Eligibility Criteria: The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities (BIH) welcomes applications to join the Institute in the 2018-19 academic year as Visiting Research Fellows from established researchers from outside the UK whose focus is relevant to BIH.
Application Procedure: We have an annual call for applications. Applications need to be sent to the BIH by a Birkbeck member of staff from one of our three funding schools (Arts, Law, and SSHP). International researchers interested in applying for a fellowship should, in the first instance, identify which members of staff they would like to work with during their proposed fellowship and contact them to ascertain if they are willing to act as a nominator for their application. Each application requires at least one academic from Birkbeck to act as a nominator.
Once a nominator has been agreed, applicants should complete the Visiting Research Fellowship Application form electronically, in collaboration with the Birkbeck member of staff, and send it along with a one page CV to the BIH Manager Madison Brown by 21 May 2018.
Applicants will be advised of the outcome within three weeks of the deadline.
Please fill in this form electronically and return to Madison Brown (m.brown-at-bbk.ac.uk) by the deadline of Monday 21 May 2018.
