Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities

British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship Competition

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

For application procedures, deadlines and number of awards offered each year, please visit the British Academy website.

Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships

Early Career Fellowships aim to provide career development opportunities for those who are at a relatively early stage of their academic careers but with a proven record of research. It is anticipated that a Fellowship will lead to a more permanent academic position. Applications are welcomed in any discipline. Fellowships can be held at universities or at other institutions of higher education in the UK.

For further details on eligibility and application procedure, please check the Leverhulme website
