The Institute aims to build research capacity, realise potential, and meet the challenges of a changing world by bringing together world leading scholars and practitioners from all disciplines to work with Durham colleagues on collaborative projects of major intellectual, scientific, political and practical si
Up to 20, three-month fellowships are available (October-December and January-March) each year. Applicants may be from any academic discipline or professional background involving research, and they may come from anywhere in the world (though preference is given to International applicants). IAS Fellowships include an honorarium, funds for travel, accommodation, and costs associated with replacement teaching or loss of salary (where appropriate).
Durham offers Fellows time and freedom to think, away from the demands of their everyday professional lives. By recruiting Fellows from all around the world, the IAS also fosters an exciting intellectual environment in which thinkers from diverse cultural and disciplinary backgrounds can exchange ideas. Fellows will engage and forge strong links with at least one department at Durham, and are given the opportunity to deliver papers in many different settings.
What the Fellowships offer:
- An IAS Fellowship provides recipients with the opportunity to develop their ideas and collaborations in a thriving community of researchers, and through engagement with the University’s Departments and Colleges.
- For the duration of their stay, all Fellows will be provided office space (single or multiple occupancy). In addition, all Fellows will be welcomed into a Durham College where they will be offered accommodation (in a one bedroom flat, or similar), and membership of the College’s Senior Common Room.
- The IAS will cover the costs associated with the Fellow travelling to Durham from their home institution (one return fare – economy class), and will provide all Fellows with an honorarium (£3,000 for three months).
- Limited funds exist for teaching buy-outs or contribution to loss of income. Academics who will not be on research leave/sabbatical leave whilst taking up a Fellowship in Durham are eligible to apply for teaching buy-out costs of up to £8,000 (for the three month period or pro rata for shorter stays). Alternatively, individuals who will experience a loss of income as a result of accepting an IAS Fellowship are eligible to apply for a contribution towards their salary/earnings of the same amount (up to £8,000).
