International Placement Schemes – AHRC and ESRC

International Placement Scheme Showcase Invitation

The AHRC and ESRC invite you to a showcase of funded fellowship opportunities for PhD students and
early career researchers (ECR), through our International Placement Scheme (IPS), at these world-leading international research institutions:

Harry Ransom Center, at The University of Texas at Austin, USA
Huntington Library, California, USA
Library of Congress, Washington D.C., USA
National Institutes for the Humanities, Japan
Shanghai Theatre Academy, China
Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C., USA
Yale Center for British Art, Connecticut, USA

IPS fellowships run for up to six months and include a travel and living stipend; unparalleled access to collections, facilities,
curators and other scholars; and opportunities to present work, network and make international contacts.

The showcases will include presentations from IPS alumni and AHRC staff.
Lunch will be provided, during which all speakers will be available to discuss the scheme.

The IPS is open to ECRs and AHRC & ESRC-funded PhD students. ESRC candidates may only apply to Library of Congress.
