IASH-SSPS Visiting Research Fellowships in Edinburgh

IASH-SSPS Visiting Research Fellowships in Edinburgh

The IASH-SSPS Research Fellowships are intended to encourage outstanding interdisciplinary research, international scholarly collaboration, and networking activities of visiting Research Fellows together with academics in the School of Social and Political Science (SSPS). Fellows will be expected to work in collaboration with one or more members of SSPS academic staff, and to take an active part in IASH interdisciplinary events. We would particularly welcome applications linked to the themes of the Institute Project on Decoloniality (IPD'24) taking place at IASH from 2021 to 2024. This project invites scholars from around the world to visit Edinburgh and conduct research on the theme of decoloniality, broadly understood.

The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities is housed in a 19th-century courtyard close to the University Library and about 30 scholars are in residence at any time. Fellows are allocated a private office in the Institute with all the usual research facilities. During the course of their stay in Edinburgh, IASH-SSPS Research Fellows will be expected to make two seminar presentations on their research – one at IASH and one in SSPS – and to take part in IASH work-in-progress sessions and relevant workshops and seminars in SSPS.

Expected outcomes from Research Fellowships will be joint publications, and/or joint applications for research funding, and/or a collaborative research seminar series or workshop event involving their SSPS academic partner. Funds are available in support of travel and accommodation costs at between £1,300 and £3,900.
