The Centre for Nineteenth Century Studies

The Durham University Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies is a locus for research in all aspects of the long nineteenth century (from 1760s to present-day neo Victorianism), drawing from the widest possible range of disciplines and interdisciplinary approaches. The Centre aims to generate new research and collaborative opportunities across the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences and Sciences, bridging Durham University and regional, national and international research networks and organizations.

Newton International Fellowships Internal Process 2019

The Royal Society has now opened the scheme and for the faculty stage we ask applicants to draft their application on the formal application and download (do not submit) a copy of the application in pdf formal for review with all the sections completed .

You will need to be nominated through an academic department which CNCS can help you with finding the appropriate/best fit and you will have a mentor within this department please see the attached scheme notes. Fellowship Scheme Notes

The fellowships allow the University to host an international early career scholar (non UK citizen within 7 years of PhD) for two years, with the requirement that 'Applicants must have a clearly defined and mutually beneficial research proposal agreed with a UK host researcher'. These fellowships provide a stipend of £24,000 p.a., generous research costs, and relocation -- if you are aware of a suitable candidate, please do strongly consider asking them to apply. The University is required to match fund the fellowships so the number of applications will be monitored and no more than 2 are expected per department with an optional additional application if it is an interdisciplinary project and has the support of a named research Centre.

The deadline for applications has now passed. The panel is expected to meet later that week and the funder deadline is expected to be mid/late March 2019.

Any queires, please contact either Anna Hutchinson or Louise Jones
