Senate House Library Visiting Research Fellowship 2019–2020

Senate House Library, in partnership with the Friends of Senate House Library, is inviting researchers from outside the University of London to apply for a Visiting Research Fellowship of up to three months from July to September 2019, which makes use of the Library’s world-class collections.

The successful candidate should hold a PhD at the time of application and could be awarded up to £10,000. 

As well as 50 named special collections and more than 1,800 collections of archives and manuscripts, from the Middle Ages to present time, Senate House Library provides access to more than 2 million printed items, arranged into 14 named subject collections, in addition to a nationally significant collection of print and electronic journals, and a growing range of e-resources and e-books, thus making it one of the world’s greatest research libraries for the study of the arts, literature, humanities, and social sciences. The Library is also a prime cultural destination in the heart of London, offering an innovative and exciting programme of free exhibitions and events for a wide range of audiences.

Senate House Library’s collections are particularly strong in eight core areas, including Literature in English and other European Languages, Book History and Manuscript Studies, The Mind and Magic, Radical Politics, Social and Economic History, Commonwealth Studies, Latin American Studies, and Migration and Cultural Memory. 

Applicants are strongly encouraged to refer to one or more of these collecting and subject strengths to ensure their project is aligned with the Library’s research priorities.
