Launched in October 2006 to mark the 175th anniversary of the foundation of the University, the IAS is Durham University’s leading research institute.
Its aim is to foster creative interdisciplinary thinking – and to communicate this to public audiences – through dialogue and collaboration across disciplinary boundaries. The Institute seeks to catalyse new ideas by bringing together internationally recognised academics as well as writers, artists and practitioners.
At its core lies a generously funded UK and international Fellowship programme which allows the IAS to invite scholars from the full spectrum of the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities to address research themes of global significance.
Fellows will contribute to the Institute’s annual theme, which for 2015-16 is Evidence, interpreted in its broadest sense – scientifically, symbolically, legally, philosophically, literarily, politically, economically, and sociologically.
An IAS fellowship provides the holder with the space and time to develop their research and ideas in a thriving academic community of scholars of national and international standing. Fellows will engage and forge strong links with at least one department at Durham, and be given the opportunity to deliver papers at events organised to coincide with the annual theme.
Fellowships are offered for a three-month period and the IAS supports up to 10 fellowships per semester. The first semester covers the period October to December 2015, the second semester covers the period January to March 2016.
Full details and information about the scheme can be located here:

The theme for 2015/16, for which applications are now invited, is Evidence, interpreted in its broadest sense to be of potential interest to those working in a wide range of disciplines. A number of specific sub-themes have already been identified, including:
•Evidence, Policy and Regulation
•Evidence and Representation
•Evidence and Interdisciplinarity
•Evidence and Experience
•Evidence and Spatio-temporality
Fellows will be able to engage in these themes or to propose others that are related to the theme of Evidence.
Fellowships are available for a 3-month period between October 2015 and March 2016. Applications are considered from mid/late career researchers or non-academics who have an established international reputation, have made major contributions to their field, and can provide evidence of research leadership and/or public impact. They are expected to have played a significant role in shaping their discipline or field through their outputs, achievements and indicators of esteem. Applications are also considered from early/mid-career individuals who have a strongly emerging international
reputation and have done notable work in their field. It is expected that the research or professional practice of applicants will complement the 2015/16 annual theme. Up to 20 IAS Fellowships are available.
What the fellowships offer
An IAS Fellowship provides the holder with the opportunity to develop their research and ideas in a thriving community of intellectuals of international standing, within the Institute, through the College system, and by forging strong links with at least one department at the University.
For the duration of their stay, all Fellows will be provided with a single occupancy office in Cosin’s Hall, the home of the Institute of Advanced Study. The Hall, a magnificent listed building dedicated to the IAS and elegantly refurbished, is situated on a World Heritage site that includes Durham Cathedral and Durham Castle. In addition, all Fellows will be
welcomed into a college community where they will be offered half-board accommodation (in a one or two bedroom flat), and membership of the College’s Senior Common Room.
The IAS will cover the costs associated with the Fellow travelling to Durham, UK from their home institution (return fare – economy class) and will provide all Fellows with an honorarium (£3,000 for three months or pro rata for shorter stays).
Limited funds exist for teaching buy-outs or contributions to loss of income. Academics who will not be on research leave/sabbatical leave whilst taking up a Fellowship in Durham are eligible to apply for teaching buy-out costs of up to £8,000 (for the three month period or pro rata for shorter stays). Alternatively individuals who will experience a loss of income as a result of accepting an IAS Fellowship are eligible to apply for a contribution towards their salary/earnings.
