Proposals are sought from Oxford researchers to facilitate new, or develop existing, relationships with external partners that further the reach and significance of research in all disciplines in the Humanities Division at Oxford. This is an additional application round taking advantage of additional in-year funding to support Humanities faculty members only, and a further regular application deadline will be advertised next year. The range of possible knowledge exchange activities and partners is deliberately broad; it is up to the applicant to make the case that what is proposed enhances their research, benefits the external partner(s), and has the potential to continue after the end of the Fellowship. All previous fellows have project descriptions on the TORCH website.

 Up to £10k is available to support each fellow. This may include buyout of up to one-term of either teaching taken as one-term or pro rata across several terms, and/or hourly paid research or teaching assistance, and/or similar justified project expenses up to total of £10k. An early-career option is also available for those who submitted their thesis no more than five years prior to 30 November 2018. The early-career fellowship will award a one-day a week staff contract at grade 7.1 (pro rata) plus £2000 project expenses. As this is an additional round, award holders may choose to take up their fellowship any time from the 1 January 2019 provided that all funds are spent by 31 July 2020.

Applicants must have the support of their faculty AND in the case of early-career applicants agreement from their line-manager or Senior Tutor to be released from their current post to undertake the fellowship.
