Knowledge Exchange Fellowship 2018-2019

Proposals are sought from Oxford researchers to facilitate new, or develop existing, relationships with external partners that further the reach and significance of research in all humanities disciplines at Oxford. The range of possible knowledge exchange activities and partners is deliberately broad; it is up to the applicant to make the case that what is proposed enhances their research, benefits the external partner(s), and has the potential to continue after the end of the Fellowship. All previous fellows have project descriptions on the TORCH website.

Up to £10k is available to support each fellow. This may include buyout of up to one-term of either teaching taken as one-term or pro rata across the year 2018-2019, and/or hourly paid research or teaching assistance, and/or similar justified project expenses up to total of £10k. An early-career option is also available for those who submitted their thesis no more than five years prior to 31 July 2018. The early-career fellowship will award a one-day a week staff contract at grade 7.1 (pro rata) plus £2000 project expenses.

Applicants must have the support of their faculty AND in the case of early-career applicants agreement from their line-manager or Senior Tutor to be released from their current post to undertake the fellowship.

Please note the number of fellowships available for award will depend on a current review of HEIF funding priorities.
