Joining the Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories through a Visiting Research Fellowship

The Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories invites applications, from individual researchers and historical practitioners who are not members of staff at the University of Brighton but would like to undertake collaborative research with us, to become one of our Visiting Research Fellows for a period of up to one year. Former DPhil research students who have recently been awarded their doctorate from the University and seek a continuing affiliation as postdoctoral researchers are also eligible and welcome to apply, as are retired former employees of the University.

Applications must propose specific activities or projects and identify the contribution it is envisaged they will make to CMNH’s existing research areas and activities. Sponsorship by one of our permanently employed staff members is required, and potential applicants are advised to identify a suitable sponsor from our Researcher Membership and secure their support for the application in advance. All applications must be approved by the Dean of the School of Humanities and Social Science. The University charges successful applicants a fee of £200. This secures a University of Brighton IT account, email address and access to the University’s libraries and other facilities.

Applicants must submit, via their sponsor, a completed application form, a completed IT Account Registration Form and a CV.

A call for VRFs will be made in June 2023 – more details will follow nearer the time.
