Call for Visitors 2023 – 2025

We invite researchers from all areas, places and career stages to visit the Epidemy Lab in Edinburgh and to collaborate with the team on research relating to the modern history of epidemiology. This call is open to anyone whose work aligns with the broad aims and goals of the research carried out within the ERC-funded project The Epidemiological Revolution. We seek to expand our horizon to engage with research beyond our own and to create opportunities to build a wider network in the emerging historiography of modern epidemiology. While we welcome visitors with dedicated historical interests, this call also includes researchers working on more contemporary questions e.g from anthropology or sociology and STS, who bring an explicit interest in historical perspectives on epidemiology.

We will be able to support and host up to two visitors per research theme (Modelling, Correlation, Configuration) over the life time of the project and offer reimbursement of travel costs and a 500£ contribution towards the cost of accommodation in Edinburgh. There is no restriction on the duration of a visit but we would assume at least a length of one-month to enable and encourage collaboration. We also invite visitors to present their research to the Lab or to workshop a draft or a paper with our group during their visit.

Interested applicants should  familiarise themselves with each of the themes on the project’s page  and send us a short informal application, indicating their research interests (~250 words), the dates of their planned visit and attach their CV to This is a standing application and we will consider applications until the funds have run out.
