In recognition of the extensive global research partnerships fostered by Warwick academics, the IAS Residential Fellowships scheme offers the opportunity to bring collaborators to Warwick for a short, intensive stay specifically to deliver joint outputs. Applications are welcomed on a rolling deadline. Applicants are requested to read the Information for Award Holders while crafting their application.
The Residential Fellowship programme aims to facilitate the delivery of collaborative research activity by providing the opportunity for external partners to be based at Warwick to work on a shared deliverable at the same time as supporting the continuation of the partnership. The activity can include but is not limited to the following:
- Defining a new area of collaborative research
- Writing a joint publication
- Developing a monograph, chapter or book publication
- Preparing a large funding application
- Preparing material for a large conference, symposium or summer school led by Warwick
- Delivering a public engagement event
- Developing REF-impact
Nominations to host a Residential Fellow must be made by a permanent (including probationary) member of Warwick’s academic staff (Nominator), or holders of a major, externally funded Fellowship. The fellowship candidate cannot apply independently to the IAS – it is expected that the candidate will already be known to the Warwick nominator.
Members of research organisations and universities holding a post equivalent to an academic or postdoctoral appointment are eligible nominees, as are members of the arts community, policy makers and representatives from business and industry etc. Nominees may be based in any country, however, if they are already based in the UK, the added value of hosting them as a Residential Fellow must be stipulated in the application.
This scheme provides accommodation and a travel bursary only. The travel allowance is based on the country of origin of the Nominee as follows:
- UK fellow - £100 contribution
- Fellow travelling from Europe - £250 contribution
- Fellow travelling from outside Europe - £550 contribution (from 16-17)
Fellows will be hosted at one of our self-catered residential facilities; Cryfield Grange or Cryfield Cottage 1. Prior to completing the travel arrangements, the host must check with the IAS to confirm accommodation is available for the duration of the visit. Taxi transportation between the Grange and Warwick campus is covered by the IAS. The IAS is only able to provide accommodation at Cryfield Grange or Cryfield Cottage 1 – alternative accommodation costs would need to be covered from other sources.
Please note: We currently have very limited availability in our accommodation between mid October and the end of November and also during mid December 2019. Please contact the IAS for up-to-date availability.
Additional financial resources required to support the activities to be undertaken during the visit and/or the additional travel and subsistence costs are expected to be provided from other departmental/external sources including the Nominee themselves.
