Visiting Research Fellowships 1999–2000

Balliol College invites applications for up to three Visiting Research Fellowships for the academic year 1999–2000, or part thereof, for a duration of at least one term. These fellowships are intended to offer scholars of outstanding distinction or promise from outside the United Kingdom an opportunity to pursue their own research as a member of the college. Fellows will normally be expected to reside in Oxford during terms. They will be entitled to full membership of the senior common room and to take meals in college without charge. There is no stipend attached to these fellowships. Preference will be given to candidates whose work is close to the academic interests of one or more fellows of the college.

Applications, in the form of a letter, should include a statement of proposed research during the fellowship; a full curriculum vitae; and the names and addresses of two academic references. It is the responsibility of applicants to ensure that their references are sent directly to the college by the closing date.

Applications should be sent to the Senior Tutor, Balliol College, Oxford OX1 3BJ, and should reach the college by 22 January 1999. The college hopes to complete the elections by mid-March 1999.

In addition, scholars will receive free meals, and they will be entitled to dine twice a week at high table. The scholars will be entitled to accommodation (for which they will be charged) until they have completed their university residence requirements.

There will also be Jowett Exhibitions, up to the value of £1,000 each for candidates who are runners-up for the Jowett Senior Scholarships. These will be restricted to members of Balliol College.
