The Faculty of Arts at the University of Warwick encourages outstanding postdoctoral scholars to apply to The British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme, for Fellowships hosted at Warwick starting in the 2024/25 academic year.
The Faculty is one of the world’s top 50 Arts and Humanities faculties and is home to a thriving research culture spread across six Departments and Schools. These are Classics and Ancient History; English and Comparative Literary Studies: History; Modern Languages and Cultures; Cross-Faculty Studies; and the School of Creative Arts, Performance and Visual Cultures, which includes Film and Television Studies, Theatre and Performance Studies, History of Art, the Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies, and the Warwick Writing Programme.
Applications are welcomed from candidates who have a strong research profile and meet the following eligibility criteria:
- Applicants are expected to have completed their viva voce between 1 April 2021 and 1 April 2024.
- They must either be a UK/EEA national, have completed their doctorate at a UK university or have a strong prior association with the UK academic community
- They must not yet have held a permanent academic appointment
Appointments at the University of Warwick are dependent on the award of the Fellowship. The expectation is that Fellows should undertake a significant piece of publishable work during the funded period.
Prospective applicants are required to identify an academic mentor at the University of Warwick. Candidates should approach their mentor to discuss the project at the earliest opportunity.
If their application is approved, candidates will be invited to submit their full proposal through Flexi-Grant, the British Academy’s application portal. They will be supported in this process by the University’s Research and Impact Services team.
