Publish Date: Nov 17, 2019

Deadline: Dec 13, 2019

IAS Vanguard Fellowships Programme

This programme aims to attract outstanding early and mid-career researchers from global leading institutions, operating at the cutting edge of their disciplines, to work collaboratively with colleagues at the University of Birmingham.
Colleagues will focus on new and existing areas - topics that are timely, relevant, address national and international priorities, and cross disciplinary boundaries.

IAS Vanguard Fellowships and Diversity

Promoting different and new ways of thinking about problems lies at the heart of the IAS mission.  Diversity of thought comes in part from diversity of experiences and cultures.  

A high proportion of recent nominations for IAS Vanguard Fellowships have been white male candidates. In the coming round, we challenge colleagues to nominate people in the early stages of their independent careers from a more diverse range of backgrounds, and particularly welcome the nomination of women and people from minority ethnic groups as visiting fellows to share knowledge and establish long-term collaborations. 

Deadlines are: December 13 2019 and March 16 2020


Applications will be assessed against the following criteria:

  • Academic excellence and standing against career stage of the proposed Vanguard Fellow;

Please note that we seek early/mid-career researchers would normally be within 15 years of achieving their PhD, who hold a research post in academia, industry, charity, arts or other organisations, which are equivalent to academic post of Lecturer or above, or who hold an individual Principal Investigator Fellowship.

  • The extent to which the visit has the potential to enhance existing collaborative research or pump prime new areas.
