IAS Visiting Research Fellows

Through our various early career schemes and training programmes, the IAS has always supported the development of the next-generation of research leaders. This fellowship provides a way for outstanding postdoctoral researchers to visit Warwick and establish connections with academics and departments with the aim of developing an application for an externally funded research fellowship. The fellowship will last beyond the period of the visit to allow longer collaboration on the development of the application and preliminary research to support it.

  • Prestigious 6 month Fellowship
  • Title “IAS Visiting Research Fellow”
  • One visit to Warwick of up to 2 weeks
  • Travel costs of up to £1000
  • Accommodation in IAS facilities & per diem when based at Warwick
