Woolf Institute Visiting Fellowships

The Woolf Institute is now welcoming applications and expressions of interest for the Visiting Fellowships. Our Fellowships are available for one, two or three terms of the academic year 2022/23.

The Woolf Institute is a charitable organisation with strong ties to the University of Cambridge. The Institute's work focuses on the relationships between religion and wider society and between Christian, Jewish and Muslim communities. Alongside academic research, the Woolf Institute delivers programmes of teaching, public education, outreach, training and policy-related work.

Successful candidates will be expected to be engaged in a project of academic research, public education or policy-related work in an area relevant to the Institute's activities. Applicants must demonstrate how their work will make a direct contribution to ongoing work at the Institute with reference to a specific research, public education or policy programme. Visiting Fellows are expected to present their work to the Institute and deliver at least one lecture, seminar or workshop.

We welcome postdoctoral researchers at all career stages (including early career scholars) and from all disciplinary backgrounds. We also welcome expressions of interest from non-academic applications, particularly those from faith organisations and public or charity sectors.

Fellows will be given access to the Woolf Institute and University of Cambridge libraries, and provided with financial support for an academic conference.
