The ATCH (Architecture Theory Criticism History) Research Centre invites Expressions of Interest for the Visiting Fellows Program 2019. The program welcomes Expressions of Interest from scholars with varying levels of experience who are carrying out critical research in architecture.
ATCH is located within the School of Architecture at The University of Queensland (UQ), in Brisbane, Australia. The Centre supports innovative and interdisciplinary research on the history, theory and criticism of architecture. Architecture and its place within a larger history of ideas is a strong focus within the Centre. Bringing together Postdoctoral Fellows, Research Fellows, Postgraduates and Academics from UQ’s School of Architecture, the centre offers a stimulating and rich environment for enquiry and debate. An active program of seminars, lectures, symposia, workshops and exhibitions is run throughout the year. For a full list of people, recent fellows and events please see ATCH Website.
The Visiting Fellows Research Program supports short term residencies of one to three months for scholars to work on innovative research on the history, theory and criticism of architecture. Projects that overlap with the work of existing ATCH scholars will be favoured. The program welcomes applicants from all levels of academia but particularly encourages proposals from new and mid-career scholars. Visiting Fellowships are not open to postgraduate students.
The Visiting Fellows Research Program will provide a return airfare to Brisbane and a workspace within the centre. All Fellows will have access to UQ libraries, including the Fryer Library and Architecture and Music Library. Support for accommodation may also be available depending on the applicant’s financial circumstances.
Visiting Fellows will be required to present their research in progress in a public lecture, participate in seminars and conferences organised during their residency, and contribute to HDR events. Published outcomes of research undertaken during the Fellowship should acknowledge ATCH and the UQ School of Architecture.
While ATCH Visiting Fellows are solicited through EOIs, the Centre also directly invites Fellows to participate in the program. See the ATCH website for full application details: http://atch.architecture.uq.edu.au/expressions-interest-atch-visiting-research-fellows-program-2019-0
EOIs should be submitted by email to: (firstname.lastname@example.org) by July 1, 2020. Candidates will be notified by September 1, 2020 if they have proceeded to the second stage.
