British Academy Post-doctoral Fellowship Scheme


The British Academy will be seeking applications for their Post-doctoral Fellowship scheme in MT16. All candidates who have been formally awarded their doctorate within three years prior to the submission of an application are eligible, as are applicants who have not yet submitted their theses, but who expect to do so in time to have the viva voce examination on or before 1 April in the year in which the award will be taken up. Applicants must also not have held a permanent academic post.

Although the deadline for the MT16 application round has not yet been set, there is a deadline for applications to be submitted to the Humanities Division and University for central approval.  Prior to this, the Faculty needs to make decisions about which applications it is able to support. If you are intending on applying to this scheme, please send outline applications to recruitment@mod-langs.ox.ac.uk by 12 noon on Monday 3 August 2015.

You will need to submit the following: 
–  A completed version of the BA_PDF_MML_Faculty_application_form (including your draft research proposal)
–  A 2 page CV
– Please also ask your proposed mentor (or an appropriate referee, who can be from outside Oxford) to provide a short review of your research proposal and your ability to complete it to this same address by 12 noon on Monday 3 August 2015.

It would also be advisable to apply through an institution other than the one where you have completed your doctorate and, as all institutions are keen to support these fellowships, it would be strongly advised to find as good a fit for your intended project as possible.
