British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded to outstanding early career researchers in the humanities and social sciences to enable them to pursue an independent research project, towards the completion of a significant piece of publishable research.

For the Institute of Archaeology review, prospective applicants must complete the online application form via Flexi-Grant, the British Academy Grants Management System, and generate a PDF which should be emailed to Jo Dullaghan, Institute of Archaeology Research Administrator (j.dullaghan@ucl.ac.uk), alongside a CV (max 2 pages, A4) by latest 5pm on Wednesday 19 September.

The Institute of Archaeology review panel will assess draft applications on the following criteria only: quality of the individual applicant appropriate to their career stage (peer-reviewed publications etc.), ambition and feasibility of the research proposal, fit of the project with the applicant's existing experience and with current Institute of Archaeology research.

Following the initial review by the Institute of Archaeology panel, selected candidates will then be mentored through the application process by UCL and Institute of Archaeology staff.

  • UCL Institute of Archaeology deadline: 5pm on 19 September 2018
  • British Academy deadline (incl. Referee Statement & Organisation Approval): 17 October 2018
