The Committee for the Carlyle Fund offers one Research Scholarship in the history of political thought (post- classical), broadly defined, tenable from October 1998 for up to three years. The Scholarship will include maintenance at the current level of British Academy/ESRC awards, all University and College fees at the Home/EU rate, and a book grant of £400 a year. The Scholar must be a registered research student of the University or have applied for admission in October 1998; his or her progress will be subject to annual review by the Committee. Candidates must have completed at least one year of postgraduate study by the time at which they would take up the Scholarship. The Scholar will be required to apply for a British Academy/ESRC award in the normal way prior to taking up the Scholarship, and (if initially unsuccessful) to re-apply in 1999.
Applications should be addressed to Charles Shaw, Secretary to the Carlyle Committee, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford, OX1 2JD, and should include a curriculum vitae together with a statement of research interests, and the names and addresses of a supervisor and one other person. Applications should reach him by 28 February 1998. Candidates should arrange for their referees to send letters of reference to the Secretary by the same date. Short-listed candidates will be asked to submit written work by 15 April.
