Throughout the four decades of its existence, the Centre has enabled many dozens of Visiting Fellows from around the world to pursue research in Oxford across all areas of Jewish history, literature, language, and thought. During the course of their fellowships, Visiting Fellows have access to the library facilities of the Leopold Muller Memorial Library and the Bodleian Library in Oxford through their personal University Cards.
As a Visiting Fellow of the OCHJS, you will be invited to participate in and contribute to our academic activities. Additionally, shared office space will be made available for you in our building, the Clarendon Institute. Two weeks before the completion of your Visiting Fellowship, you will be required to submit a summary of your research for publication in our Annual Report.
Visiting Fellows receive stipends from the OCHJS, the particulars of which will be outlined in each separate call for applications. Visiting Fellows are responsible for making their own visa (if applicable), travel, and housing arrangements independently.
Senior academics are invited to apply for Visiting Fellowships as part of our Oxford Seminars in Advanced Jewish Studies (OSAJS), through which we currently host our Oxford School of Rare Jewish Languages (OSRJL) Visiting Fellowships, Salo and Jeannette Baron Visiting Fellowships in Jewish History OCHJS-IHBMR Visiting Fellowships in Manuscript Studies. Details regarding when applications for these opportunities open for submissions are posted on our website when relevant. For more information about previous OSAJS cohorts, please click here.
