Call Now Open: Trinity Long Room Hub Visiting Research Fellowship COFUND Programme 2019-20

20 August 2018 - The Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute has opened the call for applications for the third and final year of our fellowship programme co-funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (COFUND).  The opportunity to apply for one of three 2019-20 fellowships will close at 00:00 Midnight GMT+1, Irish Standard Time, on 19 October 2018.


Last year’s call for 2018-19 fellowships received over 50 applications from 26 countries across five continents. Dr Anna BarczDr Christopher Pastore and Dr Katherine Zieman, the successful candidates, will begin their fellowships at the Trinity Long Room Hub in October 2018.

The first three fellows appointed in this three-year programme, Dr Alexander Bubb, Dr Meltem Gürle and Dr Deborah Thorpe, will soon conclude their  2017-18 fellowships:

Dr Deborah Thorpe’s research project ‘Old Hands: a Palaeographical Study of Ageing Medieval and Early Modern Scribes’ was in association with the School of Histories and Humanities and the Manuscript, Book and  Print Cultures theme as well as the emerging area of Neurohumanities. Highlights of her fellowship can be found here.
“This Fellowship was an opportunity to develop my medical humanities research in a truly interdisciplinary environment - and in a physical space that is dedicated to the humanities. Trinity College Dublin has a growing 'neurohumanities' network, and I have been enjoying conversations with researchers from a variety of connected disciplines.”  - Dr Deborah Thorpe

Dr Meltem Gürle’s research project ‘Childhood-Narratives: The Problem of Identity Formation in Irish and Turkish Bildungsroman’ was in association with the Identities in Transformation research theme and the Schools of English and Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies. Highlights of her fellowship can be found here.
“From the very first day at the Hub I felt very much at home, because it’s both very professional in the sense that it provides you with all the academic support you need but also a very friendly environment.” – Dr Meltem Gürle

Dr Alexander Bubb’s research project ‘Asian Classics for Victorian Bookshelves, 1845-1918’ was in association with the Manuscript, Book and Print Cultures research theme and the School of English. Highlights of his fellowship can be found here.
“I’ve been really impressed by how the Hub functions as a research institute: it combines the ideal qualities of having a strong community focus and a very active research environment.” – Dr Alexander Bubb

This Marie Sklodowska-Curie CoFund fellowship programme builds on the Trinity Long Room Hub’s existing Visiting Research Fellowship scheme which has hosted over 140 fellows to date. It offers 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 and will also have 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.
Eligible applicants must submit a proposal closely aligned with one of Trinity College Dublin’s five Arts and Humanities led research themes which are supported by the Trinity Long Room Hub: Identities in TransformationDigital HumanitiesMaking IrelandCreative Arts Practice and Manuscript, Book and Print Cultures.
