Visiting Scholars

We aim to be the home of academic experimentation and freedom, where top-flight researchers are able to explore new territory in a cross-disciplinary direction and interact with visitors in an exciting environment.
The Institute welcome applications for Visiting Fellowships from researchers within a large range of disciplines, such as anthropology, biology, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology and sociology, though motivated applications from any other discipline will be given full consideration. Applications from economists are also encouraged, but successful applicants will have demonstrated an interest in, and a commitment to, at least one of the other non-economics disciplines of IAST.

IAST invites scholars already employed by another research-active institution for visits ranging from 1 month to 1 year, during the next academic year 2018-19. The group is interdisciplinary and international, and scholars are expected to pursue their own research. A completed doctorate or equivalent is required of all applicants.

Fellows receive reimbursement of travel and living expenses and are provided with a shared office. We welcome our visitor during all the year except in July and August (when the majority of our Research Fellows are travelling) and University holidays.

To apply for a visit of 1 month or more, for academic year 2018-19, please send your CV and a project proposal (maximum 2 sides of A4, indicating whether you envisage interactions with resident IAST researchers) to
Applications for shorter periods are welcome at any time but will be subject to availability of places.
