Institute of Advance Study – Fellowship programme

The Institute (IAS) is Durham’s flagship interdisciplinary research Institute, and aims to foster creative interdisciplinary debate and collaboration across the entire disciplinary spectrum. We seek to develop and drive forward new thinking by bringing together leading international academics as well as writers, artists and practitioners through the Fellowship programme, which is focussed each year on a very specific but broad theme.  This year for example, we are considering Evidence and next year it will be Scale.  Our Fellowship recruitment process will open in mid-April to recruit the 2017/18 Fellowship related to the theme of Structure.  Our themes do have broad appeal across the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences and Science, and our Fellows come from across the world.
