The IAS welcomes its 2023 Epiphany cohort of Fellows, as well as the start of two new major projects, and a series of research development projects this term.
The Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) is a home for growing big ideas. We support a broad and inclusive interdisciplinary community from across the full spectrum of Durham academics, where different perspectives are brought together to develop creative approaches to interesting and important problems. We are delighted to announce the launch of our call for Major Projects – an investment of ca. £40,000 - £61,000 per project in major interdisciplinary research ideas across the University.
Durham University, under the auspices of the IAS, invites applications for three Addison Wheeler Fellowships, 36-month postdoctoral positions commencing on 1 October 2023. This scheme is intended to provide early career researchers of outstanding promise with an opportunity to complete a major project. It is open to scholars from any discipline and of any nationality.
The IAS remains keen to support research conversations, workshops, and network building which have the potential to develop into major projects in the future. Colleagues are invited to apply for small scale funding to help the early stage development of ambitious interdisciplinary projects.
The IAS is delighted to confirm that applications for Fellowships in 2023/24 are now being accepted. Closing date GMT midday Friday 17 June 2022.
