The British Academy will shortly be inviting applications for its postdoctoral fellowships. Closing date information has not been confirmed by the academy but is expected to fall in autumn 2015. The following call details are taken from the previous round and are subject to change. The fellowships enable early-career researchers to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in a university environment, with the aim of developing their curriculum vitae and improving their prospects of obtaining permanent lecturing posts. Fellowships are tenable for three years and cover fellows’ salaries, small-scale research expenses up to £6,000, costs towards the time of a mentor, and the host institution’s estates and indirect costs.
