Humanities & Arts


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. Preference will be given to applicants working in the fields of visual studies, including but not limited to history of art, cultural heritage, archaeology, architecture, film studies and digital humanities. Preference will also be given to Early Career Researchers, defined by the AHRC as “within eight years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training, or an individual who is within six years of their first academic appointment”. One-year Fellowships are preferred and will commence in September 2019 with a value of £24,000.

Deadline: February 28, 2019.
