British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Faculty of English at the University of Oxford invites expressions of interest from postdoctoral and completing graduate scholars who wish to apply for the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme, for entry in 2021.

The Fellowships are designed to enable outstanding, recent postdoctoral scholars in the Humanities or Social Sciences to obtain experience of research and teaching in the university environment for a period of three years, to strengthen their research and teaching track record and to improve their prospects of obtaining permanent posts by the end of the fellowship. Please note that there are strict eligibility requirements and potential candidates are advised to check these carefully. 

Further details can be found on the British Academy website and the Faculty of English's Postdoctoral Fellowships page.

There is no guarantee that applications which arrive after this date will be processed. Please note that all applicants should have secured the agreement of a potential mentor within the Faculty, who should send a brief statement of support to the above email address by the same deadline.
