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 the award of a doctorate. Please note that unsuccessful applicants are not permitted to re-apply unless invited by the BA to do so.
Oxford Humanities currently hosts over 20 BA Postdoctoral Fellows. Abstracts of current and former Fellows' projects can be found on the British Academy website: http://www.britac.ac.uk/postdoctoral-fellowships-past-awards.
Eligibility: Applicants must have obtained their doctorate recently (for the October 2019 deadline, the viva must have been passed after 1 April 2017 and no later than 1 April 2020), and must not have held an established teaching post in an institution of higher education. If you have previously applied to the scheme, you can only re-apply if you have been invited by the BA to do so.
