Short-Term Research Fellowships, Warburg Institute
The Warburg Institute is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of the classical tradition - in the sense of those elements of European thought, art and institutions that have evolved out of the cultures of the ancient world. Its Library and Photographic Collection are designed and arranged to encourage research into the processes by which one culture learns from another and by which different fields of thought and art act on each other. They are particularly concerned with continuities between ancient Mediterranean civilizations and the cultural and intellectual history of post-classical Europe, especially in the period to c. 1800.
Short-Term Research Fellowships
A number of short-term Fellowships of two, three or four months are offered, to be held at the Institute in the academic year 2011-12.
The Fellowships are generally intended for scholars in the early stages of their careers. Candidates must have completed at least one year's research on their doctoral dissertation by the time they submit their application for a Fellowship and, if postdoctoral, must normally have been awarded their doctorate within the preceding five years, i.e. after 1 October 2005.
The Fellowship does not provide a stipend but gives financial support towards living and subsistence costs in London and towards travel expenses. The values of the Fellowships are: £2,100 for two months, £3,050 for three months, £4,000 for four months.
Further details of the Fellowships and of the method of application should be obtained from the Institute's website: http://warburg.sas.ac.uk
Closing date for receipt of applications: 3 December 2010.
