Monash University is pleased to announce the second opportunity to apply for the Ada Booth Research Fellowship in Slavic Studies based at Monash University Library in Melbourne, Australia.

The fellowship offers you a unique opportunity to further your research with our extensive resources in Ukrainian, Russian and other Slavic languages, Slavic Australiana, Soviet Studies, migrant and diaspora culture, and resources relating to the current political climate in Eastern Europe.

Monash University Library is one of Australia's leading academic libraries, inspiring and enabling scholars through exceptional expertise, resources, spaces and technologies, and collaboration.

We invite applications from researchers, postgraduate students and independent scholars from Australia and abroad. The fellowship will award up to AUD20,000 in non-salary funding for project-related costs to work on projects that will benefit from concentrated access to the Library’s Slavic collections and promote Slavic Studies and related fields. Costs could include project, travel, accommodation and living expenses. More than one fellowship may be awarded in 2020.

The fellowship is intended for a length of 3-6 months, and fellows are expected to engage with Monash University Library for the time of the fellowship.

Current Monash University staff and students, and previous Fellowship holders, are not eligible to apply.

Please see the website for more information about the fellowship:

The deadline for applications is 31 January 2020.
