TORCH | 2022 – 2023 | Knowledge Exchange Fellowship

by opportunitydiary

Application Deadline:  Monday, 7 February 2022 

Proposals are sought from Oxford researchers to facilitate new, or develop existing, relationships with external partners that further the reach and significance of research in all humanities disciplines at Oxford. The range of possible knowledge exchange activities and partners is deliberately broad; it is up to the applicant to make the case that what is proposed enhances their research, benefits the external partner(s), and has the potential to continue after the end of the Fellowship. All previous fellows have project descriptions on the TORCH website.

Eligibility

All applicants must be employees of the collegiate university with an academic post until at least the end of the KE Fellowship (from the agreed start date to 31 July 2023). Applicants MUST have the support of their faculty AND in the case of early-career applicants, agreement from their line manager or Senior Tutor to be released from their current post to undertake the fellowship. To qualify as an early-career researcher, you must have submitted your doctoral thesis not more than five years prior to the start of the KE Fellowship (pro-rata for career breaks and/or work part-time).

Benefits

Up to £12k is available to support each fellow.
This may include a buyout of teaching, either as one term or pro rata across several terms, and/or hourly paid research or teaching assistance, and/or justified project expenses up to a total of £12k. An early-career option is also available for those who submitted their thesis no more than five years prior to the start of the KE Fellowship. The early-career fellowship will award a one-day a week staff contract at grade 7.1 (pro rata) plus up to £3000 project expenses. All funds awarded must be spent by 20 July 2023 with events, workshops, travel etc. to be completed before this deadline.

Application Procedure

Applications are made using the IRAMS online form. Please provide your external partner’s name, email, and, where applicable, the name of the organisation as a collaborator. The budget tab must be completed with an estimate of all costs; the staff contract cost for early-career researchers should be included at £9000. Ineligible costs include overheads or indirect/estates costs or equivalent ‘bench fees’, books, general office supplies, and computer hardware.

Applications will be submitted online and must then be approved by your faculty through the IRAMS approval system. Please discuss your application in advance with your Research Director and/or Head of Administration and Finance.

This Fellowship will be held between 1 August 2022 – 31 July 2023.

This may include buyout of teaching for postholders, either as one term or pro rata across several terms, and/or hourly paid research or teaching assistance, and/or justified project expenses up to total of £12k.

An early-career option is also available for those who submitted their thesis no more than five years prior to the start of the KE Fellowship. The early-career fellowship will award up to a 0.2 FTE staff contract at grade 7.1 (pro rata) plus up to £3000 project expenses.
