IAS Early Career Fellowships 

The Early Career Fellowship offers completing Warwick PhD candidates support and training to build an independent academic career.  
Deadline Midday 1 December 2022, with Fellowships commencing April 2023.  


inVISIBLE Research & Diversity Conference

Following the conclusion of the inVISIBLE conference, the Warwick Black Chemistry Society and Institute of Advanced Study would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the amazing presenters who participated at the events. Amongst those presenting were 49 ethnic minority researchers across the university, who shared their research work in different fields. The interdisciplinary nature of the conference was a key highlight not only because it provided our audience with a range of new topics to learn more about, but it also fostered collaborations amongst researchers whose paths don’t often cross.
The conference also featured several champions of diversity and inclusion who inspired us with the work they are doing to address inequality gaps either through education, active advocacy, or provision of resources. Please visit our webpage: to learn more about our speakers and please show your support for their work.

The conference lead Maria Kariuki would also like to thank the IAS for their generous financial and resource contributions without which the conference would not have been possible to organise. Many thanks as well to the Warwick vendors who catered or provided equipment and technical support. Lastly, Maria would like to kindly invite different departments to consider hosting the conference next year in order to continue celebrating diversity at Warwick and in research. 

The IAS was proud to support this conference and would like to congratulate Maria Kariuki  and  Warwick Black Chemistry Society WBCS for conceiving and organising such a successful conference.  

Congratulations and a fond farewell to the October 2021 Early Career Fellow cohort who completing their fellowships this month.  

In October 2021, we funded 13 completing Warwick doctoral candidates in the transition phase between their doctoral and independent postdoctoral research careers on our Early Career Fellowship Scheme.  

Early Career Fellows receive a bursary, training to develop their academic leadership skills and support to produce career enhancing outputs from their thesis. We are delighted to announce that half of this cohort left the scheme early to take on substantive posts in other institutions, including permanent academic positions and prestigious research fellowships.  

We wish all our IAS alumni the very best on their next career steps.

Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal

Coming Soon: Cultural Representations of Nerds (Special Issue) 

Currently our focus is on the preparatory checks for the publication of our fourth special issue of the journal (v9(3)). This issue was developed in partnership with SOAS and the University of Oxford with contributions largely based on a workshop hosted by the IAS in 2021, I am pleased to report all of the manuscripts are now through our reviewing processes and bar a few final tweaks the issue itself is all but ready for publication. Hence, we expect it to reach final publication sometime in mid-late August, which will be a moment of great celebration for the team and contributing authors alike. 


As Editor-in-Chief I’ve also had a number of interesting and productive conversations about potential future special issues over the next three years, about which I hope to be able to share more in the near future. 


Call for Papers: Authentic Interdisciplinarity & Open Call 

A reminder that as part of our tenth anniversary preparations for the October 2023 issue of the journal, that we have launched a very special call for contributions. Hence, if you have got something to say about ideas, conceptions or perceptions of authentic interdisciplinarity then we would love to have you contribute to the issue. You can find details of this call for papers here. 



Exchanges also welcomes submissions throughout the year by scholars in all disciplines, especially from first-time or less experienced authors. Details of this open call for contributions can be found here:  


As with all Exchanges calls, the Editor-in-Chief welcomes discussions with potential authors ahead of submission, although this is not a pre-requisite. 

About the Journal 

Exchanges is dedicated to supporting and propagating research discourse primarily, but not exclusively, from early career scholars around the globe. Framed in an interdisciplinary mode, articles are intended to be read by a broad academic audience.

The journal’s operations are managed by its Editor-in-Chief, Dr Gaz J Johnson, based at the IAS.
