Applications are invited for a Visiting Fellowship & an Early Career Fellowship at the British School at Athens for 2-3 months in the academic year 2014-15 in any branch of the arts or sciences related to Greece. The Fellowship is non-stipendiary, but accommodation and airfare and reasonable travelling expenses are provided. The Visiting Fellow / Early Career Fellow will be required to submit a report on his/her research and a short general report on their time at the School to the School’s Council.


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 School 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.

The Early Career Fellowship is intended to enable people in first post to spend a period of research leave in Greece. It may, for example, be used to enhance a period of sabbatical or research council funded leave. Fellows will be expected to conduct a programme of original research: the appointment carries no further formal obligations, although involvement in the academic life of the School (for example, in the form of a lecture or seminar) is welcomed. The Fellowship may be taken in either the autumn or the spring term in Athens or Knossos.

The Visiting Fellow /Early Career Fellow is offered free accommodation in the Visiting Fellow’s flat in the Hostel and accommodation is also offered to accompanying spouse/partner, who is most welcome, at a nominal daily rate. Regrettably, children cannot be accommodated in the Hostel. The School will pay one return airfare London-Athens.

Applicants should submit a covering letter, a Curriculum Vitae and a statement of their proposed programme of research in Greece.

Applications should be sent by Monday 31st March 2014.
