The British Academy has recently announced this year's competition for its prestigious Post-Doctoral Fellowships.  It is possible to spend part of the award period at one of the British International Research Institutes (BIRI), including the British School at Athens.  If you are interested in incorporating a stay at the BSA into your proposal, please contact the Director.


British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships: New Call for Proposals

Application forms are now on Flexi-Grant

The British Academy is currently inviting applications from early career researchers to apply for the BA Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme.

Applications for the Outline Stage of this scheme must be submitted via the Flexi-Grant® system, accessible at: https://britishacademy.flexigrant.com/

Intending applicants need to register themselves in the system, if not already registered, and should access full details by following the link from the Applicant Portal page to: Postdoctoral Fellowship Outline 2017-18.

The British Academy’s aim 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. The Fellowships will be tenable for three years from autumn 2018 in a United Kingdom university or other higher education institution.

Eligible applicants will be within three years of the award of their doctorate (viva voce examination on or after 1 April 2015, or expected to be held by 1 April 2018); and will have a doctorate from a UK university, be an EEA national, or otherwise have a clear pre-existing connection with the UK academic community.

Level of award: Fellowships are offered under the Full Economic Costing regime, and cover the full salary of an early career researcher and associated costs.

Deadline for submission of applications for the Outline Stage: 18 October 2017 at 5pm (UK time)

Deadline for Institutional Approval: 19 October 2017 at 5pm (UK time)

Result of Outline Stage announced before: late January 2018

Earliest start date for Fellowships to begin: 1 September 2018
