Information For Potential Visitors: Sabbatical
There are a number of ways of getting money to come to Oxford.
If you are interested in coming to work in my group, then fellowships
can be obtained in a number of ways:
(1) Oxford colleges offer Junior Research Fellowships (JRFs), which
provide salary, accomodation, food and a tiny bit of research money.
These are advertised in the Oxford
(2) National fellowship schemes are run by: NERC,
and the Royal
Society (The latter include both early career short schemes, such
as Newton and Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowships, as well as senior schemes
such as University Research Fellowships).
(3) The EU
have also started a scheme for fellows staying their own country, as
well as the schemes for visitors from specific countries. The schemes
for people to come to the UK are from other EU contries (Marie Curie
Fellowships), but also from outside the EU (e.g. USA) - although
navigating through the website beurocratic hell can be tricky.
If you are an established person wanting to spend sabbatical time here
then funding can be obtained from the Leverhulme
by adding in money to cover this visit as part of a standard 3 year
post-doc grant to NERC or BBSRC. Oxford colleges also offer short-term
non-stipendary fellowships, which usually provide accomodation and
food, and are advertised in the Oxford
NESCent may be a source of
cash to fund sabbaticals from the USA.
