Long Term Research Fellowships in Cultural and Intellectual History

University of London - School of Advanced Study

The Warburg Institute is renowned across the world for the interdisciplinary study of cultural and intellectual history, particularly the role of images in culture. It is dedicated to research on the history of ideas, the dissemination and transformations of texts, ideas and images in society, and the relationship between images, art and their texts and subtexts. Its work is historical, philological and anthropological. The Institute houses a research Library of international importance, a photographic collection organised according to a unique iconographic classification system, and the archive of Aby Warburg, which also holds the papers of other major thinkers of the 20th century who were connected to the Institute. Situated in the heart of Bloomsbury, the Institute is a stone’s throw from the British Library, the British Museum, the Wellcome Institute and the National Gallery, providing students with access to a wealth of academic and cultural resources.

The Institute is offering a number of Frances A. Yates Fellowships of nine months for the academic year 2018-19.  Typically the Fellowships will be awarded from 1 October 2018 to 30 June 2019. 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 Yates herself made such distinguished contributions.


The Fellowships will be awarded to postdoctoral applicants who have recently completed their doctorate. Full eligibility criteria are detailed via the link given below.

Value of Long-term Fellowship

The starting salary of the Fellowship is expected to be £30,512 pro rata for nine months including London Allowance (value as at 1.8.2017 – small increase due in August 2018).

How to apply

The application deadline is midnight on Friday, 24 November 2017
