        Subject: Funded Willard McCarty Fellowship for early career researchers

Dear All,

The Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London, encourages
early career researchers to apply for the funded Willard McCarty
Fellowship scheme for their visits to the Department in spring term
2020. The call is out
(https://blogs.kcl.ac.uk/ddh/willard-mccarty-fellowship/) and the
deadline to apply is 7^th January 2020.

Best wishes,




Access to Fellowship

Access to the Willard McCarty Fellowship is given to
interdisciplinary-minded academic and non-academic researchers who must
have a PhD either awarded or in hand; or equivalent experience. The
route to the scheme is to apply as outlined in the Section "How and When
to Apply". Candidates will be selected based on the evaluation made by
the committee formed from internal and external experts.

The Fellowship must be undertaken at the Department of Digital
Humanities for a period from one to two weeks.

Grants of up to £2,500 to successful candidates will cover the following:

   * Round trip standard class fares
   * Accommodation and subsistence

We can provide advice, but appointees must make their own travel and
living arrangements. They will need to seek additional funding elsewhere
to cover any expenses that exceed the grant.

The Role of Fellows

Fellows will be affiliated with the interdisciplinary programme and
international staff of the Department, and provided with office space.
Fellows will be welcome to attend classes and seminars, to work with the
staff of the Department, meet affiliated partners, such as staff of
King’s Digital Lab, and access Strand campus and all facilities of the
Maughan Library. During their stay, holders of the Fellowship will be
required to give one lecture to staff of the Department. In addition,
they may give one seminar to graduate and postgraduate students.  The
Department will appoint Mentors during the period of their stay to
advise Fellows on writing and publishing, so that if they wish, they may
submit a revised version of their lecture for publication in a suitable
high-impact journal.

How and When to Apply?

Applications for the WM Fellowship 2019-20 open on Monday 28^th October
2019, and close on Tuesday 7^th January 2020.
