Academics and better research to be attracted by new IAS Fellowships

The Warwick Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) 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.

The IAS was established in 2007, forming an integral part of the University strategy “Vision 2015”. It is designed to promote collaborative research projects of international calibre and profile operating across the University Departments, Schools and Research Centres as well as engaging with the programmes, performances and exhibitions of the Warwick Arts Centre.

For 2009-10 the IAS will offer up to thirty visiting fellowships, including 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, which include Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, Spain and Portugal.

The fellows will be eminent scholars and 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 involved are Boston University (US), Jawaharlal Nehru University (India), Monash University (Australia), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and University of California, Irvine (USA).

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