Visiting Scholars will be senior academics (normally those who have reached the equivalent of Professor, Associate Professor or UK University Lecturer level), who would like to conduct their research while benefitting from the intellectual support of OCLW and Wolfson College.
Successful applicants will have the title of Visiting Scholars of the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing for the duration of their stay, will participate in all its events during that time, and will have access to our Visiting Scholars writing group.
Visiting Scholars will obtain membership of Wolfson Common Room (entitling the scholar to a University Card and use of the Bodleian Library; dining rights in hall; use of the college library and sports facilities; room hire and eligibility of most College committees).
Visiting Scholars may join College clubs and societies (a charge may apply for some clubs), use all the College facilities, attend Guest Night dinners and bring guests to dine in Hall for lunch and dinner. They may also apply to the Accommodation Office for housing during their stay, although there is a great demand, and it may not be possible to meet scholars' needs.
We do not provide funding (or help in searching for funding) for accommodation, travel, or living expenses.
Profiles of our current Visiting Scholars can be found on our People page.
