The National Army Museum Postdoctoral Fellowship is an award made to outstanding early career researchers in military history and associated fields. The Fellowship is intended to aid the completion of publishable research on the history and heritage of the British Army and its forebears, and to assist the Fellow to develop their career within a community of established scholars. The Fellowship offers the opportunity to strengthen an individual research profile, gain experience of an academic environment, and work closely with a major national heritage institution. The Fellow will create and contribute to the creation of knowledge by undertaking, publishing, and disseminating research into the History of the British Army. They will both conduct independent investigation and work closely with the members of the University of Birmingham Centre for War Studies and with the historians, curators, and other staff of the National Army Museum. The Fellow will receive mentorship from a senior academic at University of Birmingham and at the National Army Museum. This Fellowship is intended to assist early-career scholars to boost their prospects of a permanent position within the academic or heritage sectors.
You will be an early-career scholar building a career within the academic or heritage sectors. You will have completed a doctorate in history, engaging with the military, social, cultural, political, or economic, history of war. You will be able to submit an interesting and exciting proposal for completing independent research relating to the themes and collections of the National Army Museum during the term of the fellowship. Proposals involving any appropriate methodology and outputs will be considered, with preference given to proposals which relate to or complement the research interests of faculty members of the University of Birmingham Department of History.
