The Postdoctoral Fellowships Scheme is the Academy’s flagship programme for early career academics, based at universities around the UK.
It enables outstanding early career scholars to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in a university environment. The primary emphasis is on completing a significant piece of publishable research, giving award holders a base on which to build a successful academic career.
Chief Executive of the British Academy, Robin Jackson, said:
“We are delighted to welcome this new cohort of Postdoctoral Fellows to the Academy; competition for these awards is always keen, and I congratulate them on their success.
“Providing support for the next generation of researchers is a major priority for the British Academy, and our flagship Postdoctoral Fellowships scheme is a vital part of that endeavour. By providing the very best early career academics with three years funding for their research and development needs, the Postdoctoral Fellowships scheme helps them to deliver outstanding work while also boosting their skills, knowledge and confidence.
“We wish the Postdoctoral Fellows every success and look forward to seeing the results of their work.”
The full list of Postdoctoral Fellowships is available on the British Academy website.
