The successful applicant will become a Visiting Fellow of the OCHJS for at least one calendar month during either Oxford University’s Hilary Term 2022 or Trinity Term 2022. As such a Visiting Fellow, she/he will be the recipient of a stipend of £3,000.

  1. Title of Project
  2. Description of subject
  3. Research methods to be used
  4. Possibilities for innovation through the research project
  5. Reasons why Oxford is particularly appropriate as the venue for the research, including titles of materials that might be consulted as part of the project
  6. Value of the project for the development of Jewish Studies as an academic subject
  7. Outcomes of the project (e.g., articles, book chapters, etc.)

Please attach a curriculum vitae and publication list in addition to the proposal.

The OCHJS will inform applicants following the deadline in November 2021 which projects have been selected for further consideration and then may request further information from applicants before the final decision is made and announced in the beginning of December 2021.
