British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme

Posted on 30 August 2017

Express your interest now for opportunities available in 2017/18

We are now inviting expressions of interest for applications to the 2017/18 British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme. 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.

Before contacting us, please ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria for the Fellowships. 

We will support candidates, who can demonstrate a track record of excellent research, evidenced through such things as doctoral funding and/or publications in top journals.

The departmental deadline to submit an expression of interest for this scheme is 29 September 2017 and should include:

  • CV, including your name and current institution, the date of submission of your doctorate or date of your doctoral viva One paragraph on your proposed project
  • One paragraph why you see the Department of History at York a good fit for your planned project.
  • One paragraph underlining why you consider yourself to be an outstanding candidate
  • Writing sample (published or unpublished)

 Expressions of interest and any questions should be directed at Dr Henrice Altink (Chair of Research)
