Humanities Research Centre doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships

Posted on 2 March 2020

We are now inviting applications for our Humanities Research Centre Doctoral Fellowships and Postdoctoral Research Fellowships.

HRC Doctoral Fellowships 2020

HRC doctoral fellowships are open to York arts and humanities PhD students currently in their third year of full time study (or at the equivalent stage of part time study). Each eligible HRC-affiliated department or centre - Archaeology, English and Related Literature, History, History of Art, Language and Linguistic Science, Music, Philosophy, Theatre, Film, Television and Interactive Media and the Centre for Medieval Studies - may nominate one candidate for an HRC Doctoral Fellowship. The nine resulting candidates will then automatically progress to the HRC Doctoral Fellowship Finals which will take place throughout the afternoon of Tuesday 23rd June 2020.  

More details of the doctoral fellowships and the application process can be found here.  Applications must be received by departments by the specified deadline (we suggest 5th May but departments are free to set their own deadline).  The departmental nominations must reach the HRC by noon on Tuesday 26th May 2020.
