The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences Research Fellows are provided with teaching relief for a semester in order to bring a research or publication project to completion. They are asked to spend part of this time working in the centre and to contribute to the seminar programme and its other activities. Applications are invited from every school within the Faculty of Arts. At least one grant per year is allocated to an Early Career Researcher.
The Centre for the History of European Discourses' Summer Scholarship programme offers students who have completed three years of study in Arts, and who plan to do honours or a research higher degree, the opportunity to work under the supervision of a member or affiliate of the Centre.
The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) seeks to build lasting and effective relationships with leading scholars from Australia and overseas. IASH fosters high level research in the humanities with a thematic focus on Intellectual and Literary History, Critical and Cultural Studies, the History of Emotions, and Science and Society.
The Visiting Scholars Programme aims to encourage exceptional scholars working in areas relevant to our research strengths to spend a period of time—from one or two weeks to several months—conducting research and collaborating with scholars within the Institute. IASH aims to select a mixture of early, mid, and senior career scholars.
The Programme is ideally suited to scholars who are on sabbatical or research leave and who are interested in collaborating with research staff in IASH, along with colleagues in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
