The University of London offers an exceptional programme of fellowships in the arts, humanities, social sciences and human rights, with opportunities to be based in London and our Institute in Paris.

Beyond merely receiving funding, researchers at all stages of their career can benefit from the world-leading resources of our research libraries and the highly supportive, interdisciplinary research communities fostered in our specialist centres and institutes.

Institute in Paris fellowships

The University of London Institute in Paris, in collaboration with the Institute of Historical Research, the London Policy and Research partnership, the Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL) and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), offers the Banister Fletcher Global Fellowship. The Fellowship aims to foster interdisciplinary research that reflects and informs the ways urban environments are responding to deepening inequalities and environmental crisis, as well as the effects of rising nationalism. It encourages candidates to consider how their work will benefit the Paris-London framework, while also contributing to the development of it.
