New Visiting Fellowships announced for International Researchers and Policymakers

The Institute of Advanced Study has recently announced a new round of visiting fellowships for 2009/2010 and is inviting Warwick staff to nominate international researchers and policy makers for the short-term residencies at the University.

For 2009-10 the IAS will offer up to 30 visiting fellowships: Standard IAS Short Term Visiting Fellowships, Banco Santander IAS Fellows and Strategic International Partner IAS Fellows.

The aim of the IAS Visiting Fellowships is to promote visits by distinguished researchers and policy makers (including representatives of the arts, business, government and industry) which will enrich the research landscape across the disciplines at Warwick and contribute to the University’s international reputation as a centre of research excellence and innovation.

Three Santander Abbey IAS Fellows will be selected from Ibero-American countries in the Santander scheme: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, Venezuela, Spain and Portugal. The fellows will be eminent scholars and/or practitioners (including diplomats, business leaders and civil society actors).

The Strategic International Partner Fellowships are designed to create opportunities for staff to develop collaborative research projects with researchers at a select list of international universities with which Warwick has established (or is contemplating) memoranda of understanding for research engagement.  These institutions are: Boston University (US), Jawaharlal Nehru University (India), Monash University (Australia), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and University of California, Irvine (USA).

The Visiting Fellows from all of these schemes will be expected to contribute to or lead activities which enhance the research programmes, strategies and international profiles of research groups, research centres, departments, schools or faculties which are wider than the individual nominating staff member’s research project.

In addition, successful applications will, minimally, include one research and/or training event geared toward early career (PhD or recent postdoctoral) scholars at Warwick and one public event (such as a lecture, performance, installation, seminar, workshop, conference, symposium, etc) aimed at an audience beyond the nominator’s and visiting fellow’s immediate field of specialism.
