Research Fellowships in Cultural and Intellectual History – long term,
The Warburg Institute,
University of London.
The Warburg Institute is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of the classical tradition – in the sense of those elements in European thought, art and institutions that have evolved out of the cultures of the ancient world. Its Library and Photographic Collection are designed and arranged to encourage research into the processes by which one culture learns from another and by which different fields of thought and art act on each other. They are particularly concerned with continuities between the ancient Mediterranean civilizations and the cultural and intellectual history of post-classical Europe, especially in the period to c. 1800.
The Institute is offering one long-term Frances A. Yates Fellowship of two or three years tenable from October 2015. Fellows’ interests may lie in any aspect of cultural and intellectual history but, other things being equal, preference will be given to those whose work is concerned with those areas of the medieval and Renaissance encyclopaedia of knowledge to which Dame Frances herself made distinguished contributions.
The Fellowships are generally intended for scholars in the early stages of their careers. Candidates must have completed at least one year’s research on their doctoral dissertation by the time they submit their application for a Fellowship and, if postdoctoral, must normally have been awarded their doctorate within the preceding five years, i.e. after 1 October 2009. If their doctorate was awarded before this date, they should explain the reasons for any interruption in their academic career in a covering letter.
Value of Long-term Fellowship
The starting salary of the Fellowship is expected to be £ 28,408 p.a including London Allowance.
