Sociology welcomes applications for British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships

The British Academy Postdoctoral 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, which will be assisted by full membership of an academic community of established scholars working in similar fields. Approximately 45 Fellowships will be available from the British Academy in 2017.

The 2017 round will open soon in August 2017. The closing date for applications is anticipated to be beginning of October 2017.

The Department of Sociology at Warwick has an excellent track record in supporting early career fellows and we are now inviting suitably qualified candidates to support in the British Academy scheme. Due to intense researcher interest, the Department will select a limited number of fellowship applications to support in the 2017 competition. These applications will be selected through a competitive internal selection process.
