Visiting Researcher Nomination

The Institute of Irish Studies is happy to nominate for Visiting Scholar status at QUB any qualified scholar intending to visit Queen's for a period of time to engage in research collaboration with any Associate Fellow in Irish Studies.

There is no stipend or allowance associated with Visiting Scholar status at QUB and no guarantee of workspace, but where appropriate and possible, Irish Studies will seek to find workspace for the period of the visit in the Irish Studies building. Visiting Scholar status grants access to the the University Library and IT resources, a temporary QUB email account, as well as an invitation to participate in Irish Studies and other research seminars in the university.

Visiting Scholar status is usually granted for a period up to three years, but can be renewed if the research collaboration extends beyond that period.

Applicants for Visiting Scholar should hold a doctorate or other relevant higher degree, and are required to work in collaboration with, or under the supervision of, a member of QUB academic staff.

The University's guide to Visiting Scholars can be found here: 

We also welcome applications for Visiting Student status from current students visiting from other academic institutions: information is available at 

Researchers who would like to be nominated for Visiting Scholar or Visiting Student through Irish Studies should contact the Director at
