UCL Special Collections Visiting Fellowship

1 November 2018

University College London is pleased to invite applications for a Special Collections Visiting Fellowship.

Items from UCL Special Collections

The Fellowship offers an opportunity to visit UCL to conduct research on a topic centred on the Special Collections holdings. The Fellowship is open to researchers external to UCL in any discipline at all levels from PhD onwards.

UCL Special Collections holds one of the foremost university collections of manuscripts, archives and rare books in the UK. They include fine collections of medieval manuscripts and early printed books as well as highly important 19th and 20th century collections of personal papers, archival material, and literature, covering a vast range of subject areas.

The successful candidate will spend up to six weeks, or the part-time equivalent, at UCL researching the collections. The Visiting Fellow will receive a grant of £3,500 to cover travel, accommodation and living expenses. The Fellowship must be taken up between July and December 2019.

The deadline for applications is 10am on 1 February 2019.
