At the core of the activities of the Institute of Advanced Study lies a funded fellowship programme. Most fellows will contribute to the Institute’s annual theme, which is normally publicised a year in advance. An IAS fellowship provides the holder with the space and time to develop their research and ideas in a thriving academic community of scholars of national and international standing. Fellows will engage and forge strong links with at least one department at Durham, and be given the opportunity to deliver papers at events organised to coincide with the annual theme.
Fellowships are normally offered for a three-month period and the IAS supports up to 10 fellowships per semester. The first semester covers the period October to December, the second semester covers the period January to March. IAS Fellowships are not available during April-June or the Christmas and Summer vacations.
The IAS will cover the costs associated with the fellow travelling to Durham, UK from their home institution (return fare - economy class) and will provide all fellows with an honorarium (£2,500 for three months or pro rata for shorter stays). Academics who will not be on research leave/sabbatical leave whilst on fellowship at Durham are eligible to apply for teaching buy-out costs of up to £8,000 (for the three month period or pro rata for shorter stays). Alternatively individuals who will experience a loss of income as a result of accepting an IAS fellowship are eligible to apply for a contribution towards their lost salary/earnings.
