Durham University’s Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies and University College are delighted to welcome applications from senior academics at other Universities for the 2017-18 Slater Fellowship.
The Slater Fellowship is designed to enable the postholder to carry out research in Durham for a period of one term, during which time fellows are offered full board and accommodation at University College, with up to £200 available towards travel expenses.
Applicants should submit a CV and a brief summary of what they propose to work on during their time at Durham (maximum one side of A4). They must demonstrate how their proposed research complements or ties in with existing IMEMS research strands, or the research of individual members of the Institute.
Proposals for projects involving Durham staff or postgraduate students and those which are interdisciplinary in nature are particularly welcome. Proposals for research using primary source material in the collections held in Palace Green Library, Durham Cathedral Library and Ushaw College Library are also encouraged.
Applications should be submitted no later than Saturday 4th March 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org and candidates will be notified of the outcome in early April 2017.
When applying, please indicate your availability during the academic year 2017/18, noting that the timing of the Fellowship is variable depending on the availability of accommodation.
For 2017/18 it is likely that the Fellowship will be for Michaelmas term (09 October – 15 December 2017). Some flexibility may be possible, but applicants should ideally be available during these dates.
