MARTIN HARRISON MEMORIAL FELLOWSHIP

ADVERTISEMENT

With funds donated in memory of the late Professor Martin Harrison, the University of Oxford has instituted a scheme of short-term Fellowships to enable Turkish scholars to come to the United Kingdom and Oxford for a period of research. The Fellowships are open to Turkish citizens (men and women) resident in Turkey who are working in any area of the material and visual culture of Anatolia, from the Prehistoric to the Ottoman period.

Applications are welcome from archaeologists and scholars in related fields such as epigraphy, numismatics, ancient history, and art history. Applicants should have completed two years of postgraduate research and be aged forty-five or younger. The Fellowships are intended for scholars from the docent, assistant and doctoral student levels.

Competence in speaking and writing English is necessary. The Fellowship is to support a stay of between six and thirteen weeks, and has a maximum value of £1,500. A return airfare to London will be provided by the British Institute at Ankara (BIAA).

Application forms and further details are available from the British Institute at Ankara, 24 Tahran Caddesi, Kavaklidere, TR-06700 Ankara. (library@biaatr.org) The closing date for applications is 15 June 2013. Completed applications, including a curriculum vitae, should be sent to the BIAA which will forward them to the University of Oxford.

MARTIN HARRISON MEMORIAL FELLOWSHIP

Information for Applicants

The purpose of the Fellowship scheme, set up in memory of the late Professor Martin Harrison, is to enable Turkish scholars, working in any area of the archaeology of Anatolia from Pre-history to the Ottoman period, to come to the United Kingdom and Oxford, for a period of research. It is intended for scholars from the docent, assistant, and doctoral student levels, who are not able to take advantage of opportunities for travel that are available to senior scholars.

Applicants should normally have completed two years of postgraduate research and be aged forty-five or younger. The Fellowships are open to Turkish citizens resident in Turkey who are working in any area of the material and visual culture of Anatolia, from the Prehistoric to the Ottoman period. Applications are welcome from archaeologists and scholars in related fields such as epigraphy, numismatics, ancient history, and art history. Suitable museum curators and personnel are also eligible. The competition is open to both men and women.

Fellows will receive a grant of up to £1,500 from the Martin Harrison Fund to cover a visit of (normally) between six and thirteen weeks. It is intended that the grant should be used for living expenses and other associated costs of the visit. In addition, the British Institute at Ankara (BIAA) will pay for the Fellow's travel expenses from and to Turkey. The preferred time for the Fellow to come to Oxford is within the period from January to March, when staff and students will be in residence for the University term.

The Fellow will be attached to St. Hugh's College, and will be eligible for accommodation and for membership of the graduate Common Room there. The colleges at Oxford provide a variety of social facilities for graduate students, allowing those from various disciplines to meet informally. The Fellow will also be attached to the faculty or equivalent University body which is most appropriate to his or her field of research, and an `academic host' will be appointed with interests as closely related as possible to those of the Fellow. The academic host will be able to advise the Fellow on the libraries and other facilities available, arrange for meetings with other relevant scholars, and help as far as possible with other problems.

Although applications are to be sent to the BIAA, the Fellow will be selected by the Martin Harrison Memorial Fund Committee of the University of Oxford, whose members are representative of the broad range of Anatolian archaeology. The selection will be made on the basis of academic record, coherent research proposal, ability to benefit from libraries and scholars in Oxford, and working knowledge of spoken and written English. Any further inquiries should be addressed to the BIAA.

  Completed application forms, including a curriculum vitae and the names of two academic referees, should be sent to: The British Institute at Ankara, 24 Tahran Caddesi, Kavaklıdere, TR-06700 Ankara, by 15 June 2013. Applicants should ask their referees to send letters to the same address also by the same date.
