Terms and conditions
A Fellowship includes accommodation and full-board during term time only – any dates outside of this may incur additional costs to the Fellow. It does not include any travel or other expenses. Fellows will normally have other means of support via their host Department, or otherwise. Fellowships are usually offered on an unaccompanied basis only; it is not normally possible for facilities or accommodation to be provided for partners or families.
Fellows are expected to take a full part in the life of the College for the period of their residence. This normally includes taking meals at High Table, and making appropriate use of the Senior Common Room. It is customary for new Fellows to meet with the Master on arrival, and to be entertained to a special Fellows Lunch early on in the term.
Fellowship applications are dealt with jointly by the Master of Grey College and the appropriate University Department. A CV (with photograph) is required from each Fellow, together with copies of one or two most significant publications. Applicants are also required to state why they wish to hold the Fellowship, and to indicate the benefits that their tenure of the Fellowship may bring to them.
Each Fellow will be expected to give a short public lecture/presentation to Members of the College at the end of their stay. This should explain, to a non-technical audience, the subject matter of their research. This talk will be advertised and is customarily accompanied by light refreshments for guests. Each Fellow will also be required to provide a brief report on their visit, outlining the work that has been accomplished during their period at Durham.
Special arrangements may have to be put in place to provide alternative accommodation if Fellowships change over at a time when servicing of a flat cannot take place. The Bursar should be consulted if that is the case.
