Application Process

Founded in 2004, the IGRCT (University of Bristol) promotes research in many fields, including history, archaeology, literary studies, art history, and philosophy, and has a particular focus on research that explores the links between ancient and modern. The Institute will host one or two Visiting Fellowships in Aegean Prehistory during the academic year 2018/2019, funded through a generous donation by INSTAP in honour of Professor Peter Warren, on the occasion of his 70th birthday in 2008.

Eligibility: The Visiting Fellowship is open to established scholars (of at least post-doctoral level), who will be working on a project related to the field of Aegean Prehistory as specified in INSTAP’s remit (i.e. from the Neolithic period to 776 BC). The Visiting Fellowship is open to both overseas and UK/EU residents. Recently retired academics are also eligible.

Duration of tenure: The duration is a minimum of 4 and up to a maximum of 8 weeks during term time in a normal academic year (between mid-September and the end of June, but excluding Christmas and Easter Vacations). For dates of the University of Bristol academic year and vacation please consult: http://www.bris.ac.uk/university/dates/

Financial and other arrangements: The Visiting Fellowship carries an honorarium of approximately £4,300, which should also be used towards travel and accommodation expenses. The IGRCT will offer help and advice on travel to and accommodation in Bristol, but related expenses will be met by the appointed candidates through their honorarium. In addition to this honorarium, the appointed candidate will be offered shared office space in the University and will be able to use the University Libraries and other facilities.

Duties of Visiting Fellow: The Visiting Fellows will be expected to engage in the research outlined in their application, and to deliver a lecture or a seminar during their tenure. Visiting Fellows will also be expected to participate in the intellectual activities of the IGRCT and Bristol University in general, and to acknowledge the IGRCT and INSTAP in any publications emerging from their research in Bristol.

Method of application: Candidates should apply by email, with the required enclosures/attachments:

  1. Completed application form
  2. A statement of the research project to be carried out during the Fellowship (maximum of 1,000 words)
  3. A short CV (maximum 8 sides of A4, using a font of 12pt size minimum)

No references are required.

Closing date for applications: 12 noon (UK time), Tuesday April 24, 2018.
