The History Faculty, University of Cambridge invites applications for British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships. The Faculty is delighted to receive applications in any area of History. Cambridge makes an internal ranking of these applications; the reason for the August deadline is to give the Faculty time to review them. We then nominate the strongest proposals to the University’s Research Strategy Office, for submission to the British Academy itself in October.
Potential candidates should first contact a suitable academic mentor from among our existing staff; if you need guidance on whom to approach, please contact the Research Director Professor Annabel Brett (firstname.lastname@example.org). Once you find a willing mentor, please ask them to write a letter direct to the Faculty commenting on your suitability for the scheme, what you would bring to the Faculty, and your longer-term employment prospects.
Then, prepare your application to the Faculty, which must be submitted as a single pdf document comprising:
The application must be sent to email@example.com by 5pm, 23 August 2021.
You should ask your mentor to send their letter to the same address by the same deadline.
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.
