The University has a dedicated Relocation Manager, Stina Maynard, who is available to offer guidance on moving to Durham. Stina can work alongside fellows, visiting researchers and new staff to provide support with domestic arrangements, accommodation search, area information and useful tips for living in the UK to help them settle into the area as smoothly as possible. Please telephone +44 (0) 191 334 6417 or email for more information.

Fellowships for Durham staff

In addition to inviting external staff in to Durham for short term work, we encourage Durham staff to explore international fellowship and research opportunities in their areas.

The Institute of Advance Study (IAS) welcomes internal applications for their fellowship scheme. Internal applicants must be supported with a letter from their Head of Department.

External fellowship opportunities are often advertised to the International Office for short or long-term placement. More details about the objectives, funding, and length of the placements can be found on the respective websites.
