The EHU Nineteen Fellowship has been created by Edge Hill University’s EHU Nineteen Research Centre to support new research in nineteenth-century studies. Its primary purpose is to enable the appointed Fellow to continue with an affiliation and remain part of the academic community, and to create a platform for an ECR researcher to promote their work and build their profile.
The fellowship will provide a bursary of up to £700 to support the cost of research for a project on any aspect of nineteenth-century studies. We are particularly keen to support innovative interdisciplinary projects which fit within the broad research specialism of EHU Nineteen Research Centre.
The appointed Fellow will become a visiting researcher at Edge Hill University and an affiliate member of EHU Nineteen. They will have access to library resources (physical and online) and, if they choose to work on our Ormskirk campus, access to a work station. There is no requirement for the Fellow to live near the host institution.
Other benefits include:
- A mentor from EHU Nineteen who can offer advice on research, careers and impact/public engagement.
- Access to EHU Nineteen events and research community, including Virtual Speaker Series and research networking events.
- The option (if desired) to host a virtual event related to your research for up to 100 attendees and supported by EHU Nineteen.
To be eligible to apply for the EHU Nineteen Fellowship (with bursary), an individual must:
- Have completed a PhD and been awarded the PhD before the fellowship is due to begin.
- Hold no permanent teaching or research post at Edge Hill University or any other HEI.
- Propose a programme of research work in the field of nineteenth-century studies, broadly defined.
