Visiting Fellows

Individuals selected for the conferral of the title of Visiting Fellow will be academic researchers and scholars who may or may not be affiliated to a university or similar centre of Higher Education. 

Visiting Fellows will normally hold a PhD qualification and will be active scholars publishing in a field of intellectual endeavour associated with the work and intellectual resources of the Warburg Institute.  Fellows in this category will be expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the Institute in a measureable way. Fellowships may be stipendiary (from an external source) and will be space entitling.

Candidates may be nominated for the award of the title of Visiting Fellow of the Warburg Institute at any time by a member of the academic staff of the Institute or may submit an application for the award.  Candidates are asked to provide:

  • a curriculum vitae and list of publications
  • an outline of the proposed area of study or project to be carried out at the Warburg
  • a statement about what contribution the candidate would hope to make to the intellectual life of the Institute

Applications will be considered by a panel comprising the Director of the Institute and two other members of the academic staff of the Institute selected by the Director on the basis of their familiarity with the academic field in which the candidate demonstrates expertise. The panel will make recommendations on the proposed conferral of the title of Visiting Fellow to a meeting of the academic staff of the Institute. Appointments will be made for a fixed term which will be variable and which will not extend beyond two years. Appointments are not normally renewable.
