Exeter College (part of the University of Oxford) invites applications for the Sir John Elliott Fellowship in Early Modern Spanish Studies. This post is made possible through the generosity of Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica (CEEH).

The Fellowship will be tenable for a period of 36 months from 1 September 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The main duties of the post are to engage in advanced study and research in the area of Early Modern Spanish Studies – specifically, into some aspect of Spanish cultural expression between 1450 and 1700.  Culture is understood as including literature, visual & performing arts, material culture and history of knowledge. The Fellow will build an international research profile through innovative original research, preparing work for publication (in monographs and/ or journals), and participating in international conferences. The postholder will also be a member of the Governing Body at Exeter College, with associated administrative and Trustee duties.

There will be no teaching obligation attached to the Fellowship, although the postholder will be welcome to do a limited amount of teaching within the collegiate University if they wish to do so, and especially where such teaching experience will enhance the career development of the postholder.
