Durham University

Institute for Advanced Study

Closing date: 10th June 2016

The Institute of Advanced Study is Durham University's flagship interdisciplinary research institute, providing a central forum for debate and collaboration across the entire disciplinary spectrum. The Institute seeks to catalyse new thinking on major annual themes by bringing together leading international academics as well as writers, artists and practitioners. The theme for 2017/18 is Structure, interpreted in its broadest sense - scientifically, symbolically, legally, philosophically, literarily, politically, economically, and sociologically. Applications are now invited for up to 20 three-month fellowships (October-December 2017 and January-March 2018), linked to the annual theme. Applicants may be from any academic discipline or professional background involving research, and they may come from anywhere in the world. IAS Fellowships include an honorarium, and funds for travel, accommodation, subsistence and costs associated with replacement teaching or loss of salary (where appropriate).

Informal enquiries with the Directors of the Institute can be made via Linda Crowe, the IAS administrator (Tel: +44 (0) 191 3344686 or email linda.crowe@durham.ac.uk).

Eligible applicants will be partly funded by the European Union, through the Durham International Fellowships for Research and Enterprise (DIFeREns).
