Library Fellowships

Durham University - Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies

The Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies at Durham University is delighted to invite applications from postdoctoral researchers for visiting fellowships. Successful applicants will be reimbursed expenses of up to £1,500 per month for up to three months, to go towards travel, accommodation and living expenses during the fellowship.

Applicants should submit a CV and a brief summary of what they propose to work on (maximum one side of A4). Applications should demonstrate a serious research interest that focuses on primary source material within the special collections in Palace Green Library and/or Durham Cathedral, and that falls within the scope of the IMEMS’ research interests.

Applications from those interested on working on the surviving contents of the Durham Cathedral’s medieval priory library are particularly welcome as this collection is currently the focus of a large-scale digitisation project.

Fellows will be encouraged to work collaboratively with curators and other subject specialists to realise the collections’ research potential, and to adopt innovative research methodologies. They will also be encouraged to participate actively within the life of the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies.

Applications should be submitted no later than Sunday 15 January 2017 to Candidates will be notified of the outcome by the end of February 2017.

We aim to be flexible with fellowship dates – applicants should indicate their availability in 2017, and their preferred fellowship duration (i.e. one, two or three months).

Please note that fellows will be expected to arrange their own travel and accommodation.
