Apply Now: School of History Emeritus Fellowship

The School of History at the University of St Andrews is initiating an annual ‘Emeritus Fellowship’ for retired academic staff formerly employed by any University or equivalent institution, with the first Fellowship being held in Academic Year 2014-15. The Fellow will be expected to spend 3-6 months of the academic year in St Andrews and to participate in the research activities of the School, including giving a paper to the appropriate Research Seminar and having contact with postgraduate students in the appointee’s field.

The Fellowship will be worth £3000 for use towards accommodation, travel, and research.  The Fellow will also receive full Library and IT access and secretarial support. It is hoped but cannot be guaranteed that the Fellow will receive office accommodation.

Applications should consist of a CV (maximum 4 pages), a statement of research to be undertaken during the Fellowship (maximum 1 page), and the name of two referees who may be contacted. These should be emailed to the Head of History (currently Professor John Hudson) at hhis@st-andrews.ac.uk by 15 June 2014.
