Merton College: Visiting Research Fellowship in the Creative Arts

Merton College, Oxford invites applications for a Visiting Research Fellowship in the Creative Arts.

The principal goal of this new scheme is to create synergies between the creative arts and academia and promote the College as a centre for artistic research and innovation. The holder of the Fellowship, which is open both to early-career and established candidates, will be expected to undertake a sustained period of intensive work in their field while also participating fully in College life and exploring ways to communicate their work to all members of the College community: fellows, staff, students, and alumni.

The College will provide meals and accommodation and a stipend of up to £1870 per month, with additional provision for expenses involving research, travel, and materials up to a maximum of £250 per month. The Stipend will be subject to tax and National Insurance and would be pensionable.
