Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Fellowships
The Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Fellowships, established in 2000 through generous funding from Lord Sainsbury of Turville, are designed to strengthen academic ties with Japanese studies programmes in Asia, Canada, Europe, Oceania and the USA. The Fellowships provide recipients with an opportunity to work in a scholarly environment conducive to completing a publication project.
The Institute is offering several Fellowships of either six months or one year, to scholars who have received a PhD in any area of Japanese culture, although preference will be given to applications focusing on the history of art, cultural heritage, archaeology or architecture.
The one-year Fellowship will commence in September 2018 and carries a value of £23,500.
For the six-month Fellowship, please state the preferred start date in your application. This may be subject to negotiation. The six-month Fellowship carries a value of £12,000.
The appointed fellows will be given shared office space in Norwich.
Previous Robert and Lisa Sainsbury fellows have contributed to the Third Thursday lectures at the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures. In London, they have contributed to the Japan Research Centre Seminar Series at SOAS. Fellows will also be encouraged to organise a workshop in Norwich towards the end of their stay.
Fellows are required to have a good level of spoken and written English.
Fellows are expected to live in Norwich during their appointment.
