The Department of History, Classics and Archaeology (part of the School of Social Sciences, History and Philosophy at Birkbeck, University of London) invites applications for Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships. These prestigious awards provide postdoctoral reseachers with an opportunity to undertake a significant project of original research and to progress their academic career. The fellowships are for three years and are based upon a matched funding agreement between the Trust and the host institution. Birkbeck is keen to build upon its past success with this scheme by selecting outstanding candidates to support for the 2016-17 call.
Birkbeck will sponsor one exceptional candidate with expertise in any field of nineteenth- and twentieth-century continental European history. In addition, we hope to support at least one other exceptional applicant in any field of history, classics or archaeology. If successful, the fellowship holder(s) will carry out their own research project and also have the opportunity to develop and teach advanced BA and/or MA option modules in their field of expertise, as well as contributing to team-taught introductory courses where appropriate.
