What we offer
Fellows will be offered the mentorship of the IHR’s Director and other staff across the School of Advanced Study. This will include help in planning the future, through: career advice; assistance with applications for jobs, postdocs and fellowships; mock interviews; and guidance with publication plans and research grant applications. Augmenting our close connections across academia, the IHR’s extensive partnerships will be open to those Fellows who are interested in working in sectors outside of the academy. Fellows will have the support of our Fellowships Officer throughout the fellowship. At the IHR they will have access to our world-renowned Wohl Library, extended electronic resources, and our extensive seminar and events programme.
Our Fellows’ seminar programme provides an opportunity for each Fellow to present their research in a collegial atmosphere, before their peers, senior historians, and others. Fellows have free access to the IHR’s research training courses, and are offered a number of exclusive, tailored training workshops.
Holders of RHS fellowships will also have the opportunity to contribute to the Royal Historical Society’s blog on their research and to take part in RHS events and training. Holders of the RHS fellowships who are not already members of the Society will receive a 12-month Postgraduate Membership of the Royal Historical Society https://royalhistsoc.org/membership/membership-postgraduate/ as part of their award.
