The Slater Fellowship is provided by University College and offers the post holder full board and accommodation for one University term, membership of University College’s Senior Common Room, and £200 towards travel expenses.

During tenure, fellows are expected to engage in academic work within their subject, to participate fully in the life of the College and the Institute, and to deliver a public lecture or seminar hosted within College and organised jointly with IMEMS. Both the College and IMEMS must be acknowledged in any resulting output form the Fellowship.

Fellows will be entitled to full use of Durham University's Library collections, including the archives and special collections held at Palace Green Library. They will also be able to access the Durham Cathedral Library and Ushaw College Library collections as well as others in the area (subject to availability). Limited workspace may be available at IMEMS on request.

To be eligible for the post, applicants must hold a senior position at another University and have research interests that fall within the scope of IMEMS.
