Carlyle Fund

The Committee for the Carlyle Fund offers one research scholarship in the history of political thought (post-Classical), broadly defined, tenable from October 2000 for up to four years. The scholarship will include maintenance at the current level of British Academy/ESRC awards, all university and college fees at the Home/EU rate, and a book grant of £400 per annum. The scholar must be a registered research student of the University or have applied for admission in October 2000. The scholarship will be awarded for one year in the first instance; awards for subsequent years will be subject to annual review by the committee. The scholar will be required to apply for a British Academy/ESRC award in the normal way prior to taking up the scholarship, and (if initially unsuccessful) to reapply in subsequent years.

Applications should be addressed to Charles Shaw, Secretary to the Carlyle Committee, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, and should include a curriculum vitae together with a statement of research interests and the names and addresses of a supervisor and one other person. Applications should reach him by 14 April. Candidates should arrange for their referees to send letters of reference to Mr Shaw by the same date. Short-listed candidates will be asked to submit written work by 12 May.
