********************* ANNOUNCEMENT ************************************

VISITING INTERNATIONAL FELLOWSHIP in SOCIAL RESEARCH METHODS

The Institute of Social Research at the University of Surrey, Guildford,
United Kingdom, has established a Visiting International Fellowship to
foster the development of sociological research methods. Between one and
three Fellowships are awarded by competition each year. The university
is located thirty-five miles south-west of London.

The awards are open to those who would value the opportunity to advance
methodological understanding, for example by reflecting on methods used
in
previous empirical research, by validating existing or new methodological
procedures, or by reviewing and synthesizing methodological approaches.
'Methods' may be interpreted widely, to include, for example, statistical
techniques and methods of quantitative analysis, field research, content
analysis and conversation and discourse analysis. The department
specialises in social research methods and has the highest 5* rating for
research in the UK Research Assessment Exercise.

An honorarium of 2,000 pounds sterling will be paid (it is expected that
award-holders will normally be on paid leave of absence from their
employment). Award holders will be expected to pay their own travel
costs to Guildford and
their accommodation and subsistence for the duration of their award,
which
should be for one or more visits during the academic year with a
duration of at least one month in total. Visiting International Fellows
will become honorary Research Fellows of the University and be entitled
to use the University Library and make use of University facilities. The
holder of a fellowship is usually permanently resident outside the
United Kingdom.

The Institute of Social Research of the Department of Sociology at Surrey
provides research expertise and research methods for the application of
social research to contemporary society. It promotes high methodological
standards and new developments in methodology for the social science
research community. ISR is the home of CAQDAS, the ESRC-supported centre
for Computer Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis Software, is well known
for
its work on the secondary analysis of large data sets,  for work on
online research methods, has an interest in CAPI documentation issues,
and the Social Survey Question Bank associated with CASS, the ESRC
Centre for Applied Social Surveys, is located here. Other methodological
specialisms include the computer
simulation of social phenomena and cross-national comparison. The
Department publishes the quarterly SOCIAL RESEARCH UPDATE on the WWW,
and houses the office of the journal SOCIOLOGICAL RESEARCH ONLINE.

Applications should be sent to Kathy Lilley, Administrator, Institute of
Social Research, Department of Sociology, University of Surrey Guildford,
GU2 7XH, UK

words
the activity to be carried out during the Fellowship and should be
accompanied by a brief curriculum vitae and the names, postal address,
telephone number, fax number and e-mail address of two referees.
Applicants
may find it helpful to contact the Institute to discuss their application
before submitting it. Collaborative research with members of the
Institute
