The Fulbright Scotland Distinguished Scholar Award at Edinburgh contributes to the intellectual life of the university through seminars, public lectures and curriculum development in any discipline within the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences based at the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities (IASH) for six months. The program is designed for eminent scholars with substantial experience and publications in their respective fields. Candidates who have not recently spent a considerable time in the UK are preferred. In addition to conducting academic research, the University would expect the Distinguished Scholar to participate in lectures, research seminars and staff seminars at both the host School and the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities. While they will be based at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) for the duration of their visit, the Distinguished Scholar is expected to nominate a host school from the following list: Business School, Centre for Open Learning, Divinity, Economics, Edinburgh College of Art, Health in Social Science, History, Classics and Archaeology, Law, Literatures, Languages and Cultures, Moray House School of Education and Sport, Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences, and Social and Political Science. We also especially welcome interdisciplinary applications in Decoloniality, the Medical Humanities, Environmental Humanities, Digital Humanities or Gender and Sexualities Studies. A letter of invitation is preferred. Letters of invitation should come from a member of staff at one of the College's 12 Schools, not from IASH directly.
