Visiting Fellowships at the Centre for French History and Culture.

The St Andrews Centre for French History and Culture invites applications for a Sabbatical Visiting Fellowship

The Visiting Fellowship is open to any academic across the world in a permanent or tenure-track faculty post with research interests in any period of French history or French colonial history. Prospective applicants who are unsure whether they qualify should email the Director, Dr Guy Rowlands (

Tenure of the Fellowship might particularly suit academics in the later stages of writing up a substantial piece of research. The Fellowship covers the cost of transportation to and from St Andrews from the holder's normal place of work, together with a substantial negotiable subsidy towards accommodation (or a university flat) while the holder is resident in St Andrews. The Fellowship carries with it no teaching duties, though the Fellow is expected to give one of the two biannual seminars and to take part in the normal seminar life of the Centre and the School of History during his or her stay in St Andrews. The Fellow will have full borrowing and e-access rights in the university and departmental libraries.

To apply please send an application consisting of:
(1) a CV (no more than 4 pages)
(2) a list of publications (maximum 2 pages)
(3) a programme of research (no more than 1000 words)
(4) the names and addresses of two referees we might choose to approach
to the Director of the Centre Dr Guy Rowlands at

If there is anything else you would like to draw to our attention to help your application, please mention it in a short covering email.

The closing date for applications is 1pm (GMT) on Wednesday 19th December 2012. The result of the competition will be communicated to applicants in the second half of January 2013.
