The 2022 UCL RIC Visiting Fellowship in Special Collections offers an opportunity to visit UCL to conduct research on a topic centred on the UCL holdings of archives, rare books, and records.
The UCL Research Institute for Collections was founded in 2021 to foster research synergies centred on the library, museum, gallery and departmental collections held in UCL by bringing together curatorial and academic expertise. The Institute is offering an inaugural Fellowship in Special Collections for a scholar in any field of study to visit UCL to conduct research on a topic focused on the UCL Special Collections holdings.
The successful candidate will spend up to six weeks, or the part-time equivalent, at UCL researching the collections. The fellowship must be taken up between April and December 2022.
