The Parkes Institute

Visiting fellowship scheme

The Parkes Institute offers visiting fellowships to academics in the field of Jewish/non-Jewish relations

Fellows will be based in Southampton and are expected to attend Parkes events (such as evening research seminars and afternoon doctoral seminars) and to participate in the intellectual life of the Institute. Fellows will be asked either to deliver a seminar paper or to present their work to students in the form of a teaching session or master class.


Applications are currently closed. Information about future visiting fellow opportunities will be listed here and shared via our social media accounts. Please check back in the future for more information.
