Visiting Fellowship

This is a non-stipendiary research fellowship in any branch of the arts or sciences related to Greece, intended to enable a senior scholar to spend a period of approximately three months at the School.

Early Career Fellowship

Open: Yes

Early Career Fellowships at the British School at Athens are offered for up to 3 months for research in any branch of the arts or sciences related to Greece. The Fellowship is non-stipendiary, but accommodation and airfare are provided, either to Athens or Knossos. Early Career Fellowships are intended to enable scholars in first post to spend a period of research leave in Greece. They may, for example, be used to enhance a period of sabbatical or Research Council funded leave. They are not intended to support doctoral research. Fellows will be expected to conduct a programme of original research: the appointment carries no further formal obligations, although involvement in the academic life of the School (for example, in the form of a lecture or seminar) is welcomed. The Fellowship may be taken in either the autumn or the spring term. Accommodation is also offered to an accompanying spouse/partner, at a nominal daily rate. Regrettably, children cannot be accommodated.
