CfA: UCL-Institute of the Americas Post-doctoral Fellowships


CL-Institute of the Americas would like to welcome expressions of interest for Postdoctoral Fellowship Schemes. 

Details of relevant Fellowship schemes can be found on UCL's Postdoctoral Fellowship Schemes page.: <http://www.ucl.ac.uk/shs/fellowship-schemes/pdfs>
To submit your expression of interest please complete this application form and email it along with two referee reports to the Institute Administrative Manager, Mrs Abi Espie
(<mailto:a.espie@ucl.ac.uk>a.espie@ucl.ac.uk).


Internal deadlines for applications specific to certain schemes can be found below.
·         British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship: The aim of the British Academy in making these awards is to offer opportunities for outstanding early career researchers to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in a university environment which will develop their curriculum vitae and improve their prospects of obtaining permanent lecturing posts by the end of the Fellowship. The primary emphasis is on completion of a significant piece of publishable research, which will be assisted by full membership of an academic community of established scholars working in similar fields.
The British Academy runs a two stage application process each year, with the deadline for outline applications falling in early October and for the second stage in February or early March the following year, for Fellowships to be taken up at the beginning of the following academic year. The British Academy will not make available the online application form or notes of guidance for 2014 until mid-August, when they will also confirm the exact external deadline for submission of proposals. Currently our internal deadline to submit an expression of interest for this scheme is 1st September 2014; this is subject to change once the British Academy deadlines are confirmed.


·         The Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships Early Career Fellowships aim to provide career development opportunities for those who are at a relatively early stage of their academic careers, but who have a proven record of research. The expectation is that Fellows should undertake a significant piece of publishable work during their tenure, and that the Fellowships should lead to a more permanent academic position.
The Leverhulme Trust deadline for this scheme is usually early March, however approval by the Faculty at the host institution is required much earlier, as such our internal deadline to submit an expression of interest is 8th December 2014; this is subject to change once the Leverhulme Trust deadline is confirmed.
