IAS Vanguard Fellowships Programme
This programme aims to attract outstanding early and mid-career researchers from global leading institutions, operating at the cutting edge of their disciplines, to work collaboratively with colleagues at the University of Birmingham.
Colleagues will focus on new and existing areas – topics that are timely, relevant, address national and international priorities, and cross disciplinary boundaries.
IAS Vanguard Fellowships and Diversity
Promoting different and new ways of thinking about problems lies at the heart of the IAS mission. Diversity of thought comes in part from diversity of experiences and cultures.
A high proportion of recent nominations for IAS Vanguard Fellowships have been white male candidates. In the coming round, we challenge colleagues to nominate people in the early stages of their independent careers from a more diverse range of backgrounds, and particularly welcome the nomination of women and people from minority ethnic groups as visiting fellows to share knowledge and establish long-term collaborations.
Proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org Please do not provide costings with this proposal – these will be done by IAS.
IAS Vanguard Fellows proposals for the Autumn 2018 cohort have now closed.
We will accept proposals for the Spring 2019 cohort at any time up to the deadline of 3rd December 2018.
