Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies Option
The period of tenure for a Visiting Scholar of the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies is normally between two and six months during term time (summer visits are not possible) and must include at least one University of Oxford term. Exceptionally, other lengths of time may be considered. Visiting Scholars must be established, senior scholars in their field.
As a Visiting Scholar of the OCHJS, you will be invited to attend and participate in our academic activities. Additionally, you will be advised to apply for a Bodleian Readers Card to access the Bodleian Library system at your own cost (details may be found here). Upon completion of your Visiting Scholar term, you will be required to submit a summary of your research for publication in our Annual Report.
Visiting Scholars do not receive a stipend or any payment from the OCHJS. Additionally, Visiting Scholars are responsible for making their own visa (if applicable), travel, and housing arrangements independently.
Applications for and queries regarding Visiting Scholar status should be sent to the OCHJS Academic Registrar, Ms Madeleine Trivasse. Applications may be submitted at any time in the academic year. Details of the application procedure and form can be downloaded below:
