Fellowships and research
The College has a small number of Fellowships available each term. They are mainly intended for academics visiting the University, but the Master is always interested to hear from applicants with other backgrounds. Some of our Fellowships are arranged in conjunction with the University's Institute of Advanced Study.
The College is keen to build up its Fellowships, which assist the University in delivering its Research Agenda. We currently have the following Fellowships:
- Dickinson Dees (Law);
- Winifred Jean Stubbs (Oriental Studies and Theology);
- Sydney Holgate (Any discipline);
- Alan Richards Mathematics Fellowships;
- Best Fellowship in Public Understanding of Science.
Fellows take a full part in College life for the period of their residence. This normally includes meals at High Table, and use of the Senior Common Room.
At the end of their stay, a Fellow gusually gives a public lecture/presentation to Members of the College. They are also expected to write a brief report on their visit, outlining the work that has been accomplished during their period at Durham. You can find full details about Fellowships in the terms and conditions of Fellowships.
You can find a biographical list of Fellows since 2004 and full details of our current fellows on the SCR website.
