Visiting International Fellowship 2014, University of Surrey, UK

Wednesday, June 5, 2013
The Department of Sociology at the University of Surrey, Guildford, United Kingdom, has established a Visiting International Fellowship (VIF) to foster the development of sociological research methods.

Between one and three Fellowships are awarded by competition each year. The awards are open to those who would value the opportunity to advance methodological understanding, for example by reflecting on methods used in previous empirical research, by validating existing or new methodological procedures, or by reviewing and synthesising methodological approaches. 'Methods' is interpreted widely, ranging from statistical techniques to innovations in qualitative analysis. The VIF is intended for established scholars, who are normally at least 5 years post doctorate.

An award of £2,500 will be made as a contribution towards travel and subsistence expenses incurred in holding the Fellowship. It is expected that VIF award-holders will normally be on paid leave of absence from their employment. Award-holders should be prepared to visit the Department on one or two occasions during the academic year with a duration of about one month in total. VIFs will become honorary Research Fellows of the University and be entitled to use the University Library and make use of University facilities. The holder of a fellowship is usually permanently resident outside the United Kingdom.
