BA Postdoctoral Fellowships 2017-18 – School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, University of Oxford

The School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography at the University of Oxford wishes to invite expressions of interest for the upcoming BA Postdoctoral Fellowships call. 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.

Expressions of interest will be considered for departmental support by the Head of Department and Research Director, and successful candidates will be invited to submit an outline application to the British Academy, with support from the departmental Research Development Officer. Each expression of interest will be assessed on its individual merit, and there is no quota for the number of candidates that will be selected to apply through the department.

Please check your eligibility against the scheme criteria when they are announced.

To be considered for institutional support of your application at the University of Oxford, please ensure that the relevant unit of the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography is aware (see for more details), then send the following to<> by noon on Wednesday 16 August 2017.

∙ An outline of research (max 3 pages incl. references, 12 point, 1.5 spaced).
∙ A CV (max 2 pages).
∙ A statement of support from mentor(s). The BA require a mentor within the institution, the department requires a member of School staff to mentor each post-doc to ensure our post-docs are fully integrated in departmental life. Two mentors are acceptable.

If you have any queries about this process, or about the department, please contact the Research Development Officer via<>
