The application deadline for Fellowships to be held in 2019-20 is 28th February 2019. 

In order to build sustainable, museum-based teaching into the curriculum, the UEP now offers up to six Ashmolean Faculty Fellowships annually.

The Ashmolean’s Faculty Fellowship scheme, funded by the Andrew W Mellon Foundation offers up to six faculty members each year a residency in the Museum of one day per week for one term, to undertake collections-based research aimed at developing new, object-led teaching at undergraduate or postgraduate level.  Fellows are given collections database access, training in object handling, and curatorial support, and are brought into the daily life of the Museum. 


Funding Details:

The fellowships enable faculty members from any discipline to spend one day a week at the Ashmolean over the course of a term, developing new, object-focused teaching for their department whilst benefitting from privileged access to the collections and to curatorial expertise.

The Ashmolean Faculty Fellowships are designed to fit into the working academic year and do not require the holders to take leave or be on sabbatical.
Each Fellowship is worth up to £2000, which may be used to buy out a proportion of the Fellow's departmental or college teaching during the term of their residency in the Museum.

Who can Apply:

We welcome enquiries from faculty members in any discipline who are interested in collaborating with Ashmolean curators and using the Museum’s collections and study spaces for teaching
