We are inviting applications for the 2022 UCL RIC Visiting Fellowship in Special Collections. This inaugural UCL Research Institute for Collections Fellowship offers an opportunity for a scholar in any field of study to visit UCL to conduct research on a topic focused on the UCL Special Collections holdings.

UCL Special Collections holds one of the foremost university collections of manuscripts, archives and rare books in the UK. They include fine collections of medieval manuscripts and early printed books as well as highly important 19th and 20th century collections of personal papers, archival material, and literature, covering a vast range of subject areas.

The successful candidate will spend up to six weeks between April and December 2022 at UCL researching the collections. The Fellow will be expected to engage with the curatorial and research community at UCL, and to disseminate the research outcomes to academic and non-academic audiences. The Fellow will receive a grant of £3,500 and a work space on the UCL Bloomsbury campus.
