers at the University of Edinburgh, and of proposed collaboration during their visit to Edinburgh; those who do make such contact before submitting their applications will be at an advantage.
Fellows are expected to be resident in Edinburgh throughout the tenure of their Fellowship and to play a full part in the activities of the Institute. The Institute will be pleased to help with finding suitable accommodation in Edinburgh but is unable to pay accommodation costs. The minimum tenure for a Fellowship is two months; applications for less than two months will not be considered. No regular teaching is required but Fellows usually give at least one seminar on their current research work.
The Institute is housed in an 18th century courtyard close to the University Library and about 20 scholars are in residence at any time. Fellows are allocated a private office in the Institute with all the usual research facilities and are expected to play a full part in the activities of the Institute. They are also encouraged to develop their contacts with colleagues within the College of Humanities and Social Science. They give at least one seminar on their current research work during their tenure. The Fellowships are not funded.
