Call Now Open: Trinity Long Room Hub Visiting Research Fellowship COFUND Programme 2018-19

23 August 2017 - The Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute is now accepting applications for the second year of its new fellowship programme co-funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (COFUND).  A call for applications to the 2018-19 fellowship programme opened on 21 August 2017 and will close at 00:00 Midnight GMT on 20 October 2017.


The first call, issued last year for three fellowship positions to be undertaken in 2017-18, received over 80 applications from 30 countries. Dr Meltem Gurle, Dr Alexander Bubb and Dr Deborah Thorpe, the successful candidates, will begin their fellowship at the Trinity Long Room Hub in October 2017.

This COFUND fellowship programme builds on the Trinity Long Room Hub’s existing Visiting Research Fellowship scheme which has hosted over 100 fellows to date. It will offer experienced researchers a unique opportunity to acquire skills that will enhance their research and employment prospects by deepening their competencies and professional networks.

Successful applicants will be provided with a 12 month fully paid fellowship at the Trinity Long Room Hub while also having the opportunity to undertake a secondment in the non-academic sector in Ireland or in another EU member state for a period of up to two months.

The new fellowship programme is central to the Trinity Long Room Hub’s strategy to advance and promote the excellence of the Arts and Humanities research environment in Ireland on an international level. To achieve this, applicants must be in a position  to submit a proposal closely aligned with one of Trinity College Dublin’s five Arts and Humanities led research themes which the Trinity Long Room Hub supports: Identities in TransformationDigital HumanitiesMaking IrelandCreative Arts Practice and Manuscript, Book and Print Cultures.
