2020/21 Fellowship Opportunity at Durham University's IAS
Recruitment for the 2020/21 Fellowship is now open and will close Friday 7 June.
Each year, the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) supports four ambitious interdisciplinary projects tackling major research questions. It is advantageous if the interests and proposed activities of applicants complement the 2020/21 research projects sponsored by the IAS. Applicants can therefore apply to join a project team during the Fellowship period (see pro forma at the end). However, fellowship applicants can also apply to join Durham colleagues in other collaborative projects, to develop ground-breaking ideas, explore interdisciplinary synergies and develop new programmes of research. It is a condition of the Fellowship that a research collaboration is undertaken.
Visit the Durham University website for details on how to apply.
