  Department of Sociological Studies Visiting International Fellowship Scheme

  The Department of Sociological Studies welcomes applications for its Visiting International Fellowship Scheme. The scheme is open to academics worldwide who are able to demonstrate how they will contribute to fostering the development of international sociological research relations in the Department.

  The fellowship will be offered for visits between 4 and 6 weeks per year and applicants may request funding for up to £2,500 to support their travel and subsistence expenses for the duration of the visit.

  Aim of the scheme

  The scheme aims to:

  1.Develop the Department’s international profile and reputation;

  2.Build the Department’s international networks and collaborative partnerships;

  3.Create potential for reciprocal visiting schemes;

  Deliver expertise, a new resource and input to the wider Department;

  4.Increase the visibility of international collaborations within the Department, and encourage future collaborations with academic staff and post graduate research students.

  Call details and expectations of the Fellow

  The Department holds one annual call for Visiting International Fellowships. Calls are announced in February/March each year with a Spring deadline. If successful, Fellows will be expected to commence their visit the following academic year and they must have completed it by the end of the academic year in question.

  In addition to the proposed programme of work, Fellows will be expected to contribute to the research environment of the Department by giving one or two seminar presentations. They will also be asked to deliver a research methods masterclass with postgraduate students and to work with members of the Department to develop funded collaborative proposals or research development/exchange activities. Fellows will also be asked to document their work and achievements via a report, blog activity or by other means deemed appropriate.

  Funding available

  Fellows can request funds of up to £2,500 – this is mainly envisaged to support travel costs but also to make a contribution to accommodation costs for their visit. All requests for funding must be fully costed and justified in the application form. Please note that costs need to be justified.

  Please note that although the scheme offers up to £2,500, it does not offer a payment of £2,500 for a fellowship. All anticipated costs for the fellowship need to be fully justified and should be based on realistic travel and accommodation costs. Fellows will be reimbursed for their expenses upon submission of their receipts. Further details on how to claim expenses will be sent to the successful applicant.

  NB: The Department maintains the right to withhold payment of expenses should the Fellow fail to fulfil their proposed programme of work.

  As a guide, we recommend applicants take note of the current University per diem rates for subsistence and accommodation. These are as follows:

  1.Subsistence: £15.40 per diem.

  2.Accommodation: Current availability and rates for University accommodation are available

  Assessment criteria

  1.The track record of the scholar;

  2.Fit with the current areas of research expertise within the Department;

  3.The proposed programme of work.
