COFUND Junior Research Fellows

This is an archived page. Kept as a record until the formal end of the COFUND contract. This Fellowship is permanently closed for recruitment. Visitors interested in early career fellowships should visit the Durham University Vacancies Site or the Addison Wheeler Fellowship page. Information about other Senior Fellowships can be found on the IAS Fellowships page.

Between 2011 and 2019 this scheme, COFUNDed between Durham University and the European Union, has gathered scholars, researchers, policy makers or practitioners from around the world and across the full spectrum of science, social science, arts and humanities to address themes of global significance in collaboration with Durham's Research Institutes and researchers. Each year in the region of 21 Junior Research Fellowships were awarded, with JRFs pursuing new research ideas of their own design, normally for 2 years.

Overview details of former COFUND Junior Research Fellows (arranged by academic year) can be found below. The Former Fellows page provides a description of each Fellows' reseach project and can be searched alphabetically.
