The AfOx Visiting Fellows Programme and the Senior AfOx Visiting Fellows Programme are now accepting applications for their Fellowship Programmes.
The AfOx Visiting Fellows Program is intended to improve academic mobility and network building. It is open to all disciplines and departments across the University, and applications from female and underrepresented researchers are encouraged.
Applicants must provide information about an Oxford university host, which is someone with an academic/research position in Oxford in the applicant’s field of interest who will work with them to make the most of their time in Oxford.
This could be an existing academic collaborator or a new potential collaborator with whom the applicant communicated prior to applying for the Fellowship.
Applications from all academic disciplines are encouraged, as is collaboration with any University of Oxford researcher.
During the Fellowship, AfOx Fellows will be assigned to a Department and a College within the university, and they may apply to work with scholars from any department.
They will also be asked to choose which of the AfOx research themes their project most closely aligns with: Healthy People, Innovation for Prosperity, Integrated Societies, and Green Futures.
The appointed Fellows will be provided with an en-suite, single occupancy study bedroom, as well as all meals in the host college. For the duration of the residency, a temporary university card and membership in the college senior common room will be provided. In addition, the fellowship will cover airfare, a visa fee, and a maintenance allowance for incidental expenses.
The fellowships will last eight weeks. Start dates outside of this time frame will be considered in exceptional circumstances. Applicants should be aware that their applications will be reviewed in part based on the work they intend to complete within the timeframe specified.
