Employment: Long-term Research Fellowships, Warburg Institute

Closing date: 2nd December 2016

LONG-TERM RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS IN CULTURAL AND INTELLECTUAL HISTORY
University of London – School of Advanced Study – Fellowships section

 

The Warburg Institute is the premier institute in the world for the study of cultural history and the role of images in culture. It is cross-disciplinary and global. It is concerned with the histories of art and science, and their relationship with superstition, magic, and popular beliefs. Its researches are historical, philological and anthropological. It is dedicated to the study of the survival and transmission of cultural forms – whether in literature, art, music or science – across borders and from the earliest times to the present. In setting out the historical, psychological, anthropological and political dimensions of art and culture, the work of Aby Warburg underlines the continuing relevance of the humanities today.

The Institute is offering a number of Frances A. Yates Fellowships for the academic year 2017-18.  Typically the Fellowships will be awarded from 1 October 2017 to 31 July 2018. 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 encyclopedia of knowledge to which Dame Frances herself made such distinguished contributions.

Eligibility

The Fellowships are generally intended for scholars in the early stages of their careers. Candidates may be pre- or postdoctoral but 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 2011. If their doctorate was awarded before this date, candidates must make a clear case in their application for any modification of this general rule.

Value of Long-term Fellowship

The starting salary of the Fellowship is expected to be £28,954 pro rata for nine months cluding London Allowance (value as at 1.8.2016 – small increase due in August 2017).

How to apply

To apply for this role, applications must be made using the application form which can be downloaded by clicking the button below. Applications must be completed in English and uploaded by the position deadline which is Friday 2 December 2016. 

The application form asks you to provide the following:

1. The names and addresses of two people who have agreed to write a reference in support of your application. We prefer to receive references in English but if necessary will accept references only in French, Italian, Spanish or German. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ask his/her two referees to supply letters of reference, and it is strongly advised that referees are contacted well in advance. References must be emailed by your referees as Word or PDF document attachments (on headed paper, signed and scanned) direct to ulrecruit@london.ac.uk and the applicant’s surname must appear in the subject line of the email. The deadline for references to be received at ulrecruit@london.ac.uk is midnight (GMT) on Friday, 2 December 2016. 

2. An outline of proposed research (of not more than 800 words) and the title of your research project. You should explain how your research project would benefit from being carried out at the Warburg Institute and from having access to the Institute’s resources. The project must be achievable within the Fellowship period.

3. A curriculum vitae giving full details of name, date of birth, address (including e-mail address), present occupation, school and university education, degrees, teaching and research experience, publications. Please ensure that you include the start and end dates for all positions/scholarships/study periods/funding etc held.
