The AfOx Visiting Fellows Program is designed to enhance academic mobility and network building and is open to all disciplines across all the University departments and applications from female and underrepresented researchers are welcome.

This may be an existing academic collaborator or a new potential collaborator with whom the applicant has established contact before applying for the Fellowship.

During the Fellowship, AfOx Fellows will be associated with a Department and a College within the university and they can apply to work with scholars based in any of the University’s departments.
They will also be asked to select which of the AfOx research themes: Healthy People, Innovation for Prosperity, Integrated Societies, and Green Futures, that their project most closely aligns with.
The Fellows appointed will be provided with an en-suite, single occupancy study bedroom with all meals provided in the host college.
