HARC Fellowships 2012-13
Subject to budgetary confirmation, HARC, the Humanities and Arts Research Centre at Royal Holloway University of London, is seeking to appoint up to two HARC Fellows for 2012-13 from inside the College.
HARC Fellowships are open to all FTE staff in the College, but may be of particular interest to those intending to apply for the new AHRC Fellowships scheme, in which applicants have to demonstrate prior institutional support. However, an AHRC application does not have to be directly consecutive upon the tenure of a HARC Fellowship.
HARC expects to support ambitious, interdisciplinary projects that engage the imagination and touch upon salient intellectual, civic, and public issues. The closing date for applications is Monday 9 January 2012. The outcome will be announced by Reading Week of Term 2.
Please submit all applications/nominations to Sue Geddes, HARC Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For all enquiries please contact John O’Brien, Director of HARC (j.o’email@example.com).
The Fellowships will provide each successful applicant with funding which may be applied towards the pursuit of research in various ways, for example teaching buyout, funding and organizing of research events, conferences, so as to allow the Fellow(s) to pursue her/his research in any field associated with the humanities. Research must be of an interdisciplinary nature.
HARC Fellow(s) typically organize speaker or other events dealing with their chosen topic, with the participation of internal or external contributors, at any level.
The format and frequency of activities developed by the HARC Fellow(s) are open, but these may include, e.g., seminars, mini-conferences, workships, series of talks, etc. HARC will typically provide some further support for such events, including, for example, funding for UK travel and subsistence. HARC will be please to cooperate with other College Research Centres, Departments, etc.
Applications should include a 400-500 word description of the proposed project (including possible events and a brief description of interdisciplinary content) and a short CV. Please indicate whether you are applying for a one-term or two-term Fellowship. Applicants applying for a two-term Fellowship may wish to indicate if a one-term Fellowship is also appropriate, and to consult with their Heads of Department to ensure coordination with Departmental plans.
