Visiting Fellow in Irish Studies at Boston College – Ireland

Visiting Research Fellow in Irish Studies, Centre for Irish Programmes,
Boston College: Ireland, Spring term 2008

Boston College’s Centre for Irish Programmes, based in Dublin, is pleased to offer a Visiting Fellowship in Irish Studies. The Fellowship is open to any scholar of postdoctoral standing working in any area of Irish Studies, and would be ideal for someone on research leave from their own institution and seeking a base for their research in Ireland. The Fellow will be given an office in the Centre for Irish Programmes building at 42 St Stephen’s Green, and full computing and administrative support. The building is in the heart of Dublin and a short walk to the National Library and National Archives. The Centre runs a full lecture and research seminar programme throughout the year, and the Fellow would be invited to present a lecture during their tenure. Although there is no stipend attached to the Fellowship, there will be a payment of €5,000 to the Fellow to assist with travel to Ireland and some basic research costs.

The Fellowship is for a period of between two and six months, and is available from January 2008.

If you wish to apply for the Fellowship, please send a curriculum vitae and a two page rationale of the research that you wish to undertake while in Dublin. The deadline for applications is 17 November 2007.

For further information, please contact the Director of the Centre, Mike Cronin by e-mailing or call 00353-(0)1-6147450. For further details see:
