BIAA Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships 2017/18

British Institute at Ankara

Applications are now invited for a Post-doctoral Research Fellow position 2017/18.

The candidate should normally have completed a doctorate within the last two years at a UK University.

The Fellowship will be tenable for up to 24 months from 1 September 2017. The Fellow will be based at the Institute in Ankara and will be required to spend at least two-thirds of the period of the Fellowship at the institute. The remaining one-third can be spent outside Ankara for research purposes after consultation with the Director.

The subject of the proposed research should focus on Turkey and/or the Black Sea littoral and may fall within any of the academic disciplines of the arts, humanities and social sciences. The research plan should present a timetable of the anticipated research and include deliverables. It should lead to substantial publications either in monograph and/or in article form. Based on the submitted research plan, the BIAA will decide upon the duration of the fellowship offered (12 to 24 months).

The fellow will be awarded £20,000 per annum, payable monthly, including 22 days of leave.  All costs including travel (to and from Turkey and any academic travel, such as conferences), health insurance, visa and accommodation need to be covered by this annual amount.  Accommodation will be available at the Institute in Ankara, as required, at a rate of £10 per night, or £250 per month. It is important to note that, due to changed regulations regarding residence permits in Turkey, the fellows will be obliged to take a health insurance policy from a Turkish company for the duration of their stay. The BIAA will help organising this once the fellows have arrived in Ankara.

Applications will be accepted from 1 April 2017.  Applicants should submit through our online system by following this link the closing date for applications is 28 April 2017.

TWO written references MUST be sent directly to by your referees by the closing date.  This should be on official letterhead (as an email attachment) or in email form, as long as the position of the referee in his/her HEI is known.
