An Foras Feasa, the Research Institute for the Humanities at Maynooth University and The Faculty of Arts, Celtic Studies and Philosophy are pleased to announce the call for applications for the Visiting Fellowship Scheme in the Humanities for the academic year 2017-18.

The duration of the visiting fellowship is envisaged as ordinarily between one and six months; applications for a shorter or longer duration will be considered. Preference will be given to Fellows whose residence coincides when students are in term and Fellows from outside Ireland. Only in exceptional circumstances will Fellowships be awarded to researchers normally resident in Ireland.

Fellows will receive office space and office facilities from An Foras Feasa in the Iontas Building, a state-of-the-art humanities research institute, along with full library access and computer facilities. There is a robust and welcoming research culture at Maynooth University and Fellows will be facilitated in achieving their research goals while in residence.

Fellows will be asked to provide one seminar or a workshop to postgraduate students in the Researcher’s field of interest, as well as a guest lecture to the University community. A limited number of travel stipends of €500 will be available; preference will be given to applicants with limited institutional funding.
