Visiting Fellowships at the British School at Athens are offered for 2-3 months for research in any branch of the arts or social sciences related to Greece. The Fellowship is non-stipendiary, but accommodation and airfare are provided. The Fellow is required to submit a report covering their research and their time at the BSA to the BSA’s Council. Preference may be given to applicants from the UK HEIs. The Visiting Fellow should be an established scholar who is expected to conduct a programme of his/her own research, give one public lecture at the BSA and an open seminar as part of the established programme. He/she should also be willing to concern himself/herself with the current students and their work and may wish to contribute additional lectures or seminars as appropriate in discussion with the Director. The most effective time to take the Fellowship is between January and March when the maximum number of long-term students is in Athens and a large number of external events take place. Accommodation is also offered to an accompanying spouse/partner, at a nominal daily rate.
Applicants are advised to contact in advance of developing a proposal the relevant member of staff should they wish to include: BSA material (Archivist), Museum material (Assistant Director), Knossos material (Knossos Curator), Fitch Laboratory collections and facilities (Fitch Director) or need permissions to visit sites or study material (School Administrator). Further information about the School can be found at www.bsa.ac.uk
Applicants should submit a covering letter, a statement of their proposed programme of research in Greece, and a Curriculum Vitae.
