ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions Early Career International Research Fellowships Program

ARC Centre of Excellence in the History of Emotions (Europe 1100-1800): Early Career International Research Fellowships Program.

As part of its international research collaboration, CHE will fund excellent international Early Career Researchers in the field to visit one or more of the Australian nodes for a period of two months, to work with members of the Centre on a research program of their choice.

Since the object of the Early Career International Research Fellowships is primarily to promote collaborative research, the Fellows will not be required to undertake any undergraduate teaching, but will be required to deliver at least one paper or lecture.

The Fellow will be provided with a return airfare from their home to Australia, accommodation and a daily living allowance for their stay in Australia, and travel between Australian nodes of the Centre.

Intending applicants are eligible to apply if they:

1. Hold a doctorate in a relevant field of study, gained in the period 2004-2012.
2. Are based at a university outside Australia (note: this includes Australian citizens currently working at universities outside Australia).

CHE is now issuing a call for applications for Early Career International Research Fellowships, to be taken over the period 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2014. Applicants should provide:

1. An up-to-date academic CV of no more than 6-pages. Note: applicants’ research track records will be judged strictly relative to opportunity.
2. A description, no longer than one A4 page, of the proposed research to be undertaken during the Fellowship, including a statement of how the research relates to the Centre’s overall research into the history of emotions in Europe 1100-1800, and the proposed outcomes of the research (e.g. draft of an article, perhaps jointly authored with one or more CHE member(s), development of further research interchange and collaboration activities, and so on). It is expected that CHE support would be acknowledged in any publication deriving from the Fellowship.
3. The name(s) of CHE staff with whom the applicant wishes to collaborate, the preferred dates of the fellowship, and the preferred ‘home’ university for the duration of the visit.
4. The names and contact details of two referees.
