TIDE is a forum to bring together Oxford-based researchers from all disciplines and at all stages, as well as visiting scholars and collaborators working on global transculturality, mobility, and cultural encounters, and questions of race, belonging, and identity in the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries.

We welcome researchers who would like to be more actively involved in the TIDE team. Eligibility includes doctoral or postdoctoral research specialisation in a relevant field and a commitment to engaging with and contributing to TIDE initiatives. Please contact us by email:

We particularly encourage researchers from underrepresented backgrounds.

Undergraduate Internship and Graduate Research Assistantship Schemes

The TIDE internship and research assistantships are aimed at students of departments and faculties associated with CEMS. They are designed to offer mentored opportunities to work on specific projects within the TIDE community, to gain insight into research processes and knowledge of cutting-edge projects in their area of interest.

Calls for internship and research assistantship expressions of interest are announced periodically. Please check our Events and News page for updates.
