The Faculty is delighted to receive applications in any area of History. In this coming cycle we would be particularly keen to receive applications in the following general areas:
Modern European History, American History and Modern British History. But we are open to all strong proposals.
Potential candidates should first contact a suitable mentor from among our existing staff; if needing guidance on whom to approach, please contact the Research Director Professor John H. Arnold. Please note that the scheme is competitive, both at the internal stage, and then in the subsequent application to the British Academy. The Faculty will nominate a small number of successful candidates to the University’s selection process; some will then go on to compete at a national level in the funding competition.
For further details on the scheme, please consult the British Academy website.
The aim of the British Academy (BA) 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.
Applicants must be a UK or EEA national, or have completed a doctorate at a UK university. Any applicant who does not fall into one of these categories must demonstrate a strong prior association with the UK academic community, for example through having already been employed in a temporary capacity (longer than twelve months) at a UK university.
