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 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 conversation and discourse analysis.
An honorarium of 2,000 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 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 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 discourse and 
conversation analysis, 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.
