The EU-sponsored Durham International Fellowships for Research and Enterprise (DIFeREns) allows Durham University to gather together scholars, researchers, policy makers or practitioners from around the world and across the full spectrum of science, social science, arts and humanities to address themes of global significance in collaboration with Durham's Research Institutes and researchers.

As part of the DIFeREns scheme Durham University recruits two types of Senior Fellow :

  • Senior Research Fellowships
  • Policy and Enterprise Fellowships

Up to 24 Fellowships will be available in (2016-17): 16 Senior Research Fellowships and 8 Policy and Enterprise Fellowships.

Applications are encouraged from individuals who wish to work on collaborative research projects with one of Durham University's thematic Institutes or with the Durham University Business School (DUBS) :

However, applications are also welcome from individuals wishing to collaborate on a research project associated with other research groups or Research Centres at Durham University.
