Visiting fellowship scheme
What is the Visiting Fellowship Scheme?
The Sussex Centre for Intellectual History welcomes Visiting Fellows each year. The purpose of appointing Visiting Fellows is to contribute to the intellectual life of the Centre. The holders of these Fellowships are open to all scholars who wish to spend time at the Centre, or establish stronger links with its members. There is no deadline for applications to be a Visiting Fellow, and Fellowships can run for any length of time between two weeks and three years. Applicants should contact Professor Richard Whatmore, who will then liaise with you on the completion of the Visiting fellowship application form [DOC 45.50KB] and the Fees and workspace application form [DOC 50.00KB].
Visiting Fellows should agree in advance with the Centre about what is expected from the Fellowship. These would normally include one or more of the following:
- Giving seminars to faculty and students or Guest Lectures within an undergraduate or postgraduate course
- Production of a working paper or equivalent
- Giving advice to, or engaging in knowledge exchange with students, faculty and research staff
- Production of a collaborative research proposal with a member of faculty
What can SCIH offer Visiting Fellows?
SCIH, and the School of History, Art History and Philosophy more broadly, can offer the Fellows a vibrant, interdisciplinary context within which to undertake their planned programme of study or activities. In each term, the School hosts a variety of research events including open papers and lectures by external and internal academics, workshops and lunchtime seminars. Fellows will be appointed to a sponsor who can facilitate their integration into the life of the Centre and of the School.
Fellowships will include use of the library, email, stationery and postal facilities. Depending on individual requirement and School availability, they may also include access to office space and a PC. The School and University's infrastructure and environment can support the Fellow's research activity.
What are the fees associated with Visiting Fellowships?
Visiting Fellowships incur a fee to cover costs of administration and allocated resources, although this is subject to variation depending on funding available to the applicant, and the perceived contribution the applicant can make to the Centre's academic life. Concerning the fees please refer to the document above and/or contact the directors of SCIH.
