The Edward Worth Library, Dublin, is offering two research fellowships (duration one month each), to be held in 2017. The closing date is Monday 3 April 2017.

The two research fellowships seek to encourage research relevant to the collections of the library.

The Edward Worth Library is a collection of 4,300 books, left to Dr Steevens’ Hospital by Edward Worth (1676-1733), an early eighteenth-century Dublin physician. The collection is particularly strong in three areas: early modern medicine, early modern history of science and, given that Worth was a connoisseur book collector interested in fine bindings and rare printing, the History of the Book. Research does not, however, have to be restricted to these three key areas. Further information about the collection and the catalogues may be found on their website.

The closing date is Monday 3 April 2017.
