Fellowship Applications Accepted

Thursday 8 February 2018

Fellowship applications are currently accepted for Visiting Research Fellowships, Postdoctoral Research Fellowships, and Research Fellowships. 

Fellows contribute to the extensive network of specialist seminars, events and conferences, and help host and develop funded research projects. The Institute encourages its Fellows to engage in interdisciplinary work with colleagues in other Institutes across the School. We are also particularly interested in establishing and sustaining research relationships with English departments across the UK. The Institute and the School are hospitable to international scholars wishing to pursue their research in London or develop research projects with IES staff and existing Fellows.

Fellowship applications are invited from 1 February - 1 March each year. Appointments will be made by a committee drawn from the Institute’s external Advisory Council, chaired by Professor Dinah Birch of the University of Liverpool, as well as senior IES staff and Fellows. Candidates will be notified of the outcome of their application by the end of March. All Fellows will be required to produce a short annual report of their activities as they contribute to research in English and the work of the IES. Fellowships are non-stipendiary. Applications include an application form, a cover letter, a CV, and two letters of reference.
