The Rothermere American Institute is a centre for research in the field of American studies based at the University of Oxford, UK. It houses the Vere Harmsworth Library, with specialist collections of American materials, and also offers access to Oxford’s Bodleian Library. The Institute, which was opened in 2001 by former US President Bill Clinton, also has seminar rooms and offices for Fellows.
We are now inviting scholars to apply for fellowships to commence from September 2007. We offer fellowships for up to one year; however appointments may be awarded for shorter time periods.
No stipends are offered, but modern and efficient offices are provided to scholars, including computers, phones and access to administrative support. We also offer travel grants for research purposes with a value of up to £600. During the periods when the colleges of the University are in operation, we provide Senior Fellows with common room rights at one of the neighbouring colleges.
