The University Of Edinburgh UK
DESCRIPTIONThe Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Edinburgh calls application for 2020 IASH-CTPI Duncan Forrester Fellowship in the United Kingdom. The institute provides a number of innovative research and public engagement activities across the arts, humanities and social sciences through a range of interdisciplinary and international projects and programs.
IASH hosts a lively scholarly community of visiting fellows. It is a supportive environment for postdoctoral researchers, while also offering networking opportunities with successful mid-career and eminent senior scholars. The Institute occupies a historic building with private courtyard and leafy views – perfect for uninterrupted thinking, reading, and writing. Furthermore, there is also plenty of opportunities to socialize and share ideas.
This fellowship is basically for researchers working in any of the research areas of the Centre for Theology and Public Issues (CTPI). Moreover, the applicant’s project must relate broadly to public theology, in relation to areas such as peacebuilding and the arts; theology, politics, and migration; theology and environmental ethics; and theology, law, and justice.
In particular, a 2020-2021 IASH-CTPI Duncan Forrester Fellowship program offers the following things to its fellows
Research visit at the University of Edinburgh for three to ten months.
A bursary of up to a maximum of £13,000.
Dedicated office space, University e-mail and library access.
An allocated University mentor from the Centre for Theology and Public Issues or another area relevant to the Fellows’ research interests.
Weekly Fellows’ Lunch to build community and also a collegial work-in-progress seminar series for testing new ideas.
Calendar of engaging events at the Institute and College.
Furthermore, opportunities to participate in and design funded workshops, colloquia, etc. at the Institute.
The institute welcomes the candidates within and beyond the University of Edinburgh. Applicants must have been awarded a doctorate at the time of application (meaning they must have submitted a final version of your thesis with all necessary corrections, and have received a letter of completion – they do not need to have graduated), and normally within the last seven years. Candidates must be able to produce a transcript, testamur, or a letter of completion/eligibility to graduate as part of your application.
