Gibbs Travelling Fellowships open for applications

Research vessel

Applications are open for women researchers who wish to carry out substantial fieldwork, with a Gibbs Travelling Fellowship.

This Fellowship is to help graduates who have considerable experience of research, at least and usually beyond doctoral level, and intend to undertake fieldwork projects outside the UK & Ireland. Research should be in Biology, Archaeology, Social Anthropology, or Sociology, with a preference for Archaeology or Biology.

The fund will pay field research, travel and subsistence expenses of the Fellow of up to £18,000 for the academic year 2023-24.

For the term of the Fellowship, Gibbs Fellows are elected Senior Members of Newnham College and part of the college community, and are warmly welcomed to research and social events, as well as enjoying other benefits.

They are required to submit a short summary of their research within two years of the end of the funded travel, and are invited to present their findings at a lecture before the annual dinner to celebrate the Gibbs Travelling Research Fellowship, to which all present and former Gibbs Fellows are invited.
