The Trinity Long Room Hub’s Visiting Research Fellowship Programme is pivotal to our mission to connect our research community with the most distinguished scholars in the world and to raise the international profile of Trinity’s Arts and Humanities research. Fellows progress their major research, career changing projects, work with the unique collections of the Trinity College Library, and engage intensely with colleagues and students from cognate areas within the university and in other institutions on collaborative research. They also share their research insights with the public through a range of events.

The Fagel Collection Visiting Research Fellowship 2022-23

The Library of Trinity College holds the finest surviving Dutch private library of the eighteenth century, known as the Fagel Collection. With the support of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and in partnership with the KB National Library of the Netherlands, the Library of Trinity College Dublin, in association with the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute, has embarked on a project to increase the discoverability of the collection, and to enhance its research potential.

The Unlocking the Fagel Collection Project (2020-23) is working to record all Dutch imprints in the Fagel Collection in the Short-Title Catalogue Netherlands, the Dutch pre-1800 national bibliography, and to incorporate these and all the other printed books and pamphlets in the collection into the catalogue of the Library of Trinity College.

The project includes an opportunity for a visiting research fellow to work on the Fagel Collection for a three month consecutive period between 1 September 2022 and 31 March 2023 (excluding December) in association with the Trinity Long Room Hub. Applicants must be distinguished scholars (not resident or employed on the island of Ireland) of the highest standing in their respective fields, appropriate to their career stage. They must have fluent spoken and written English. The Fagel Collection fellowship is open equally to established and mid-career researchers and postdoctoral researchers.

Short Term Funded Fellowships

We partner with our member Schools and the Library to appoint a small number of funded Visiting Research Fellows for short periods.

Important information to note about this scheme:

  • It is aimed at established to mid-career scholars, not resident or employed on the island of Ireland, with fluent spoken and written English.
  • Fellowship durations are one to three months. The funding includes flights, accommodation and reimbursement for living expenses of up to €600 a month on a receipt basis.
  • The call is not advertised publicly – nominations must come through our partnering Schools, themes and the Library.  Interested scholars should seek an academic collaborator in the relevant partnering area. When the internal call for nominations goes live (the 2022-24 call is open between January and 1 March 2022), the collaborator will circulate the application form to the interested scholar for completion and secure their area’s support for the application to be submitted as part of the small number of applications the area can submit in a given year.
  • The short term funded scheme is a competitive selection process. Once all applications are received they are considered by a selection committee and a limited number will be funded.

If you have enquiries about applying to this scheme please contact Dr Caitriona Curtis at

Non-Stipendiary Fellowships

The Institute welcomes applications for short term non-stipendiary fellowships of 1 to 3 months from mid-career/established international scholars (not resident or employed on the island of Ireland) who have secured funding of their own. The most important requirement is that before applying interested scholars should have secured the support of an academic collaborator within a partnering Trinity Long Room Hub School. This is to ensure that appointed fellows are integrated into the academic community most closely aligned to their own research background.

This 2020-25 fellowship scheme is in partnership with ADAPT, the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Digital Content Innovation at Trinity College Dublin, and cofunded by the prestigious European Commission Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. Following international recruitment campaigns it will appoint up to 18 experienced researchers for 2-year post-doctoral fellowships working on human-centric approaches to technology development allowing for interdisciplinary research, integrating insights from the arts, humanities and computer sciences as well as enterprise.
