Visiting Scholars

Applications for visiting fellowships for 2019-2020 academic year are closed.
We aim to be the home of academic experimentation and freedom, where top-flight researchers are able to explore new territory in a cross-disciplinary direction and interact with visitors in an exciting environment.
The Institute welcomes applications for Visiting Fellowships from researchers within a large range of disciplines, such as anthropology, biology, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology and sociology, though motivated applications from any other discipline will be given full consideration.
Applications from economists are also encouraged, but successful applicants will have demonstrated an interest in, and a commitment to, at least one of the other non-economics disciplines of IAST.

IAST invites scholars already employed  in a permanent position by another research-active institution for visits ranging from 1 month to 1 year, during the next academic year 2019-20.

The group is interdisciplinary and international, and scholars are expected to pursue their own research. A completed doctorate or equivalent is required of all applicants.

Fellows receive reimbursement of travel and living expenses and are provided with a shared office. We welcome our visitors throughout the year except for July and August (when the majority of our Research Fellows are travelling) and University holidays.
