British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships

Application Deadline - 12 September 2013

The School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures is delighted to invite applications from exceptional Scholars to the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme.

British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships

The aim of the British Academy in making these awards is to offer opportunities for outstanding early career researchers to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in a university environment which will develop their curriculum vitae and improve their prospects of obtaining permanent lecturing posts by the end of the Fellowship. The primary emphasis is on completion of a significant piece of publishable research, which will be assisted by full membership of an academic community of established scholars working in similar fields

To ensure we are submitting the strongest applications to the Academy, we have introduced an internal deadline of Wednesday 12th September for draft applications. Following this deadline, application will be reviewed and ranked in the first instance by Heads of Department before the final submission decisions are made by our Head of School and Research Director. Successful applicants, will be informed and given any feedback, where necessary, to revise their proposal two weeks before the official 10 October deadline.

Please complete your application on the British Academy’s e-gap2 online system. Do not submit the application at this stage. A working copy can be downloaded from the system for the purposes of the internal review.
