Under the Visiting Research Fellowships programme, the Treasury sponsors academics to spend a period at Treasury working on a project of mutual interest.
Research Fellowships typically run for three to six weeks (which need not be undertaken consecutively). Up to three Research Fellows are sponsored per year.
In some cases, Research Fellows work mostly independently on an agreed project of mutual interest to the Research Fellow and to the Treasury. In other cases, the Fellow works on a project in active collaboration with Treasury staff. In all cases, the Research Fellow is expected to engage informally with staff during his or her stay. In addition, the Fellows usually deliver a seminar for Treasury staff during their stay.
The Research Fellow’s salary costs will be met by their home institution. The Treasury will contribute funding towards agreed travel, living or research costs.
Graduate students (candidates either for Masters or PhD degrees) are not eligible for a Visiting Research Fellowships. A list of Research Fellows at the Treasury since 2003 is below.
The Treasury is currently revising its procedures for receiving applications and proposals for Visiting Research Fellowships and will advise the new procedures in due course.
