Visiting Research Fellowships on the Arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas
The Sainsbury Research Unit offers two Visiting Research Fellowships in each academic year for the study of the arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. Normal duration is three months, coinciding with Autumn and Spring terms. Applications are welcomed from scholars of appropriate standing in such fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences as Anthropology, Art History, Archaeology, History and related disciplines.
Holders of a doctorate (or appropriate final degree) who are undertaking research for publication on the arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. In exceptional cases, advanced doctoral candidates may be considered.
The fellowship stipend is approximately £396 sterling per week for 12 weeks, plus return travel costs from home to Norwich, up to a maximum of £750.
The main responsibility of Fellows is to conduct research for publication. Fellows are expected to give at least two presentations (lectures or seminars) during the fellowship period. Fellowships are normally tenable during the Autumn (September - December) and Spring (January – April) periods. The fellow must reside in Norwich during the fellowship period except for brief research trips.
The fellow is provided with an office in the Sainsbury Centre, equipped with a University networked PC and printing facilities. The fellow will also have full access to the Robert Sainsbury Library (a specialised anthropology/art history/archaeology research library of over 20,000 volumes), as well as other University facilities such as the main library (a general university collection of approximately 750,000 books and over 2,000 journal titles) and the Sports Centre. There is easy access by rail to London and Cambridge.
