Visiting Fellowships at the British School at Athens are offered for periods of between 4-12 weeks for research in any branch of the arts or social sciences related to Greece and related to any chronological period from the Palaeolithic to the present. Fellowships are non-stipendiary, but accommodation is provided free of charge and the cost of one return airfare from the UK or elsewhere in Europe to Athens will be reimbursed.
Fellowships are open to established scholars at any career stage, normally in full-time employment at a university, museum, or comparable institution, and are ideally suited to those who have been granted a period of sabbatical leave during the relevant academic year. Preference may be given to applicants from UK HEIs.
Visiting Fellows will be expected to conduct a programme of their own research, give one public lecture at the BSA and an open seminar as part of the established programme. They should also be willing to concern themselves with the current students and their work and may wish to contribute additional lectures or seminars as appropriate in discussion with the Director.
Fellowships may be taken up in either the autumn or the spring semester in Athens or Knossos. The period of time is usually spent in a continuous block but it may alternatively be broken up into non-continuous blocks after discussion with the Director.
