DEADLINE 30 September 2014

The Centre of Latin American Studies (CLAS), University of Cambridge, invites applications for hosting at CLAS, from applicants for British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships from October 2015.

Applications are welcome from Latin Americanists working in any field eligible for the British Academy scheme, including (but not limited to) modern history, anthropology, politics, literature, cinema and/or visual arts. Successful applicants would be asked to make a modest contribution to teaching on the MPhil in Latin American Studies, within their chosen discipline. They would be expected to play a full part in the thriving research community based at CLAS, and to live in or near Cambridge during the week in term time, unless carrying out fieldwork.

The BA deadline for outline applications is 5pm on 8 October 2014, with application forms available now from the e-GAP system (for more information see http://www.britac.ac.uk/funding/guide/pdfells.cfm)

Applicants who wish to be considered for hosting at CLAS should send a CV and an outline of their project by 30 September 2014 to the Centre Administrator, Mr Samuel Mather (sjrm2@cam.ac.uk), for the attention of the Director, Dr Joanna Page. They should also arrange for a reference to be sent by the same deadline.
