Oxford Humanities - British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships
This scheme is designed to enable outstanding early career scholars to obtain experience of research and teaching in the university environment, which will strengthen their curriculum vitae and improve their prospects of obtaining permanent posts by the end of the fellowship. Awards are for three years and applicants must be within three years of their successful viva examination – though exemption may be granted for reasons occurring after the date of the viva voce examination such as: maternity leave, illness, family commitments etc. Please note that unsuccessful applicants are not permitted to re-apply unless invited by the BA to do so.
We are keen to encourage prospective Postdoctoral Fellows from outside Oxford to explore the possibility of applying through the Humanities Division, as well as those currently based here. Initially, you should make contact with the person at Oxford who you would like to be your mentor and ask if they would be prepared to undertake this role. Once they have agreed, follow the steps to obtain approval from the relevant Faculty to make the application (see below).
Should you be interested in applying through Oxford for a BA PDF, please note that your expression of interest application will be assessed by the relevant Faculty in the first instance. The relevant internal deadlines and requirements for each of the Faculties in the Humanities will be listed here in the summer.
