The Warburg Institute, London -- Mellon Research Fellowships for Scholars 
in the humanities from Eastern Europe, 1998-99

The Warburg Institute
The Warburg Institute is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of the 
classical tradition - in the sense of those elements in European thought, 
art and institutions that have evolved out of the cultures of the ancient 
world.  Its Library and Photographic Collection are designed and arranged 
to encourage research into the processes by which one culture learns from 
another, and by which different fields of thought and art act on each 
other.  They are particularly concerned with continuities between the 
ancient Mediterranean civilizations and the cultural and intellectual 
history of post-classical Europe, especially in the period to c. 1800, 
and aim to document the tenacity of symbols and images in European art 
and architecture, the persistence of motifs and forms in Western 
languages and literatures, the gradual transition in Western thought from 
magical beliefs to religion, science and philosophy, and the survival and 
transformation of ancient patterns in social customs and political 
institutions.

The Institute's resources comprise an open-access research library of 
about 350,000 volumes, shelved with many thousands of offprints, some 
3,000 journal titles and a reference collection of over 300,000 
photographs complementing the material in the Library.

The Institute has an active programme of teaching, seminars, lectures and 
colloquia, often arranged in collaboration with other institutions or 
learned societies, both British and foreign.  Those working at the 
Institute, including research fellows and scholars of many different 
nationalities, are encouraged to present and discuss their research in 
regular term-time seminars.

Mellon Research Fellowships
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has selected the Institute as one of the 
institutes of advanced study in Western Europe to participate in a 
Fellowship programme for Eastern European scholars in the humanities.

3 three-month Fellowships are available for tenure in 1998-99 in any area 
falling within the interests of the Institute.

Eligibility:
The Fellowships are open to Bulgarian, Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, 
and Slovak scholars.  Candidates should not be permanently resident 
outside the four countries concerned.

Fellows should have obtained a doctorate or have equivalent experience.  
The Fellowships are intended for younger postdoctoral scholars and, 
although there is no specific age limit, preference will be given to 
those under 40 years of age.

Fellows who have already held an award under this scheme are not eligible 
for a second Fellowship at any of the participating institutions.

Value of Fellowships:
The value of the Fellowships will be the sterling equivalent of $11,500 
each.  Given fluctuating exchange rates, the exact figure cannot be 
predicted.
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, in making this grant, intends that it 
should cover a stipend including all living and subsistence costs; travel 
and shipping costs (including travel to and from England, and other trvel 
during the Fellowship); health insurance; post-Fellowship expenses 
(including acquisition of materials, subscriptions, hard- and soft-ware, 
membership and publications costs).
These funds will be payable to Fellows after arrival at the Institute.

Tenure:
Term dates for 1998-99 are:  5 October - 11 December 1998; 11 
January - 19 March 1999; 19 April - 25 June 1999.  At least two of the 
three months of the Fellowship must fall within the Institute's terms.

Selection:
No interviews will be held.
Awards will be announced in May 1998.  All candidates will be informed of 
the outcome of their application.

General:
Fellows will be expected to participate in the life of the Institute and 
to put their knowledge at the disposal of the Institute by presenting 
their work in a seminar and by advising the Library and Photographic 
Collection.  Fellows may teach elsewhere during tenure of the Fellowship 
only with the express permission of the Director.  They will be required 
to present a brief written report at the conclusion of their 
appointment.  A Fellowship may be terminated if the Apponting Committee 
is not satisfied that the conditions fo the award are being met.  All 
publications containing results of work done with the aid of a Fellowship 
shall include adequate acknowledgement of the fact.

Applications:
Applications should be made by letter to the Director giving the 
following information:
1.  A curriculum vitae giving full details of name, date of birth, 
nationality, address and present occupation, school and university 
education, degrees, teaching and research experience, publications
2.  An outline of proposed research
3.  Particulars of grants received, if any, for the same subject
4.  The names and addresses of two or three persons who have agreed to 
write, without further invitation, to the Director in support of the 
application.  These letters of reference should reach the Director by 6 
April 1998.  It is the responsibility of candidates to ask their referees 
to write to the Director by this date.
5.  Copies of published work should be submitted, if possible.  
Candidates should indicate whether they wish these publications to be 
returned, or whether they may be given to the Institute's Library.

Applications must arrive at the Institute no later than 1 April 1998.  

Applications should be made by post.  Please do NOT make applications by 
e-mail.  The postal address of the Institute is:
