Donald Bullough Fellowship for a Mediaval Historian


St Andrews Institute of Mediaeval Studies


The St Andrews Institute of Mediaeval Studies invites applications for the Donald Bullough Fellowship in Mediaeval History, to be taken up during either semester of the academic year 2012-13

The Fellowship is open to any academic in a permanent university post with research interests in mediaeval history. It covers the cost of return travel to St Andrews from the holder’s normal place of work, together with a substantial subsidy towards accommodation while the holder is resident in St Andrews.  Previous Fellows have included Dr Christina Pössel, Professor Cynthia Neville and Dr Ross Balzaretti. The fellowship is currently held by Dr Marlene Hennessy.


The Fellowship carries with it no teaching duties, though the Fellow is expected to take part in the normal seminar life of the mediaeval historians during their stay in St Andrews. Weekly seminars, held on a Monday evening, run from September – December, and February – May. You will also be invited to lead a workshop on your chosen research theme during your stay. Fellows are provided with computing facilities and an office alongside the mediaeval historians in the Institute. The university library has an excellent collection for mediaeval historians.

You should send a letter of application by the advertised closing date, together with a scheme of research for the project on which you will be engaged during your time in St Andrews.  You should also enclose a CV, together with the names of two academic referees, who should be asked to write by the closing date. All correspondence should be addressed to The Director, St Andrews Institute of Mediaeval Studies, University of St Andrews, 71 South St, St Andrews, Scotland, KY16 9QW. Please mark the envelope ‘Donald Bullough Mediaeval Fellowship’.

The closing date for applications is 30 March 2012
