Members of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health are encouraged to stimulate applications from eligible candidates and to assist by arranging a clinical attachment where this is appropriate. Applications will be considered by a committee of the Academic Board in October 2010 for the Visiting Fellowships to be awarded in 2011.
  3. The Visiting Fellowships are awarded to enable paediatricians from abroad who need financial assistance, to spend up to four weeks in the United Kingdom, in order to attend the RCPCH Annual Conference (which is usually held in April) and to make visits to a centre in the UK. In 2011, the RCPCH Annual Conference will be held at the University of Warwick, 5-7 April.
  4. The successful applicants will usually be paediatricians who have reached the equivalent of a consultant post, but will be in the early to mid years of their career.
  5. Applicants should include, within the space provided on the application form, a concise summary of their interests and needs, and indicate the way in which the Fellowship will be helpful when they return home.
  6. Priority will generally be given to applicants who are not otherwise likely to be able to visit the United Kingdom.

Reasonable expenses incurred in visiting other centres will also be covered. However, the Fellowship does not cover the expenses of any accompanying person(s).

{tab=Visiting Professorial Fellowship}

Institute of Philosophy Visiting Professorial Fellowship

The Institute’s aim is to promote and facilitate high quality research in philosophy, making it available to the widest possible audience both inside and outside the UK’s academic community. The Institute’s activities may be grouped into four categories :

  • Events – including conferences, workshops, seminar and lecture series
  • Research collaborations and networks
  • Fellowships – currently visiting fellowships and postdoctoral research
    fellowships
  • Research support – including digital resources and support for research students.

This Professorial Fellowship scheme for 2011-12 is open to applicants of professorial or equivalent status for the purpose of supporting philosophical research in London.

Visiting Professor Fellows can be appointed for up to 3 months.

The Visiting Fellows will pursue their work in the context of the thriving intercollegiate philosophical community of the University of London, and be expected to play an active intellectual role in the Institute.

Successful applicants will have shown that their research can benefit from the resources of the Institute, and that it can contribute productively to the Institute’s research activities.

The Professorial Fellowship is open to scholars of professorial or equivalent status in any part of  the world. It should be noted that this statement of eligibility corresponds to the UK system in which “Professor” is the highest rank of academic status, implying achievement, seniority and depth of experience.

The person appointed as Visiting Professorial Fellow will normally hold a senior academic post, though persons who have recently retired from an appropriate post may also be eligible.

Tenure

Fellowships may be held for a period of up to 3 consecutive months between September and June of the academic year 2011-12. (A longer tenure may be possible, but will not attract any financial support beyond that available for the first 3 months.)

Fellowships may be terminated (or the offer of a Fellowship withdrawn) without notice if the Institute is not satisfied that the conditions of the appointment are being (or can be) met.

Activities

Fellows are expected to :-

  • contribute to the scholarly activity of the Institute and the wider School of Advanced Study;
  • contribute to the Institute’s seminar series;
  • write a brief report for the Director at the end of the Fellowship period, for use in internal reporting and publicity.

Publications containing results of work done with the aid of a Fellowship should be reported to the Institute and should include adequate acknowledgement.

Application Deadline for Institute of Philosophy Visiting Professorial Fellowship : 4 February 2011
