Durham University's Institute of Advanced Study Fellowships

Publish Date: Apr 16, 2015

The IAS was founded as a high-profile initiative to showcase Durham University’s research capacity, including promoting excellence nationally and internationally, facilitating multi- and inter-disciplinary research, catalysing new research capacity, and harnessing the potential for creativity and collaboration. Furthering these aims and lying at the heart of the Institute’s activities are the Fellowship programmes organised and administered by the IAS.
IAS Fellowship Programme. Deadline: Jun. 5, 2015

The Fellowships are designed to attract talented researchers, both junior and senior, from across the globe and build international networks with a common passion for the deepest theoretical questions and most pressing practical problems facing humanity. We are able to bring academics as well as non-academics not only to the Institute via its IAS Fellowship programme but also to Departments and other Research Institutes following the introduction, in 2011, of the DIFeREns Fellowships.

The DIFeREns scheme has also seen the introduction of Junior Research Fellowship, as well as Senior Research Fellowships and Policy & Enterprise Fellowships.
