The IHR administers one one-year Fellowship each year on behalf of the Jacobite Studies Trust.
This Fellowship may be held by an advanced doctoral student or early career postdoctoral researcher. Its purpose is to enable the Fellow to undertake historical research into the Stuart dynasty in the British Isles and in exile, from the departure of James II in 1688 to the death of Henry Benedict Stuart in 1807. This may also include work on their friends and supporters, their activities, their influence, their views, ideologies, artefacts and works of art; and the political, diplomatic, military, religious, intellectual, and cultural context in which they lived. The Fellowship is non-residential, and will be tenable from 1 October 2016.
Area of research: Jacobite History
At the discretion of the Director of the Institute, Fellows may engage in teaching or other paid work for up to six hours a week (note however that some categories of non-national may need to obtain a work permit in order to undertake this).
