The IAS is currently discussing with the University’s senior managers contingency planning in relation to Covid-19. We are therefore putting our Call for Applications for IAS Fellowships on hold for the moment.
However, the 2021/22 IAS Fellowship scheme has opened a call for Fellowship Nominations, which can only be made by Durham academic colleagues. Nominating individuals for IAS Fellowships is a very effective way for colleagues across Durham University to bring world-leading scholars to Durham, to collaborate with them on IAS major projects or other research developments, and to expand Durham’s international network of research collaborators.
The deadline for receipt of Nominations is Monday 13 July 2020. Full details can be found using the link below.
The Institute of Advanced Study is one of Durham University’s flagship interdisciplinary research institutes. The Institute aims to build research capacity, realise potential, and meet the challenges of a changing world by bringing together world leading scholars and practitioners from all disciplines to work with Durham colleagues on collaborative projects of major intellectual, scientific, political and practical significance.
Up to 20, three-month fellowships are available (October-December and January-March) each year. Applicants may be from any academic discipline or professional background involving research, and they may come from anywhere in the world (though preference is given to International applicants). IAS Fellowships include an honorarium, funds for travel, accommodation, and costs associated with replacement teaching or loss of salary (where appropriate).
Durham offers Fellows time and freedom to think, away from the demands of their everyday professional lives. By recruiting Fellows from all around the world, the IAS also fosters an exciting intellectual environment in which thinkers from diverse cultural and disciplinary backgrounds can exchange ideas. Fellows will engage and forge strong links with at least one department at Durham, and are given the opportunity to deliver papers in many different settings.
