Visiting Fellowships in Commonwealth Studies

Applications are invited for one or two Smuts Visiting Fellowships in Commonwealth Studies in association with a Visiting Fellowship at Wolfson College.

Fellowships are available for research in the field of Commonwealth Studies, including the Commonwealth related aspects of archaeology, anthropology, economics, history, human geography, law, literature, oriental studies, sociology, politics and social psychology.

Fellows will receive a contribution towards their expenses of £20,000* for a nine month stay.

A further sum of up to £6,000 is available towards travel and related costs for a nine month stay.

Applicants should be members of staff of another University or similar institution outside the UK. They should hold a Ph.D. or, if not, be working at a post-doctoral level.

The Managers will give preference to scholars with a distinguished research profile who are nationals or permanent residents of the overseas countries of the Commonwealth and who have active research interests in an area or areas of scholarship falling within the remit of the Smuts Fund as specified above.

The Managers expect that applicants would be intending to come to Cambridge to work on a project building on existing research for which a period of residence in Cambridge is demonstrably appropriate, although they would not rule out the initiation of a new piece of work where there is a realistic expectation that it could be completed by the end of the tenure of the Fellowship.

Applicants should write or send an email to the Secretary, Smuts Memorial Fund, 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ, UK, kfw20[at] for an application package.

The maximum duration of a Fellowship is nine months, beginning in October, but the Managers would be willing to consider applications requiring less time in Cambridge.
