HRC Internal Fellowships 2022
HRC Internal Fellowships are co-sponsored with CASS Research Schools to provide one semester of research-only time and sessional support to cover teaching responsibilities.
Up to two fellowships per year will be awarded to staff from the RSHA (one) and RSSS (one) to complete a book manuscript, substantial journal article(s), or equivalent non-traditional research output. Early and mid-career researchers are encouraged to apply.
In 2022, these fellowships will both be offered in semester 2.
The main criteria for selection will be research excellence and the quality of the academic venue. In the case of monographs, preference will be given to scholars with a contract or commitment from a reputable academic publisher. Potential applicants are strongly recommended to discuss their proposal with their Head of School or the Director of the RSHA or RSSS.
Successful applicants must be located in the HRC in the Sir Roland Wilson Building for the duration of their fellowship, with time away for research and/or conference attendance not to exceed four weeks during the entire fellowship.
Internal fellows are expected actively to participate in the life of the HRC, attending regular events and the weekly seminar series, and are required to present a seminar on their research topic in the HRC Seminar Series.
At the end of the fellowship, the RSHA Internal Fellow may be invited to continue their affiliation with the HRC as an Associate Research Fellow, renewable on an annual basis for a total period of up to three years. Renewal will be evaluated on the basis of a continued demonstrated engagement with, active participation in, and promotion of the HRC’s programs and events.
