The Institute of Advanced Study is Durham University’s flagship interdisciplinary research institute, providing a central forum for debate and collaboration across the entire disciplinary spectrum. The Institute seeks to catalyse new thinking on major annual themes by bringing together leading international academics as well as writers, artists and practitioners.

The theme for 2017/18 is Structure, interpreted in its broadest sense – scientifically, symbolically, legally, philosophically, literarily, politically, economically, and sociologically.

Up to 20, three-month fellowships (October–December 2017 and January–March 2018), linked to the annual theme, will be awarded. Applicants may be from any academic discipline or professional background involving research, and they may come from anywhere in the world. IAS Fellowships include an honorarium, funds for travel, accommodation, subsistence and costs associated with replacement teaching or loss of salary (where appropriate).
