Belcher Visiting Fellowship in Victorian Studies

Applications are invited for the Belcher Visiting Fellowship at St Hugh’s College, Oxford.

The Principal and Fellows of St Hugh’s College are pleased to invite applications for one or more Belcher Visiting Fellowships in Victorian Studies for the academic year 2024-2025. Applications are particularly encouraged for the full academic year, but applications for periods of one or two academic terms that year or for the calendar year 2025 will also be considered.

The Belcher Visiting Fellowships in Victorian Studies are offered for a period of no longer than 12 months. They are usually held by academics on paid research leave from another institution, but other arrangements are possible. The Fellows are not employees of St Hugh’s and no salary is paid, but a grant and various allowances are made to cover expenses. If necessary to secure (additional) sabbatical leave from the Fellow’s home institution, a further sum may be available to cover the cost of replacement teaching.

Please see the further particulars and selection criteria for more details:
